well, i have a gateway solo 2500 and the sound doesn't configure properly.
it used to on the old redhats, and in other distributions i can load it as
a module seperately
i use the following command to load the module for other distros (like
modprobe opl3sa2 io=0x220 mss_io=0x530 mpu_io=0x330 irq=5 dma=0 dma2=1
i used to be able to use sndconfig to set it up but it doesn't work now. I
have tried modprobing that, even recompiling the kernel with different
options. It has always been an opl3sa2.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. simply try to configure the opl3sa2
2. try to use audio
Actual Results: the gnome sound manager won't work....neither will other
sound configuration devices
Expected Results: sound should work
What happens if you add 'isapnp=0' to the end of the options?
good call, now, i actually don't even have the io=0x220, its io=0x370(the
default in sndconfig), i just had to add isapnp=0 to the end of the options for
opl3sa2 in modules.conf
so here is the line
options opl3sa2 mss_io=0x530 irq=5 dma=0 dma2=1 mpu_io=0x330 io=0x370 isapnp=0
And that works fine? Good.
Out of curiosity, if you don't have an options line in modules.conf,
and just do 'modprobe opl3sa2 isapnp=1'; does that work?
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
well, i'm not sure what i should do, b/c you have released a second beta, and
it still doesn't work. heres the deal, it doesn't work in either beta when i
add the isapnp=1
as far as kernel compatibility--alan has made some changes to the opl3sa2
module adding information on the isapnp issue. as far as i could tell, all it
did was totally break sound support (this was in an ac patch)
in wolverine i have had more trouble with sound, it doesn't add the stuff to
modules.conf it used to, and so it makes it kind of a pain to get sound to
run. but the same still stands true. isapnp=0 has to be appended to the
options line (the same as i have above) and isapnp=1 with nothing else says "no
pnp cards found" or something like that
Is this a notebook with a Neomagic chipset? This looks a lot like a duplicate of
