Description of problem:
When I ran redhat-config-soundcard, the pop-up window said "No soundcards were
detected." Sound doesn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.As root, type redhat-config-soundcard
Actual Results: The Creative ViBRA16X PnP card is not detected.
Expected Results: Should have configured the sound card.
The kernel is expecting the sound card to have a 16-bit DMA channel, which
apparently the card does not have. The following messages appeared in

I was able to get the sound card working using sndconfig. It added the following
lines to the /etc/modules.conf file:
options sound dmabuf=1
alias synth0 opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options sb isapnp=1
It's too late for me to address this for this release. Deferring.
