system-config-soundcard problem with SB awe64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
Description of problem:
When using Soundblaster AWE64 gold (ISA), system-config-soundcard presents *two*
detected audio devices. If the proper audio device is selected, the
asound.conf file gets written incorrectly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 4, all updates applied (as of Oct 12, 2005)
First, an SB awe64 sound card must be installed. Then...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system-config-soundcard. TWO audio devices will be displayed:
* Model: SB AWE64 Gold - CTL7002
* Model: SB AWE64 Gold - CTL0044
The first device should *not* be shown: the CTL7002 is the game port.
2. Select the CTL0044 device as the primary audio device
3. Exit the program
The /etc/asound.conf file contains:
# Generated by system-config-soundcard, do not edit by hand
This breaks some applications. For example, alsamixer will not work.
The file should contain:
If the game port device is selected, the asound.conf file get written correctly.
Could you please attach related lines from /etc/sysconfig/hwconf?
Here you go:

desc: "Creative SB AWE64 Gold - CTL7002"
fixed in devel.
