Description CJeness 2000-12-12 18:33:54 UTC
I did a "fresh" install on my ThinkPad 600x of RedHat 7.0.  The
installation correctly detected the sound card (Crystal Audio Fusion);
however, no sound is actually played.  I have tried using the same
"modules.conf" entries that worked under 6.2 without any success.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-12 22:11:01 UTC
What happens if you do:

modprobe cs46xx thinkpad=1

Does it then work better?

Comment 4 CJeness 2000-12-13 01:17:53 UTC
issuing the "modprobe cs46xx thinkpad=1" does not make any difference.  I still
do not here any 
sound at all.

Comment 5 CJeness 2000-12-13 01:21:26 UTC
I did mean "hear" and not "here".  Also, I have turned my volume up to the

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-13 16:17:20 UTC
Hm. What about:

modprobe -r cs46xx
modprobe cs46xx thinkpad=1 external_amp=1

Comment 7 CJeness 2000-12-13 18:22:04 UTC
The suggested commands do not resolve the sound issue.  There is still no
sound.  I also did an "lsmod" after issuing the commands and see the following:

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-13 20:04:08 UTC
What do you get if you run 'dmesg'?

Comment 9 CJeness 2000-12-13 21:12:05 UTC
Output from dmesg is given below.  One thing that has puzzled me is that the
ethernet card, USB and the sound card seem to be always put on the same
interrupt; i.e., 11.

Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-15 16:51:23 UTC
Hm. There's nothing there that would suggest that it's not working,
and I've got a 600x here that works fine.

Comment 11 CJeness 2001-01-15 17:43:56 UTC
What suggests to me that it is not working is that I do not here anything.  This
happens to be a dual boot computer -- OS/2 and Linux.  Under OS/2, the sound
works fine.  Can you post your modules.conf?  Did you do anything special to get
sound working?

Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-15 17:49:04 UTC
I don't deny that it doesn't work for you, there's just nothing in
the logs that indicate something failed.

My modules.conf is dead simple:

alias sound-slot-0 cs46xx

No options needed.

How are you testing the sound?

Comment 13 CJeness 2001-01-15 18:51:58 UTC
I am testing the sound by attempting to play a CD using the Gnome CD player
which displays automatically when I insert the CD.  This is the same technique
that I have used to test the sound on my 1472i ThinkPad where sound does work
correctly for the first time.  On the 600x, the CD appears to play based on the
elapsed time display; however, I do not here anything even when I turn the
volume up as loud as possible.

Comment 14 Alan Cox 2003-06-10 18:23:32 UTC
Closing. The problem turned out to be that the CS46XX on the TP600X is used as
an auxilliary sound device and the system sound device is the CS423x as with
other thinkpads of that era.

sndconfig told to not probe PCI devices should do the right thing

Comment 15 Bill Nottingham 2003-06-10 18:32:03 UTC
The sound on the 600*X* is native. I have one.
The 600 or 600E might use cs42xx.
