Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 349401
AC'97 Audio Controller doesn't work with latest kernel
Last modified: 2008-01-14 03:41:28 EST
Description of problem:
Everything about the sound seems okay. Except that I don't hear anything.
- In alsamixer, everything is on
- In /dev/snd, all devices are present
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel-188.8.131.52-30.fc8 has this problem.
Kernel-184.108.40.206-26.fc8 does not.
Get the same card as I have and try to get sound out of it with the latest kernel.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 235461 [details]
My kernel .config (which worked before)
It does not work with the older kernel either (which did work before). I assume
that alsa was updated while I was installing my computer through kickstart.
Probably caused by pulseaudio. There wre no kernel sound updates.
Try removing these packages, then rebooting:
I did a fresh reinstall of the system. Issue fixed. You could be right, I was
testing some different media players. I installed Xine and Rythmbox. But that's
it... After I reinstalled the system, everything works again... weird. Do you
want to try to reproduce this?
Short intro: I'm a Fedora contributer doing some kernel bug triaging.
Closing since this was fixed by a reinstall. Things like this happen with
rawhide, esp. with the move to pulseaudio no need to reproduce.
