Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:20:51 EST
Description of problem:
I have an Audigy Player Soundcard and Mic-In and Line-In do not work with
alsa-driver 1.0.9-rc2. See
https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=1218 for further details.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.9rc2
Install any of the mentioned kernel-packages and see /proc/asound/version. Plug
any soundsource into line-in or mic-in and try to hear the sound.
alsamixer-settings all are unmuted but nothing can be heard.
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]
Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.
If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..
mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak
This kernel version also has the release-candidate 2 version of alsa-driver
(1.0.9rc2). This should be updated to 1.0.9b.
If this isn't in 2.6.13 already, the ALSA folks need to get their code merged
there. There will be a 2.6.13 update fairly quickly after its upstream release,
which should be just a few weeks away.
Fedora kernel policy is that we don't update random drivers to upstream
versions, as it brings a world of problems, which a lot of upstream developers
refuse to debug because the kernel ends up a hybrid of many different codebases.
By staying as close as possible to upstream, we get the benefits of being able
to escalate some bugs to their upstream developers.
