Sound Blaster 16, which worked on 7.0, fails for the same configuration on
Using sndconfig indicates the audio works correctly, but MIDI can not be
configured correctly. This may be related to bug 26789 (AWE64
Manual config gives the same fault.
opl3.o: init-module: no such device insmod midi failed
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a Sound Blaster 16 in an ISA slot
2.on a text screen (ex: CNTL-ALT-F2) issue sndconfig
3.Ian's voice for audio works normal. Midi fails. Manual config is set to
io=0x220, irq=5, dma=1, dma=5 (I don't think that is used), io=0x330
These parm work on release 7.0
Actual Results: The audio subsystem is not available
Expected Results: Audio output on sound events and when using Gnome
multimedia, 'try it' should play a sound sample.
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

This bug marked as RESOLVED (under the Fisher),
but it still exist under the Wolverine !
It's resolved as a duplicate, which it is. Please refer to the bug that it's
a duplicate of for more info.
It is impossible to query bug 22875. Actual Bugzilla ouput is:
"Permission denied. Sorry; you do not have the permissions
necessary to see bug 22875."
This should be fixed. MIDI configuration by means of 'soundconfig'
fails for ESS1869 based Compaq AudioDrive ISA card too.
Blarg, *someone* decided to reclassify it, after it was *INTENTIONALLY* set
Reopening this while I go beat someone here about the head.
In any case, assigning to kernel. It's still a duplicate of bug 22875, but
as long as that one stays private, we'll leave both open.

This should be worked around in sndconfig-0.64.5-1; although the problem
with the sb driver deactivating the opl3 resources on unload is still
