Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 255021
ALi onboard soundcard not autodetected
Last modified: 2008-02-22 05:44:05 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC5 to Fedora 7 the 'soundcard' stopped working.
Running system-config-soundcard & asking it to play the sound test results in
silence; the error dialog box says "Automatic detection of the sound card did
not work". I've got all the sliders turned up to 100 in kmixer, I've tried
the speaker in all the likely audio jacks. I accidentally plugged it into the
microphone jack - I heard a bit of static, so the speakers _are_ able to make
some sound. And I do hear a little bit of static when I shut things down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to play a sound. /usr/bin/play, mplayer, kplayer, etc.
The Sounds of Silence.
Something besides Simon & Garfunkel.
It worked in FC5.
I've attached the scsrun.log and scsconfig.log, all in one file.
Created attachment 172981 [details]
combined scsrun.log and scsconfig.log

Looks like a problem in kernel/drivers...

It looks like your sound card is used by another application (or is nonfunctional).
Anyway, you have quite old sound drivers (1.0.14rc1) please try to update
I'd updated everything (yum update) as soon as I did the FC5-to-Fedora7
upgrade, and have been keeping it up-to-date since. Current versions of Alsa
& kernel are:
% rpm -qa '*alsa*' '*kernel*' | sort
uname -a reports:
Linux bob2 126.96.36.199-65.fc7 #1 SMP Tue Aug 21 21:50:50 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64
I haven't looked anywhere for more up-to-date versions of Alsa (I'll have to
do that tomorrow - it's getting late).
The sound card worked under FC5.
The 'sound card' is on the motherboard (an Abit AT8 32X, with an AMD 4400+).
Unfortunately s-c-s was removed from F9 and it's not going to be developed.
Closing as wontfix.
If you have any hardware support issue, please file it against kernel.
