Description of problem:
Red Hat 7.2 puts a post-install and a pre-remove line in /etc/modules.conf to
set (and save) the mixer when sound is started (usually when first accessed) and
stopped (BTW, great idea).
(BTW, the installer didn't add these lines when I updated one of my machines
from Red Hat 7.0, only on a new install on another machine. Anyway, that's not
the bug that I'm reporting).
The installer uses "sound-slot-0" as the name of the module. But, if I set
RESTORESOUND="yes" on /etc/sysconfig/apmd, the post-install and pre-remove lines
won't be used when the sound modules are removed and re-installed, and the mixer
settings won't be saved (result: no sound after APM resume in my sound chip).
Using sound-slot-0 in SOUNDMODULES= does not work, since apmscript checks if the
module is there before removing it, so it won't find a module called
Solution: use the real module name instead of the alias sound-slot-0. In my case:
post-install i810_audio /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove i810_audio /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install, or upgrade to, Red Hat 7.2
2. Set RESTORESOUND="yes" on /etc/sysconfig/apmd, put module names on SOUNDMODULES=
3. Do an APM suspend and resume. Notice that the mixer settings were not
Actual Results: No sound (at least in my sound chip).
Expected Results: Sound working as it was before APM suspend.
kudzu writes the modules.conf, but apmd is also pulled in... reassigning to
kudzu and cc'ing bero.
