Description Need Real Name 2001-11-14 00:07:37 EST
Description of Problem:
ERROR: No Sound Modules Found

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login
2. su
3. /sbin/sndconfig

Actual Results:
soundcore.o was not found in the module search path

Expected Results:
Working sound

Additional Information:
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.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-14 00:13:05 EST
Did you set CONFIG_SOUND=Y in your kernel config?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-11-14 15:31:17 EST
Yes config_sound=y
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-11-14 17:59:20 EST
Booting the computer often hangs when loading PCMCIA
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2001-11-14 19:13:42 EST
opl3sa2: not setting ymode, it must be one of 0,1,2,3
opl3sa2: not setting loopback, it must be either 0 or 1
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2001-11-15 12:10:44 EST
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?
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-15 12:26:06 EST
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
the kernel.
Comment 7 Need Real Name 2001-11-15 15:04:58 EST
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?
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2001-11-16 20:29:35 EST
Fixed that too by recompiling as a module.  Apperently this release kernel 
still has a few "bugs" in it.  Thanks for all the help.
