Description bruno diaz 2003-04-16 17:40:23 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):


How reproducible:
use sndconfig

Steps to Reproduce:
1.test the soundcard detected

Actual results:
no sound

Expected results:
sound

I have the same problem.  It worked under Red Hat 8 (and 7.[123]).  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:

    http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=375

I applied the patch to drivers/sound/trident.c, built and installed a new
kernel, and now sound works.
Comment 3 David Sterratt 2003-04-28 08:42:10 EDT
Is this patch going to be incorporated into an kernel update for RH9?  If it's
coming out soonish, I won't bother recompiling.  
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-30 09:03:12 EDT
I will put up a kernel soonish; need to merge other stuff too
