Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 74765
kudzu would not load the module for my SB Live sound card.

Description of problem:
I installed Red Hat Linux 8.0 on my workstation. This PC has a SB Live! sound
card in it. Upon booting Red Hat Linux 8.0, firstboot ran. At the sound test
page, it showed that my sound card was a SB Live! sound card, but that the
module was not loaded. Further investigation into /etc/modules.conf did not
list there being a sound card. I rebooted to see if there was any change, but
it still was not "found". I then logged in as root, and manually ran "kudzu"
without any options, and kudzu found both my eepro100 network card and my SB
Live! sound card, and loaded the proper modules, and made the proper entries
This bug might be related to <a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If I had a spare PC with this setup, I would try to reproduce the bug. It was a
clean install, so doing an "upgrade" install probably wouldn't be a very good
Same thing happened here..
firstboot correctly identified the SBLive, but didn't even attempt to load the
00:0f.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 07)
I have the same problem with an SBLive 5.1 card. It appears to be listed
correctly in the hwconf file maintained by kudzu but still the moduel emu10k1
is not loading on boot. I have to modprobe the module to get it to load and
then I have sound.
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please attempt to confirm with more recent releases.
