Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 89049
ALi M5451 doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-03-27 00:03:11 EDT
Description of problem:
I've installed redhat linux 9 on my laptop toshiba satellite 1805 s274, and
redhat detects a sound card ALi M5451 but fails when tries to load the modules.
Before redhat I was using Mandrake 9 and the sound was working okay. What can I
do to make the sound work?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.test the soundcard detected
I have the same problem. It worked under Red Hat 8 (and 7.). I
reinstalled 8 and noticed that the video driver selected was VESA with a 16 bit
color map. Reh Hat 9 selected a Trident video driver with a 24 bit color map.
Both 8 and 9 selectecd the same sound module. They both share IRQ 11, so I
wonder if there is a conflict?

Found patch that solves problem
I found this bug/patch to the 2.5 kernel:
I applied the patch to drivers/sound/trident.c, built and installed a new
kernel, and now sound works.
Is this patch going to be incorporated into an kernel update for RH9? If it's
coming out soonish, I won't bother recompiling.
I will put up a kernel soonish; need to merge other stuff too
