just noise from my speakers.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Sound Blaster 128 soundcard.

Comment 1 Henrik Karlsson 2003-05-22 17:22:56 UTC
I tried to attach the output of 'lspci -vv' but it did not work.


Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-23 16:17:25 UTC
This configuration would be handled by kudzu.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-23 16:21:11 UTC
Please try again to attach the output of lspci -v. What driver does this card use?

Comment 4 Henrik Karlsson 2003-05-23 17:26:34 UTC

The result of lspci -vv

The only file I have right now is the output of lspci -vv.

Comment 5 Henrik Karlsson 2003-05-23 17:28:05 UTC
I have to check which driver I use, the computer is at home and i'm at work
right now.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-23 18:45:34 UTC
Hm, so, it should probably have put:

alias char-major-81 bttv

in your /etc/modules.conf; I'm presuming from the bug report that it did not.

My modules.conf file

Comment 8 Henrik Karlsson 2003-05-27 14:17:52 UTC
I've attached my modules.conf file. The alias row is in that file but the
tv-sound don't work.

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-27 18:14:45 UTC
What happens if you load the btaudio driver?

Comment 10 Henrik Karlsson 2003-05-29 13:29:41 UTC
I used modprobe to load the btaudio driver but nothing happend. I found some
documentation about the btaudio driver and tried the examples but i did not get
any sound from the tv-card, just noise.

Comment 11 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-23 20:05:02 UTC
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack
of response.

Please test this bug on a current release, such as Fedora Core 4. If it persists
there, please file a new bug.

Realistically, this sounds like a driver problem, not a kudzu problem.
