Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222606
hack required to get Intel audio device to work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
I installed FC6, sound would not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Note: these are the devel alsa's that I updated in attempt to solve the problem.
I suspect the problem and "fix" will replicate with the shipping alsa.
Easily, given you have the hardware.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Acquire Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio
Controller - my T60 laptop comes with it.
2. Install fc6 with all updates.
3. Attempt to config sound.
4. Won't work.
I "fixed it" by adding two lines to rc.local:
modprobe -r snd_hda_intel
This solution was discover after a prolonged time of googling for a solution.
Please check the latest ALSA drivers, your soundcard should work out of the box
with them. How-to is here: http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa
Please attach /root/scsconfig.log (can be created by system-config-soundcard)

requested log file.
Do you use digital or analog output?
Digital did not work, so I am using analog.
okay, so you should have these lines in your /etc/asound.conf:
does the sound work with them after boot?
Sorry, that this took so long to respond to.
My /etc/asound.conf was completely commented out. I set them to what you
suggeste. Doesn't work, unless I did what I described.
New issue: With the latest kernel, kernel-18.104.22.168-42.fc6, the sound broke
immediately, even with my changes. So far the only fix I can find is to init 1,
manually monkey with the modprobes and then init 5 again. Ugh!
What's going on with alsa?
I enabled the internal modem in the bios and the sound started to work. I even
removed my hack.
May want to document this.
Yeah, that's a known issue on T60 :-(
