Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 301561
Automatic detection of the sound card did not work anymore
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
I started a fresh install of the Fedora 7. During the install process, my sound
card, a Silicon AC'97, was properly detected and set up, i.e., I heard the
melody after using the "play" button.
Once the Fedora completly installed, I installed some packages, including XMMS
and audio-convert-mod. I then converted a few MP3 to Ogg and used XMMS to play
them: everything was just fine.
For now, XMMS refuse to play the same Ogg files with a "Couldn't open audio"
Going to the "Audio configuration" panel and using the "sound test" section of
the first selected card (Integrated Systems [SiS] AC'97 Sound Controller) don't
let me hear anything. So after clicking No, I get the message :
Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. This audio device will not
be available on the system.
And here I am :)
Using XMMS to play a Ogg file: Couldn't open audio
Using the "Sound test": Automatic detection of the sound card did not work.
This audio device will not be available on the system.
In both cases, something should be heard.
The problem persist accross reboots and is systematic.

This morning, sound is ok. So I was wrong when I said the problem is systematic.

It's caused by your USB sound device when is plugged during boot. You can try to
rewrite your configuration files (in system-config-soundcard).
A motherboard problem? Anyway, it seems to solve.
No, driver for your sound-card was not loaded because the it was blocked by USB
driver. There's a for for that in the latest system-config-soundcard in F8.
Closing as rawhide...
