Description d young 2002-12-31 18:22:39 UTC

Description of problem:
I've just installed RHv8.0.  Next, I installed a (new) SB16 PCI sound card.Then
I ran sndconfig to setup/test the sound card.  Everything works ok, the
modules.conf file is configured as shown below...

[doug@localhost etc]$ cat modules.conf
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 tulip
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-0 es1371
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1
|| :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
[doug@localhost etc]$

Here's the problem...after I reboot the system the sound card does not work. I
have to rerun sndconfig to get it working again.

BTW.  When I run the redhat-config-soundcard program I get the following
Vendor - Ensoniq
Model - 5880 AudioPCI
Module - es1371

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.Test sound card - no sound

Actual Results:  No sound through the speakers after a reboot.

Expected Results:  Sound card should work after booting system.

Additional info:

I have never been able to get the sound working on this installation of RH.

Hm, that's a PCI card, so it should work out of the box. Perhaps it's a driver

Comment 2 d young 2003-01-03 17:04:46 UTC
I agree, it should work out of the box.  If it's a driver problem then why would
the soundcard work after I run the sndconfig utility?  Whatever this utility
does to enable the soundcard is needed in the system startup.  Since I'm still a
newbie to Linux I'm struggling to learn the system level programs/procedures.

One question...is there any reason to believe compiling this module into the
kernel would correct the problem?  I really don't think it would help but I'm
not too sure.

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

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
