Description Phil Knirsch 2006-09-07 11:41:14 EDT
Description of problem:

After installing the latest Fedora Core Devel tree i've found that despite the
kernel and the system itself detecting and configuring the soundcard in my IBM
X60s laptop sound doesn't work.

Neither playing nor recording something yields and results.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest FC-devel tree
2. Try to play a sound during firstboot sound setup or later in the system
3. Enjoy the silence... :)
Actual results:

Sounds don't play/get recorded

Expected results:

Sounds should play ;)

Additional info:

I've attached the 2 system-config-soundcard debug files that are written when
you claim not to have heard any sounds. Looks like something isn't set up properly.

Please check if the internal Modem is enabled in BIOS. If it is disabled, enable
it and try i again. I mean to remember that this is a BIOS bug.

Did you try using the hardware volume control buttons (if any)
on the keyboard?

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!
