Comment 2 Vladimir Kotal 2006-03-29 19:32:24 UTC
curiously, it has somehow be connected to the fact that I have enabled/disabled
one of the NICs in the system by setting onboot value in
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth[01] because after enabling it again,
both modules are in place:

[techie@erazim ~]$ cat /proc/asound/modules
 0 snd_emu10k1
 1 cx88_alsa

and sounds plays fine

Comment 3 Vladimir Kotal 2006-03-31 20:53:58 UTC
This is really funny - I have rebooted the system and it seems that each time kernel initializes/probes 
devices in different order which causes disfunctionalities. In attached file erazim-dmesg-diff.txt are 
differences between reboot after which sound did not work and reboot after which sound did work (no I 
have not changed any HW config between reboots)

this seems to be pretty common problem - try searching google for 'EMU10K1_Audigy: probe  failed with

seems that there is IRQ clash

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 21:22:13 UTC
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed.

Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter
can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list
of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a
comment to the bug.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed.  See bug 207474 for further details.

If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.

If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.

Thank you.

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2006-11-24 23:10:33 UTC
This bug has been mass-closed along with all other bugs that
have been in NEEDINFO state for several months.

Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, this
is the only method we have of cleaning out stale bug reports
where the reporter has disappeared.

If you can reproduce this bug after installing all the
current updates, please reopen this bug.

If you are not the reporter, you can add a comment requesting
it be reopened, and someone will get to it asap.

Thank you.

Sound playing and recording (see bug 191076) works now so this bug can be closed.
