Description Jean-Philippe Jung 2001-11-28 19:50:46 UTC
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
/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/sound/cs4232.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/sound/cs4232.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/sound/cs4232.o: insmod

NMI:    0

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.

Dear Jean-Philippe,
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
Request Updated"

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 soundcore
modprobe sound
modprobe ad1848
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"

and got:

Steffen Technician Response
Dear Jean-Philippe,
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

How Reproducible:
Every time.

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)

Actual Results:
insmod fails, no sound.

Expected Results:
insmod success, sound :-)

Is there anything for your card in /proc/isapnp?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-22 23:05:55 UTC
closing, lack of response
