Description of problem:
clean fresh install FC4T1 on a powerbook g4 12"
the soundcard is not configured properly while installation and later.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. clean fresh install (text mode)
2. clicking blindely through firstboot (not really readable)
3. kudzu
4. system-config-soundcard

Actual Results:  the entries in hwconf are ok but no sound.

execude `modprobe snd_powermac`
and the sound is ok.
i am lazy, i add it in  /etc/rc.local
and all is ok after reboot.

Expected Results:  sound should work.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-23 01:07:31 UTC
If you remove /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, and run 'kudzu -q', does it configure it?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-25 22:17:09 UTC
Never mind.

Fixed in 0.1.114-1.

Comment 4 shrek-m 2005-04-27 11:21:59 UTC
sorry, there is nothing what is configured now correctly.

# yum -d0 list kudzu
Installed Packages
kudzu.ppc                                1.1.114-1              installed

# mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf .
# kudzu
# kudzu -q

# LANG=C ls /etc/sysconfig/hw*
ls: /etc/sysconfig/hw*: No such file or directory

ok, after rebooting there is a hwconfig with exactly the same class:AUDIO
but nothing in modprobe.conf and no sound.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-27 15:23:38 UTC
Following those steps on my powermac G4, it works for me:

# rm /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
# kudzu
# cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 sungem
alias usb-controller ohci-hcd
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias snd-card-0 snd-powermac
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-powermac index=0
remove snd-powermac { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-powermac

Comment 6 shrek-m 2005-04-27 17:14:24 UTC
sorry, it seems that
 # mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf .
was the culprit.
 # mv hwconf hwconf-old
and following once again your steps are ok now.
