Description Stephen Lewis 2002-11-25 22:46:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.20-pre10-ac2 i686)

Description of problem:
Running RH7.3 with all latest updates on Dell Latitude CPx J750 and stock kernel
2.4.18-17.7.x.

Sound modules (soundcore, ac94_codec, maestro3i) appear to load OK, but there is
no sound in KDE, only "processor clock" noise from speakers. Reverting to stock
kernel 2.4.18-3 from RH7.3 CD, sound works fine.  Using homebrew
2.4.20-pre10-ac2, compiled with RH i686 .config file for 2.4.18 also works. Both
of these need no changes, other than a reboot. Suspect problem introduced some
time before 2.4.18-17.x, but not sure how far back.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from kernel 2.4.18-17.7.x
2. Login to KDE
3.  
	

Actual Results:  No sound (no errors from sound server either)

Expected Results:  Sound - startup sounds, playing WAV files, etc.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-26 09:58:29 UTC
this got fixed in the 2.4.18-18.7.x erratum, released over a week ago

Comment 2 Stephen Lewis 2002-11-27 07:24:55 UTC
Apologies:
1. Problem did not show up on bugzilla when I searched for it on Monday, but I
can see it now - finger trouble.
2. Errata is released, but has not yet made the up2date service, which I checked
last Friday and again last night.

Sorry

You should be able to see this via RHN, but if not try directly:
