Description Aric Blumer 2002-10-03 18:35:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
I have a Crystal Audio sound card. Output from /proc/isapnp: "Card 1
'CSC6835:CS4236B' PnP version 1.0 Product version 0.1" This card is not properly
detected by the gnome sound card detection program nor does the gnome volume
control work.



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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run the Redhat->System Setting->Soundcard Detection menu item.
2.Run sndconfig to correctly detect the sound card.
3.Then run the Redhat->Sound & Video->Volume Control menu item.
	

Actual Results:  The sound card detection program simply says that there is no
sound card detected.

The volume program fails with an error: "An error occurred while loading or
saving configuration information for gnome-volume-control. Some of your
configuration settings may not work properly." When I click on details, it says
this:
  Bad key or directory name:
 "/apps/gnome-volume-control/OSS-Crystal_audio_controller_(CS423-1/vol": `(' is
an invalid character in key/directory names


Expected Results:  The sound card should have been detected, and the volume
control should work.

Additional info:

The sound card worked just fine in RedHat Linux 7.3, and I got it to work in
RH8.0 using sndconfig (the text version).  aumix-minimal also controls the
volume just fine, so this is a problem in the GUI apps.

I have the excat same problem with an Opti 16 sound card that was detected 
perfectly in v7.3

Comment 2 Guido 2002-10-23 18:47:03 UTC
I have a AW35/Pro sound card with Crystal CS4232 chipset.

I have the same problem described ubove, but the output from /proc/isapnp is 
quite different (see the following text).

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 72045 ***

Comment 4 Guido 2002-11-25 07:13:47 UTC
So, after reading bug 75014, I understand that the problem is in redhat-config-
soundcard, but:

- no solution is provided in redhat;
- no suggest is given for other possible solutions.

Very, very well...



Comment 5 Brent Fox 2002-11-26 16:14:18 UTC
guidorocca, you should be able to use sndconfig to configure your ISA soundcard.
 I apologize for any misunderstanding, but redhat-config-soundcard currently
only supports PCI soundcards.  

It's not that I don't want to support ISA cards, but I'm trying to be honest
about what I can realistically accomplish in the time between now and the next
release.  As I said, sndconfig should configure most ISA cards properly.

Comment 6 Guido 2002-12-10 16:42:58 UTC
Sorry, I misunderstood. 

I supposed that redhat-config-soundcard was the only way to get a sound while 
running X.

I have used aumix and now I can hear sounds.

Sorry again

    Guido
