Description of problem:
When I log in I get the follwing x dialog box.

The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

When I run sound config it detects my card o.k.

Comment 1 Torsten Schuetze 2002-07-18 06:39:12 UTC
Same problem here, sound is broken in 2.4.18-5,
/proc/pci says:
Bus  0, device  17, function  5:
    Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233 AC97 Audio
Controller (rev 16).
      IRQ 5.
      I/O at 0x1000 [0x10ff].

I get the same error messages, even when I recompile the kernel.

Comment 2 Paul Gear 2002-10-05 10:36:26 UTC
This sounds like another duplicate of 54905.  It is still broken in 8.0.
