Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 97707
redhat-config-soundcard doesn't support Sound Blaster 128
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:54:54 EDT
Description of problem:
redhat-config-soundcard finds the correct module correctly, but I can't hear the
test sound. It also says "The es1371 driver could not be loaded. This soundcard
may not be compatible with Red Hat Linux"
But after I typed "modprobe es1371" as root, sounds worked well.
Also, sndconfig finds it correctly, so, I suppose this is a bug in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Get a SB128 and plug it in, then install RH9 and run redhat-config-soundcard
Steps to Reproduce:
Can't get sounds to work
Should get sounds to work
Is it possible that you didn't hear the sound because the speaker volume was too
low? I have a SoundBlaster 128 in my machine and it works just fine with
redhat-config-soundcard. As you said, the es1371 driver works fine too.
I have the same sound card and I can't hear sound. I can hear sound
from the Line input and from CD, but not PCM sound nor MIDI. I haven't
tested with a microphone.
With RedHat 9, the same module (ES1371) was detected and sound worked
Fernando: it sounds like you are seeing a different problem. You
should file a new bug against the kernel if the driver from RHL 9
worked but the one from FC1 does not.
roskaposti_tanne: Have you had any more luck with this issue?
Closing due to lack of activity.
