Description of problem:
I have a Logitech Web Cam Pro 3000 with built-in Mic, and a SB Live! 5.1 X-
Gamer sound card. With the camera attached Sound does not work. Remove the 
camera and the resources become free and sound works. Once the camera is 
removed Kudzu asks you to remove "Unknown", and then everything works normally 
when rebooted. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start machine with Camera attached on a machine with the SB Live! 5.1 X-
Gamer card.


Actual Results:  Unable to use either the camera or hear sound from the machine.

Expected Results:  Should be able to use the web cam and use sound.

Would you believe I can verify this? 

I saw this bug, thought to myself.... yeah just my bloody luck. Tried it and 
woohoo my sound works again! My kudzu came up with 4 unknown devices on reboot 
after removing the webcam and I removed them all. Still no sound after boot but 
this time when I modprobed emu10k1 I got sound this time. Before removing the 
webcam, when I modprobed it I still got no sound.

Eburke, how in hell did you diagnose this problem? Was there a technical savvy 
way to find out what was wrong or just trial and error?

How do I get redhat to load the emu10k1 driver cause it doesnt load on demand 
or by default. I have to modprobe the damn thing to load it.

sndconfig is no longer developed, and this release has reached end-of-life.
Closing out old bugs.
