FC2T3 audio problems with Inspiron 3200



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I normally run RH8 on my laptop, but I have a spare HD
for it and decided to try run Fedora.

This version has worked well, except for audio which has
been a continuing headache for me under Linux.

The sound chip is the CS4237b

Note that not BIOS changes have been made between these
settings.

The sound works under Win98.   Relevent Device Manager
output shows"
  Class: Sound, video and game controllers
  Device: Crystal PnP Audio System Control Registers
  Resources:
      I/O: 0F00h-0F07h
  Device: Crystal PnP audio system CODEC
      IRQ: 05
      I/O: 0530h-0537h
      I/O: 0388h-038Bh
      I/O: 0220h-022Fh
      DMA: 00
      DMA:01

Sound works on RH8, but I had to buy the non-free OSS sound driver
to get it to work.

the devices.cfg file:
  -gen4237 #Generic Crystal CS4237 based soundcard or motherboard (non PnP)
  CS4232MPU ON P330 I9
  CS423X ON P530 I5 D0 d1
  OPL3 ON P388


I copied some of the work getting sound to work that appears in this list
and customized it to fit.

the /etc/modprobe.conf file:

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116*	snd
alias snd-card-0	snd-cs4236
options snd-cs4236	cport=0xf00 port=0x530 irq=5 fm_port=0x388 dma1=0 dma2=1 
sb_port=0x220 mpu_port=0x330 mpu_irq=9

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14* soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

install snd-card-0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-card-0 && { 
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }
remove snd-card-0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }; 
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove

install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install sound-slot-0 && { 
/bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }
remove sound-slot-0 { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >>/dev/null 2>&1 
|| :; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove


This is what happens:

modprobe snd-card-0

The same message shows up if I just boot up to telinit level 3 or 5.

Any ideas?
