Description d young 2002-12-31 18:22:39 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
I've just installed RHv8.0.  Next, I installed a (new) SB16 PCI sound card.Then
I ran sndconfig to setup/test the sound card.  Everything works ok, the
modules.conf file is configured as shown below...

[doug@localhost etc]$ cat modules.conf
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 tulip
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-0 es1371
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 || :
[doug@localhost etc]$

Here's the problem...after I reboot the system the sound card does not work. I
have to rerun sndconfig to get it working again.

BTW.  When I run the redhat-config-soundcard program I get the following
Vendor - Ensoniq
Model - 5880 AudioPCI
Module - es1371

Expected Results:  Sound card should work after booting system.

Additional info:

I have never been able to get the sound working on this installation of RH.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-01 03:00:05 UTC
Hm, that's a PCI card, so it should work out of the box. Perhaps it's a driver

Comment 2 d young 2003-01-03 17:04:46 UTC
I agree, it should work out of the box.  If it's a driver problem then why would
the soundcard work after I run the sndconfig utility?  Whatever this utility
does to enable the soundcard is needed in the system startup.  Since I'm still a
newbie to Linux I'm struggling to learn the system level programs/procedures.

One there any reason to believe compiling this module into the
kernel would correct the problem?  I really don't think it would help but I'm
not too sure.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
