Originally reported to Redhat Bugzilla in $188118 and moved to Alsa as alsa
driver 2008. Suggested to move to RH kernel and linux kernel Machine uses
Southbrigade VT8251. Several have now reported problems with this board.
I initially reported this on April 6th as a sound issue. This is now traversed
from sound driver at RedHat to the Alsa forum and now to here. Two weeks have
passed since this was first reported and nearly a week to this forum. I held
off reporting this to Linux-kernel expecting some action on this bug, but see
there is none.
I will report this as I stated above, but will now consider removing the
operating system and installing Windows so as to move forward with testing and
implementation of business considerations here. It is clear that until open
source becomes more intuned towards business needs and timetables particularly
with kernel and driver issues, that Linux will be relegated to second tier
status within this organization and to the clients I service. Fedora or RHEL,
it makes no difference; and I've been working with Redhat Linux for nearly 10

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.
