Description Tobias Muhlhofer 2003-06-01 06:33:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529

Description of problem:
Sound card: SiS 7018.
Upon booting and logging into an X session or a bash session, no sound is heard.
To fix this, I have to become root and run aumix, change every setting back and
forth, save, and quit. After that, the sound works just fine until I reboot the
next time.

Had the same problem in RH8.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All kernels for RH8 and RH9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot and log in. No sound.
2.Run aumix, change every channel, save, quit.

Actual Results:  No sound upon first bootup.

Expected Results:  Sound.

Additional info:

I'm assuming it's a kernel fault.

No idea how to troubleshoot this: what log files do I need to check, etc.?
Comment 1 Alan Cox 2003-06-05 11:28:06 EDT
Two questions:
Does a specifc setting make the difference
What kind of sound card is it (or attach lspci -v if you are not sure)

The output from lspci -v
Comment 3 Tobias Muhlhofer 2003-06-05 17:09:20 EDT
OK, I attached the output from lspci -v.

I tried each setting in aumix. Here's the deal:

If I change the Vol adjustment bash starts beeping (it didn't until then).
When I change the Pcm adjustment the sounds in X work as well (they didn't with
only Vol).

Comment 4 Tobias Muhlhofer 2003-06-05 17:18:42 EDT
Turns out, no other setting makes a difference, alone or in combination. Just
those two as described above.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
