Possible solution in ALSA-Configuration.txt

Hi,

Ran into similar problem - although mine was intermittent (sometimes the system boots OK; other times, it reports "VIA 82xx Audio: probe of 0000:00:11.5 failed with error -12" in /var/log/messages. Found relief from info in ALSA-Configuration.txt of the alsa-driver-1.0.13.tar.bz2 distribution, under the heading "Module Autoloading Support". Added the following lines in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf:
# ALSA portion
options snd cards_limit=2
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
alias snd-card-1 cx88-alsa
options snd-via82xx index=0
options cx88-alsa index=1
# OSS/Free portion
alias sound-slot-0 snd-via82xx
alias sound-slot-1 cx88-alsa

That seemed to fix the problem for me. Hope this helps with yours.

Note, my configuration:

Question Huh...

Greetings!

I am running into the same problem myself. Mine, too, is intermittent. The situation with me is that I have a dual-boot system with Microsoft Windows (for work) and Fedora 7 (for personal). What I have noticed, tonight, is that if I boot into Windows first, do my thing there, and then boot into Fedora 7, my Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 sound card does not work in Linux. However, if I just turn my computer off and turn it back on after 30 seconds, and boot into Fedora 7, the sound card works. I do not understand why this is the case... the only logical thing I can think of is an address problem that remains in memory when booting from Windows to Linux (probably not a good conclusion, but it is the only thing I can think of as to why this is happening). I know that it has something to do with my TV card (MSI TV@nyware) because when I took it out, my sound card works just fine.

PuffServe gave me an idea where to look for settings; the problem is that the file no longer is in Fedora 7. However, I modified the /etc/modprobe.conf file and moved my sound card up. This modification made my sound card the default card. (I also have a [built-in the motherboard] VIA sound card in there and it is disabled in the BIOS, but Fedora 7 [oddly] still sees it.)

Also, there is this post on FedoraForum that points out the same issue as we are having. One guy even mentions this:

Quote:
And this is something new with FC5. Never had any problems with FC4. This box also has SUSE 10.0 and Mandriva 2005 LE on it. No problems there either.
I personally love using Fedora (based on my personal experience and tastes, Fedora has been the best distribution for me, [looking forward to Fedora 8]), and I would hate to change over to a new distribution just to get something to work. I will try other distributions and see what happens. I have already tried OpenSUSE and I am not a fan of how it handles software management (same thing with Ubuntu). I'll give Mandriva a shot and see what happens.
