Description Richard D. Payne 2000-09-19 11:56:09 EDT
sndconfig reports that the ALi M5451 PCI South Bridge Audio is not
supported. However
support is provided by the trident audio driver in 2.2.16 and later. Here's
the entry from

Comment 3 Richard D. Payne 2000-09-21 09:52:55 EDT
I've attached a patch against 2.2.16-24 that enables the trident audio driver
whent he kernel
type is GENERIC, before this would only work is the kernel type was Nautilus.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-10-19 01:38:17 EDT
Oops, we mapped the *other* version of the ALI bridge in
the pcitable. Fixed in CVS of kudzu, will be in next build.

Assigning to the kernel for the kernel patch.
Comment 5 Richard D. Payne 2000-10-19 08:02:35 EDT
FWIW, the patch has been accepted for 2.2.18.
Comment 6 Phil Copeland 2001-06-04 12:53:38 EDT
Is this issue still unresolved?
Comment 7 Richard D. Payne 2001-06-04 15:30:43 EDT
detection seems to be fixed with 7.1RC1.
