Description Joachim Frieben 2002-08-20 21:06:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809 Description of problem: Does not detect the on-board CS4236 sound system of my PR440FX based dual Pentium Pro workstation. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.9.9-3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch "redhat-config-soundcard". Actual Results: The message "No soundcards were detected" is issued. Expected Results: "redhat-config-soundcard" should detect and configure the CS4236 sound chip correctly. Additional info: After installing "sndconfig-0.68-4", the latter detects the CS4236 sound chip immediately and produces a functional "/etc/modules.conf" file.
Comment 1 Dr. Peter Boy 2002-08-23 09:39:44 UTC
Same problem here with a cs 4232 During installation the card seems to be miss-identified. In modules.conf you find right after installation: alias sound-slot-1 ad1848 post-install sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || : pre-remove sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || : and nothing else regarding sound. Good old sndconfig of beta null (sndconfig-0.68-4) detects the card and configures it . modules.conf afterwards: alias sound-slot-0 cs4232 post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || : pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || : options sound dmabuf=1 alias synth0 opl3 options opl3 io=0x388 options cs4232 isapnp=1 /proc/isapnp just after installation finished: Card 1 'CSCe825:Crystal Audio' PnP version 1.0 Product version 0.1 Logical device 0 'CSC0100:WSS/SB' Device is not active # ## (because driver not loaded) Resources 0 Priority preferred Port 0x534-0x534, align 0x3, size 0x4, 16-bit address decoding Port 0x388-0x388, align 0x7, size 0x4, 16-bit address decoding Port 0x220-0x220, align 0x1f, size 0x10, 16-bit address decoding IRQ 5 High-Edge DMA 1 8-bit byte-count compatible DMA 0,3 8-bit byte-count compatible Alternate resources 0:1 ......

Comment 2 Peter van Egdom 2002-08-29 19:57:52 UTC
A similar situation here. I've got a Creative SB AWE64 Gold (ISA card) in a Red Hat Linux 'null' machine here. "redhat-config-soundcard" didn't find it ('no soundcards were detected'). "sndconfig" did find the card. After some questions the following modules were inserted by sndconfig : awe_wave 170912 0 (unused) sb 9332 0 sb_lib 44526 0 [sb] uart401 8452 0 [sb_lib] sound 73780 0 [awe_wave sb_lib uart401] soundcore 6500 6 [sb_lib sound] On previous installations - e.g. Red Hat Linux 7.3 - sound always worked without any trouble.
Comment 3 Peter van Egdom 2002-08-29 19:59:49 UTC
(forgot to mention : tried "redhat-config-soundcard-1.0.1-1")

I've got a dell latitude Cpi D300 XT, sndconfig on RH7.3 and null, don't find the sound card, but suggest using soundblaster. I also installed sndconfig and got it working on the beta version by accepting soundblaster.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2002-11-22 18:01:55 UTC
Right, sndconfig had the ability to handle some ISA cards, while redhat-config-soundcard only handles PCI cards at the moment. I don't have any current plans to handle ISA cards in redhat-config-soundcard. Deferring.

Comment 10 Aric Blumer 2002-11-25 13:52:30 UTC
Only handling PCI cards? One of Linux's strong points is its use on older machines. Windows supports these sound cards seamlessly--in order to compete, you do, too. (BTW, my dell machine that exhibits this problem is not that old.)
Comment 11 Aric Blumer 2002-11-25 15:50:13 UTC
One more thing that needs to be added here. This is more than a configuration problem. You cannot control the volume either with the gnome-volume-control app, even after you configure it with the TUI app.
Comment 12 Brent Fox 2002-11-26 16:19:21 UTC
aric, I'm not saying that redhat-config-soundcard will never support ISA cards. I'm just trying to be honest about what I can realistically accomplish in the time between now and the next release. I can't explain why the gnome-volume-control doesn't work for you. I don't think that has to do with redhat-config-soundcard, however.

Comment 15 Cliff Olmsted 2003-01-06 12:26:25 UTC
Just my $0.02, I just installed 8.0 and it failed to configure my SB16 ISA card! IMO this really needs to be fixed...my Mom would never have found the solution to this problem :) Seriously, can a work around using sndconfig during initial install be created as a temporary kludge until redhat-config-soundcard is up to snuff?
Comment 16 Brent Fox 2003-01-14 22:34:38 UTC
snconfig is there if you want to run it. Or at least it should be.
