Description of problem:
(This may or may not be related to Bug 75015. I've entered it as a separate bug
because I don't have any USB device capable of sound input or output.)
When I run redhat-config-soundcard, it detects my card correctly as a SB Live!
EMU10k1. But it says that the module is "disabled". Nothing I can do via
redhat-config-soundcard will activate it.
I assume there is some kind of misdetection going on here, because SB Live! is
listed as being supported on hardware.redhat.com. Although, technically, my
card is an SB Live! Value.
I manually edited /etc/modules.conf to load the emu10k1 driver, and it seems to
I have a USB Scanner and USB Keyboard/Hub, but I do not have a USB audio device
or webcam. (Which is why this may be different from Bug 75015.)
I notice that kudzu seems to have seen the device. Here is a section from
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf; at least, I assume kudzu is what made this file:
desc: "Creative Labs|SB Live! MIDI/Game Port"
Here is the entry from /proc/pci:
Bus 0, device 15, function 0:
Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 8).
Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=2.Max Lat=20.
I/O at 0xb400 [0xb41f].
Bus 0, device 15, function 1:
Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port (rev 8).
Master Capable. Latency=32.
I/O at 0xb000 [0xb007].
There are no other sound card entries in /proc/pci, so if my motherboard (an
Asus A7V266-E) has an on-board sound card, I must've disabled it when I got the
SB Live!. (So this should not be the same as Bug 30677.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RedHat 8 or 9 on this system.
2.Go to redhat-config-soundcard.
Actual Results: Module will be listed as disabled in redhat-config-soundcard.
Sound will be disabled.
Expected Results: Module is configured using the emu10k1 module.
Hmm, my SB Live! works just fine. Here are the contents of my files:
Bus 2, device 8, function 0:
Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 7).
Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=2.Max Lat=20.
I/O at 0xec60 [0xec7f].
Bus 2, device 8, function 1:
Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port (rev 7).
Master Capable. Latency=64.
I/O at 0xec58 [0xec5f].

I don't know why your driver section says "disabled" and mine says "emu10k1".
notting, any ideas why that would happen?
It's a kudzu probing issue interacting with the BIOS, already changed after the
release. Basically, the card doesn't have an interrupt assigned to it until
after the module is loaded. You might be able to twiddle your BIOS to fix this.
Thanks, although I've already manually configured my soundcard, which seems to
have worked fine.
Ok, I'll resolve this as Rawhide since Bill says that a new kudzu fixes the problem.
