Description of problem:
When I installed, the system was successful in testing and playing my sound
card. Since rebooting, I can not get any sound. When I run System Settings ->
Soundcard Detection, it displays the wrong manufacturer/model for my card.
How can I force the manufacturer/model for my card?
Compaq Evo N610c, SoundMAX chip set.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run System Settings -> Soundcard Detection
Actual Results: wrong card identified / chosen. No sound.
Expected Results: I expected sound. It worked once right after installation.
This seems to be related with bug 92229
What does it say for the mfr/model of the card?
On linux, the sound card was detected as "Intel 82801BA/BAM" and is
using the module: i810_audio.
The kernel version is: 2.4.20-20.9.
It works fine under windows. Windows detects the card as:
"SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio.
Manufactured by Analog Devices Inc."
It's being detected correctly. If it's not working, that's a driver
