After rebooting back into the 2.6.20 kernel, there still was no sound output.

I powered off, then flipped the master power switch at the back of my machine off.
I flipped this switch on again, hit power, then booted into the 2.6.20 kernel. 
Now the sound is working again.

I have had to use this total poweroff routine in the past.  Even on a pre-2.6.22
kernel sound would fail to work once every few months.  I suspect the audio
hardware is not being properly initialized by the driver.

(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)


I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.

I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!

Comment 4 Jon Stanley 2008-02-08 04:24:16 UTC
Per the previous comment in this bug, I am closing it as INSUFFICIENT_DATA,
since no information has been lodged for over 30 days.

Please re-open this bug or file a new one if you can provide the requested data,
and thanks for filing the original report!
