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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
