Description of problem:
Sound does not work well in Fedora 7 with VIA chipset.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Alsa driver: 1.0.14

I, and some friends of a forum who have the same problem, have the 
motherboard: Asus P5VDC-X with a VIA VT8237A southbrigde.

The sound only plays in the right side, while the left plays a high-frequency 
noise or just nothing.
Also when we try to change the volume, all sound disapear until reboot.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
If there is any sound, it's just from the right side.

Expected results:

Additional info:
My system is fully up-to-date.

It looks like a kernel/sound driver problem. Reassignig to kernel.

Anyway - you may report it to ALSA project (www.alsa-project.org).

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.

This is a vmware system which may cause issues with hardware on your system.
Please disable vmware and re-test, attaching a new log.

You can also try adding:

options snd-hda-intel model=3stack

to your /etc/modprobe.conf file which may resolve the issue for you.

Man, I have no words, not even in portuguese.....

It worked... It just worked... 

I find it amazing that only adding a line in a configuration file resolved the
sound problem.

Christopher Brown,
Thank you.
