Description Wade Minter 2001-07-03 12:34:31 EDT
Description of Problem:
The sound card on my laptop (Compaq Armada M700) was not detected or
configured during the install.

Post-install, sndconfig finds the card as a "Model: ESS Technology|ESS1978
Maestro 2E", and configures it without a hitch.

Expected Results:
Supported cards should be configured during the install.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-05 11:40:24 EDT
We run kudzu in the post-install of the install process, and kudzu should have
confired it then.

Any ideas Bill?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-05 22:49:23 EDT
lspci output?

Is kudzu *still* run in the post install?

Did the -BOOT kernel match the installed kernel?

This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.

Does this still happen with beta2?
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-01 11:41:15 EDT
(or beta3, for that matter...)
Comment 7 Wade Minter 2001-08-02 14:38:18 EDT
Confirmed working on my laptop for Beta-3.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-02 15:22:14 EDT
Closing as resolved, then.
