Description of problem:
Sound driver does not work on eMachines laptop with ATI chipset.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I install Fedora 7 or try to debug audio on this laptop.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 7.
2. Test sound.
3. Listen carefully.
The test sound plays.
Laptop is about 4 or 5 years old. Audio worked fine under Windows XP. Logs
from sound setup are attached.
Created attachment 204661 [details]
Archive containing both log files from soundcard failure.
Hm, could be the problem this one?
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:08.0[A] -> Link [LNK7] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
AC'97 1 does not respond - RESET
AC'97 1 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer.
ali mixer 1 creating error.
It looks like a kernel/drivers problem. I recommend you to report it to
ALSA-project (www.alsa-project.org) and attach the log there.
Or feel free to reassign this bug to kernel but I'm not sure kernel guys have
that hardware available.
