Description James Rankin 2006-04-05 07:14:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Using FC5, the sound card will fail to start about half the time. The soundcard
detection utility will still detect the card properly, but the test sound
doesn't play; I've attached a copy of the scsound.log file.
I've tried to play sounds several times in other apps - none work. Confusingly,
one time the test sound did NOT play in the soundcard detection app, but xmms
continued to work properly.
The hardware itself is working properly - no problems in the other operating
I'm running the i386 version of FC5 on an AMD64 - everything is 100% up to date
with the core and extras repos.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can only think this may be alsa related... I'm using:

How reproducible:
Can't consistently reproduce... the sound works fine when FC5 boots about half
the time. The other half, it doesn't. In some cases, running a "sudo
/sbin/modprobe cx88-alsa" fixes the problem.
The problem happened again this morning, but this modprobe did NOW work this time.

Steps to Reproduce:
