Description Dan Trainor 2007-07-30 11:35:50 EDT
Description of problem:

It appears that a Creative Labs Sound Blaster PCI512 may no longer be supported
under F7.  It was, however, supported under FC6 but no longer appears as part of
dmesg or lspci.  All attempts to initialize the card have failed.  The card has
been swapped between two PCI slots even, in the effort to mitigate a possible
hardware problem.

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

Supposing the snd-emu10k1 driver is still used under F7 for this device, as it
was under FC6, the following information may apply:

Hello Dan,

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 and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Good morning, Christopher -

I actually no longer work in the office where this machine is housed, however, I
do have remote access to it.

I have not made any progress on this bug - I simply let it go shortly after
submitting the bug.

If you have some things that you wish for me to try, I would be happy to do so.

I'll update the machine with the latest kernel and post my findings shortly

If you can attach the output from:

# lspci -vvxxx
# dmesg
# lsmod

that would be helpful. I'll then be able to re-assign to the relevant maintainer
at least. I'd also be interested to know whether any channels are available
running alsamixer and if muting/unmuting makes any difference.

Comment 4 Christopher Brown 2008-01-10 13:58:55 EST

Were you able to access the machine and test with the latest kernel?

Closing as per previous comment. Please re-open if this is still an issue for you.
