Description of problem:
first of all I was not really sure if this bug belonged in kernel or kudzu or
somewhere else, so here goes...
When I perform a task requireing my sound card module, it's usually loaded
automatically, however in the Limbo kernel(limbo2) that only partially happens...
on my RH 7.3 performing "playwave /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Statup.wav", results in
the loading of cs4232, ad1848, soundcore and sound modules.
The same command in limbo loads all the modules from above, with the exception
of cs4232, resulting in an error like this:
ad1848: ISAPnP reports 'WSS/SB' at i/o 0x534, irq 5, dma 1,3
Couldn't open audio: No available audio device
(uhm - and no sound is heard)
if I modprobe cs4232 myself and attempts the above command again, everything
works like a charm
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. from freshly booted machine, run "playwave /path/to/some/wavefile.wav"
2. watch the output and listen to the missing sound ;-)
Actual Results: no sound - and an error occurs
Expected Results: sound - and no errors
What does /etc/modules.conf look like?
Can you post your /proc/isapnp?

my /proc/isapnp for you :o)
What happens if you change the entry in /etc/modules.conf from ad1848 to cs4232?
The change to /etc/modules.conf makes everything work like it's supposed to...
I have a similar case with an cs46xx.o card (PCI) in a laptop... I looked in the
/etc/modules.conf for that machine, but found no statement for the soundcard al
all... Is that the same case or will I need to make an additional bugzilla
incident on that one?
By the way, this is still an issue with (null)
small adjustment... actually the cs46xx.o issue is fixed in (null) so never mind
Still have the problem with my isapnp cs4232 device though!
i'm wondering wether or not this has been fixed in the final release of 8.0 -
i'm guessing no!
moving to RHL 8.0 - problem still there...
also I'm taking the liberty to move the bug to kudzu, as it seems, that really
more the problem component that the kernel (either that or hwdata)
No, it is a kernel issue. The ad1848 claims a device it does not support.
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files, please follow the link below. You may reopen
this bug report if the solution does not work for you.
Doesn't work - I applied all errata both kernel and hwdata - removed the sound
related entries from /etc/modules.conf and the sound card related sections from
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf and ran kudzu - still the ad1848 module is put in
/etc/modules.conf and it doesn't work unless I change it manually to cs4232
any news on this one???
I see this on my machine too. (Latest phoebe beta).
Alex, does your /proc/isapnp match?
Argh, i didn't even see this until now!
Exact same problem; sound-slot-1 is aliased to ad1848 which does not work...
replacing ad1848 with cs4232 and rmmod ad1848(or reboot) makes the sound work!
I'm sliding this problem to Phoebe, as it's obviously still spooking!

my /proc/isapnp file (Phoebe .93 version)
(i decided not to make the old file obsolete, know you know)
The /proc/isapnp file in the Phoebe .93 kernel differs slightly from the old
one so here you are!
Mine is identical to the last one tmus attached.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
