Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54464
Audio Excel AV310 ISAPnP detected but misconfigured
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:23:44 EDT
Description of Problem:
kudzu detects this sound card, which is an ISA Audio Excel PnP card,
using the CMI8330 chipset. When it goes to configure it, I presume
it is calling sndconfig, which fails to automatically PnP the card.
The result is inability to configure this sound card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
stock 7.1 sndconfig
How Reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hardware
2. Run kudzu
3. follow kudzu steps
invalid parameter parm_isapnp
I presume the program keeps this stuff internally with parm_ prepended,
and it is forgetting to strip the parm_ off. Running modprobe manually
from the commandline with "modprobe ad1848 isapnp" resulted in the module
loading. I played back a test wav file and it works fine. So sndconfig
is calling modprobe incorrectly near as I can tell.
I'm going to upgrade sndconfig to the one from 7.2 now and see if it
Properly configured sound card.
Each year thousands die from lung cancer. Smoking is bad.
Upgraded to latest kudzu and sndconfig, and the card is still not
properly detected. Again, the card works if I modprobe it manually
I don't think ISA soundcards are even supported anymore in current development,
so no sense tracking this bug anymore, as it's unlikely to be fixed in old
releases if it isn't already. Doesn't matter to me anymore, as I don't use
that soundcard anymore anyway.
