Re: ide-scsi & sound under the 2.6.3 kernel

Hi,

I have two sound cards in my machine. They work fine under the 2.6.2
kernel, but under the 2.6.3, I have to /sbin/modprobe soundcore and
then /sbin/modprobe snd-es1371

I've altered /etc/modules.conf to read

The 2.6 kernel loads these through /etc/modprobe.conf


I believe the modules need put in there.

Also, system-config-soundcard seems to be showing signs of life. There were a couple of glitches when I tried it. It might be working for you now.

Another point is that oss drivers were disabled in the later 2.6 kernels. Alsa drivers are used instead.

A little aid to the ac 97 should be lines is the below. I have no idea about the es1371 card, except I seem to remenber something about the module entry what kudzu (hwdata information) disagree by different numer order.

(Never mind the posting for accuracy. When I examined the file, there were many postings of a line over and over again. I assume this was when I ran *system-config-soundcard* a few times and it locked up.)

I assume that one instance of the
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 ||:


is all that should be referenced. It pushed
*alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0*
 down quite a bit, within the file.

Which didn't do the job. I don't want my wife to be messing about having
to load sound drivers etc. Is there a way that I can get Fedora to
autoload my sound modules?

Secondly, I am unable to use xcdroast, k3b or gtoaster.

I used to have hdc, hdd and hdf loaded up using ide-scsi. Now when I've
read the docs, it seems that ide-scsi has been deprecated, if not done
away with.. My current grubline removes these drives as being ide-scsi
ones. When they were on as ide-scsi, no drives were picked up.

I had the same issue when no reference to ide-scsi was in the grub.conf file. I did not see any cdrom drives either. I added "ide-cd" for both of my cdrom drives and was able to burn cdroms in Fedora core 2.


I passed this point on the fedora-list and the kernel was supposed to be smart enough to do the right thing. Mine isn't, maybe it is Selinux.



All of my drives are recognised by the software, but I cannot record using any device. gtoaster reports the /dev/sg* are unavailable while k3b reports a mkisofs problem.

Is /dev/sg* referenced by /dev/cdwriter symlink? Mine points to the below.


ls -la /dev/cdwriter
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 8 Jan 24 13:28 /dev/cdwriter -> /dev/sg0

The /boot/grub/grub.conf for the installation that I burned an iso with is pasted below.

title Fedora Core (2.6.3-1.97)
        root (hd1,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.3-1.97 ro root=LABEL=/ acpi=on hdc=ide-cd hdd=ide-cd 3
        initrd /initrd-2.6.3-1.97.img

(hdd=ide-cd wrapped, is on one line)

I'm using dvdrecord-0.1.4-5, cdrecord-2.01-0.a25.3, gtoaster-1.0beta6-6, k3b 0.11 (from source), xcdroast 0.98a15-2, mkisofs-2.01-0.a25.3


I haven't tried to burn a dvd yet. hdd is my dvd burner. I'll have to try to use this program later.


Any help or advice would be appreciated.


Maybe helpful, but free advice, anyway!


Jim
