Description of problem:
on initial installation of FC5 from a DVD iso, the system finds the sound device
and configures everything. i am able to choose and test sounds for both root
and user accounts. on re-boot, and after updating everything through yumex, the
sound device is not found, 'alsamixer' returns an error message.
see attached log file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
no sound response at all.

'System Tools - Soundcard Detection' shows the above device was successfully

alsamixer error message:
function snd_ctl_open failed for default: no such device
can you check "modprobe snd-cs4236"?
oops... it seems that does fix the problem, and i should have thought of trying
that first. the only remaining mystery here is why that changed on a simple
re-boot. thanks for the suggestion.
and now, i'm off to resolve a few more little mysteries.
