Description Mark Polo 2008-02-28 10:08:10 EST
Description of problem:
I previously had a working system on FC7.x86_64. Because the computer is being
used primarily for multimedia purposes, I upgraded to FC8.i386 (to avoid codec
problems). But now I can't get the stupid audio card to detect. An identical
computer running FC8.x86_64 works correctly, and I don't have anything special
in modprobe.conf there.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-soundcard-2.0.6-11.fc8


How reproducible:
Install FC8.i386 in a Fujitsu-Siemens ESPRIMO (AMD-64).

  
Actual results:
No sound

Expected results:
Sound

Additional info:
modprobe.conf
alias eth0 r8169
alias scsi_hostadapter libata
alias scsi_hostadapter1 pata_sis
alias scsi_hostadapter2 sata_sis
alias scsi_hostadapter3 usb-storage
alias snd-card-1 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-1 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0

The Conexant thing is a TV-Tuner card, which I am not currently trying to get
working.

Remove those lines from /etc/modprobe.conf and reboot the box:

alias snd-card-1 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-1 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0

Thank you. Now I really feel embarrassed for spending an hour trying to tweak
things to get it to work... It works fine now.
