correctly in redhat 7.3.

My problem is almost the same as bug 80381. Sound configuration detects my sound
card (ensonique 1371 audio PCI97) but never plays a sound. I know the speakers
are set up because I also run Windows and get sound there. I've run a number of
tests and installed sndconfig-0.69-1 i386. I checked etc/modules.config and see
the entry "alias sound-slot-0 es1371". At Red Hat's suggestion, I ran
/bin/aumix-minimal -l R and still don't get sound.

Hi frank,
Finally I solved the problem,
install the sndconfig which it seems to not installed directly as in the
previous version.
and run the program or the setup;
Normally it works, if, at least, it was worked with the previous version.


Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-30 06:11:48 UTC
sndconfig isn't installed by default in 8.0 or later. ASs long as it works OK
when it's installed, I'd consider this not a bug.
