Description of problem:
After installing and booting into the newly updated kernel-2.4.18-24.8.0, no
sound can be produced through either ESD or OSS.  I have an on-board sound card
82801AA AC'97.  I haven't had any problem with it in any other version/kernel of
Red Hat Linux including Phoebie.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into kernel-2.4.18-24.8.0
2. Open any program that produces sound via ESD or OSS

Actual Results:  No sound can be heard or the app gives error message about the
output  device.

Expected Results:  Sound should be produced.

Additional info:

I haven't tried arts.

I am having the same problem on RH 8 as well. Selecting a previous kernel on 
the GRUB bootup screen will bring sound back.

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/
