Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80381
unable to config the sound card
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:33:09 EDT
Description of problem:
sndconfig tries to configure the sound card (Ess Es1869 isa card) which is done
correctly in redhat 7.3.
when I reboot first time after installing redhat 7.3 kudzu detected the card as
an isa one
but no redhat 8.0
I ran sndconfig, It founds the card
but nothing is heard
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
My problem is almost the same as bug 80381. Sound configuration detects my sound
card (ensonique 1371 audio PCI97) but never plays a sound. I know the speakers
are set up because I also run Windows and get sound there. I've run a number of
tests and installed sndconfig-0.69-1 i386. I checked etc/modules.config and see
the entry "alias sound-slot-0 es1371". At Red Hat's suggestion, I ran
/bin/aumix-minimal -l R and still don't get sound.
Finally I solved the problem,
install the sndconfig which it seems to not installed directly as in the
and run the program or the setup;
Normally it works, if, at least, it was worked with the previous version.
sndconfig isn't installed by default in 8.0 or later. ASs long as it works OK
when it's installed, I'd consider this not a bug.
