Last modified: 2008-06-17 05:30:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.2 beta
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install
2. Try to configure sound device
3. Enjoy the silence
Actual results: Failure
Expected results: Test sound
Additional info: Audio configuration displays sound device as an Intel ICH9
82801I card but there is no sound generated. Also, the PCM device field is blank.

Merged scsconfig.log and scsrun.log
The log contains message "Too many connections". The audio codec failed to
initalize. From subsystem PCI ID, it's a system with a Realtek HDA codec.
Today I compiled and installed alsa drivers version 1.0.16, and now the sound
works! So, the solution is an upgrade to the latest alsa verision, or a
corresponding backport. I enclose the new scsconfig.log file.

scsconfig.log files with alsa drivers 1.0.16
Please, attach output or URL from alsa-info.sh script to get codec information
(when working ALSA 1.0.16 is active).
Unfortunately, the machine in question has been reinstalled with CentOS 5.1.
However, the sound card problem is the same. I therefore ran the alsa-info.sh
script which was uploaded to http://pastebin.ca/979666 I hope this helps.

Because we lost test machine, I mark this bug as insufficient data.
