Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Fedora Project Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by RahulSundaram:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/Kernel?action=diff&rev2=105&rev1=104

The comment on the change is:
I think this fits here better

<Karsten>
I considered putting it here, but then I thought, "Where would someone
who is wondering about support for a sound card look:  Multimedia or
Kernel?"  Now, we who know Linux know that a sound card requires a
kernel module, etc.  But is that how an ISA sound card user is going to
think about it?  To be honest, I actually expect most folks would look
for "Is my sound card supported?" under something such as "hardware",
"sound cards", or "multimedia".

What do the rest of you think?
</Karsten>

  Refer to http://kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/lkml/reporting-bugs.html for
information on reporting bugs in the Linux kernel.  You may also use
http://bugzilla.redhat.com for reporting bugs that are specific to
Fedora. 
  
  === Preparing for Kernel Development ===
  
  Fedora [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] does not include the
kernel-source package provided by older versions since only the
kernel-devel package is required now to build external modules.
Configured sources are available, as described in the kernel flavors
section.
  
  [[Admonition("important", "Custom Kernel Building", "For information
on kernel development and working with custom kernels, refer to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/CustomKernel.";)]]
  
+ === ISA Sound Cards ===
+ 
+ The kernel in Fedora 7 no longer loads modules by default for ISA 
+ sound cards.  Load the module by hand {{{modprobe module-name}}} or by
+ putting an entry in `/etc/modprobe.conf`.  For example, for the
+ Creative SoundBlaster AWE64:
+ 
+ {{{install snd-sbawe
+ }}}
