Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 56851
sndconfig fails to configure CS4236B card in Thinkpad 380Z (2635-HGF)
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:24:31 EDT
Description of Problem:
As root, run sndconfig. PNP detection: "No PnP or PCI sound cards...". In the menu, select "Crystal CS423x sound chip". Manually pass the values I got from Windows 98:
I/O Port=0x530, IRQ=10, DMA1=1, DMA2=0, MPU I/O=0x300, MPU IRQ=9.
I press OK. The screen stays all blue (background screen for Sound
Configuration Utility 0.65.2 for about 5 or 6 seconds then displays: "Sound Card Test", "A sample sound will now be played...". I press OK. The screen stays again all blue for about 5-6 seconds and then displays: "modprobe error"
"The following error occured running the modprobe program:
init_module: No such device
sound-slot-0 failed" Reading a bit more lead me to displaying used resources. cat /proc/ioports
00f0-00ff : fpu
01f0-01f7 : ide0
0300-031f : 3c574_cs
03c0-03df : vga+
03f0-03f5 : floppy
03f6-03f6 : ide0
03f7-03f7 : floppy DIR
03f8-03ff : serial(set)
0cf8-0cff : PCI conf1
1000-10ff : PCI CardBus #01
() And cat /dev/interrupts gave:
0: 155197 XT-PIC timer
1: 1486 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 23478 XT-PIC 3c574_cs
6: 16 XT-PIC floppy
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
11: 0 XT-PIC usb-uhci, Texas Instruments PCI1250, Texas Instruments
12:348 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
14: 15365 XT-PIC ide0
The cat /proc/dma only gave: " 4: cascade".
I tried again with non conflicting settings, several settings. Every time the
sound test starts, I have a 5 to 6 seconds of "wait" before I get same error
message: "modprobe error". At last, I removed all PC cards from the machine and rebooted.
Tried again to load driver: not better.
Opened support ticket 195189 with RedHat support staff. Made me upgrade to latest patch and kernel (2.4.9-13) using up2date. Not better. Finally received this comment:
"Notify Customer with e-mail notification.

you may want to try to load the module with insmod If this doesn't work, could you please file a bug on http://bugzilla.redhat.com
You may want to have a visit to following link as well
and try their driver. Best Regards, Steffen 19-NOV-2001 13:12:42 EST
I then tried: "Hi, I am quite new to Linux and I would appreciate the correct list of commands to issue, regarding my configuration. I made the following:
modprobe uart401 The I try to insert my driver:
insmod cs4232 irq=10 io=0x534 dma=1 dma2=0 mpuio=0x330 mpuirq=9
I played around with parameters, and this does not work: init_module: no such
device. My question is: based on the ressources used by my card under Windows (see
initial post), is this correct? Do I have to pass parameters to the ad1848 and
uart401 drivers? If yes, whhich and how? 28-NOV-2001 05:32:52 EST"

the parameters look correct. I really can not understand why it is not working,
sound on Laptops can be sometimes tricky, you may want to have a look at
http://www.linux-laptops.net and have a look for your model. Nevertheless plase
file this as well as a bug on http://bugzilla.redhat.com so an engineer will
have a closer look at this problem. Thank you in advance. Regards, Steffen 28-NOV-2001 09:56:40 EST"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sound Configuration Utility 0.65.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the machine under Linux RedHat 7.2 with kernel 2.4.9-13
2.Logon as root, switch to INIT 3
3.Run sndconfig and pass correct parameters to the CS4232 driver (correct parameters being parameters that works under Windows 98 - dual boot machine - and that do not conflict with other hardware piece of equipment)
insmod fails, no sound.
insmod success, sound :-)
Is there anything for your card in /proc/isapnp?
closing, lack of response
