Description Yang, Libin 2008-08-15 06:11:26 UTC
The latest release does not support some ATI cards' HDMI function.

The below patch is to support more HDMI Audio for RHEL 5.3. The original patch has been accepted by ALSA. http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-kernel.git;a=blobdiff;f=sound/pci/hda/hda_intel.c;h=a73d6ca0a90655104c48b7ea50b4089815de5b70;hp=ef9f072b47fcc65749729d22fa8e1390c1f8a8de;hb=45fc3c4d9b7ab12798af43a73aea53eeecd16acf;hpb=96348852cf8ff5597a39e866838679b3a9a38947

Added "blocks BZ 364381". Added keywords.

Comment 6 Shane Huang 2008-09-11 02:12:20 UTC
We confirmed that kernel source 2.6.18-107 includes the device ID. Thanks.
Actual test will be started only when HW is available in the future,
after that the status will be changed into "VERIFIED".

~~ Snapshot 3 is now available ~~ 

Snapshot 3 is now available for Partner Testing, which should contain a fix that resolves this bug. ISO's available as usual at ftp://partners.redhat.com. Your testing feedback is vital! Please let us know if you encounter any NEW issues (file a new bug) or if you have VERIFIED the fix is present and functioning as expected (add PartnerVerified Keyword).

Ping your Partner Manager with any additional questions. Thanks!

~~ Attention ~~ Snapshot 4 is now available for testing @ partners.redhat.com ~~

Partners, it is vital that we get your testing feedback on this important bug fix / feature request. If you are unable to test, please clearly indicate this in a comment to this bug or directly with your partner manager. If we do not receive your test feedback, this bug is at risk from being dropped from the release.

If you have VERIFIED the fix, please add PartnerVerified to the Bugzilla Keywords field, along with a description of the test results. 

If you encounter a new bug, CLONE this bug and request from your Partner manager to review. We are no longer excepting new bugs into the release, bar critical regressions.

Comment 13 Chris Ward 2008-12-04 09:32:28 UTC
AMD, what is the current status of this bug fix? The fix should be present in the latest RHEL5.3 Snapshot. Please test and send feedback ASAP.

Comment 14 Shane Huang 2008-12-05 01:44:42 UTC
We have confirmed that the patch has been added to RHEL5 kernels like
2.6.18-125 and 2.6.18-124.
But since the audio HW device is NOT available to us yet, we are NOT able
to test it so far. thanks.

I'm changing the status into VERIFIED, if unfortunately the device can NOT
work in the future , we may create another new BZ.
