Description Christian Nolte 2005-07-12 08:14:06 EDT
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

How reproducible:

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

Thank you.

This kernel version also has the release-candidate 2 version of alsa-driver
(1.0.9rc2). This should be updated to 1.0.9b. 
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-07-19 09:54:49 EDT
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.
