Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 56226
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:16 EDT
Description of Problem:
ERROR: No Sound Modules Found
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
soundcore.o was not found in the module search path
The default install would allow the proper soundcard to be selected.
However, after a re-compile of the kernel the tool displayed the error.
There is no documentation on how to add module paths.
Did you set CONFIG_SOUND=Y in your kernel config?
Booting the computer often hangs when loading PCMCIA
opl3sa2: not setting ymode, it must be one of 0,1,2,3
opl3sa2: not setting loopback, it must be either 0 or 1
Fixed by adding necessary kernel perameters to /etc/grub.conf
Sound system (built into kernel) is detected however it does not work
Is the kernel defunct?
Ah, if CONFIG_SOUND=y, then soundcore.o won't be a module, so you'll get that
error from sndconfig. It's really designed to work with the config of the
kernels we ship.
If it doesn't work built-in with the correct parameters, that does sound like a
kernel bug, yes. Note that if it's an ISAPnP card that isn't detected by the
kernel's PnP support, it's impossible for it to work compiled statically into
OK. I got sound working by compiling as a module. However, I get a strange
message that says:
hdc: ide_cdrom_setup failed to register device
What could be happening here?
Fixed that too by recompiling as a module. Apperently this release kernel
still has a few "bugs" in it. Thanks for all the help.
