Description Petri T. Koistinen 2002-12-20 17:51:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: I have C-Media Electronics Inc CM8738 soundcard that is integrated on ASUS A7V333 motherboard. It seems that redhat-config-soundcard is able to detect this card, but it will not play test sound. If I run old sndconfig tool it will find this soundcard and it is able play test sound and system work fine after using it. Even redhat-config-soundcard "Play test sound" button works after sndconfig has been used to configure soundcard. So this new soundcard detection system should be working at least as good as old one, before you are going to remove sndconfig. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try to install C-Media Electronics Inc|CM8738 soundcard Actual Results: Installation was not successful with /usr/bin/redhat-config-soundcard, but deprecated /usr/sbin/sndconfig did the job. Expected Results: Replacement should work as good as old configuration tool Additional info: Severity is still low, as long as sndconfig is available. My hardware is quite up to date, so don't blame me for using obsolete hardware.

Hmm, that is strange. We aren't removing sndconfig until redhat-config-soundcard can support ISA cards, which isn't going to happen for this release. redhat-config-soundcard-1.0.2-2 out of Rawhide may fix this problem. I've done a lot of work so that redhat-config-soundcard sets up /etc/modules.conf properly and reloads the modules properly. If you want to test this, install the new version out of Rawhide. Then, remove all the lines related to "sound-slot" from /etc/modules. Then run redhat-config-soundcard and click "Play test sound". I would test this myself, but I don't have your exact soundcard.
Comment 2 Petri T. Koistinen 2002-12-22 16:39:42 UTC
Yep, I removed those things from /etc/modules.conf, rebooted and made sure with xmms that there where not soundcard driver module loaded. Started the new program installed from Rawhide and seems to be working. Thank you! How about releasing errata?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-12-22 17:02:10 UTC
I would like to, but I doubt that it will happen. Most of QA's time is spent on the Advanced Server errata and is pretty much limited to security errata. I'll just point people to Rawhide for now and the next version will be out before too long. :) I'm glad to know that redhat-config-soundcard-1.0.2-2 fixes the problem you were seeing. Thanks for your report. Closing as 'Rawhide'
