Fedora 2/Thinkpad 600e/Sound


hello all.

i know many of you have installed sound on this type of laptop. i have searched throroughly through this board and others looking for solutions. i still cannot get sound to work on this laptop.

first, i have reviewed the dma/irq/port settings using ps2.exe and i have turned pcibuspower to off as well. quickboot has been turned off in BIOS.

the cs4232 drivers from ALSA have been installed according to the directions on the alsa-project. org web site. after completing the installation, i get the following response to modprobe snd-cs4232:
FATAL: Error inserting snd_cs4232 (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/isa/cs423x/snd-cs4232.ko): No such device

alsaconf can see the card when it searches for legacy cards, but cannot probe the card and subsequently quits.

i have edited /etc/modprobe.conf with the following:

alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss

alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

alias sound-slot-0 snd-cs4232
options snd-cs4232 port=0x530 cport=0x538 isapnp=0 dma1=1 dma2=0 irq=5


where specifically have i gone wrong. i gave up on suse 9.0 a few months ago due to this problem. i know the sound card works fine under windows.

any assistance would be appreciated.

Use the snd-cs4236 driver instead. Edit your modprobe.conf and delete the lines you added for the soundcard. The latest alsaconf (from the alsa-utils package) detects the 600E correctly and will add the correct lines automatically, or if that fails this works for me:
Code:
alias /dev/mixer snd-mixer-oss
alias /dev/dsp snd-pcm-oss
alias /dev/midi snd-seq-oss

# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF verion 1.0.4 ---
options snd  device_mode=0666
alias snd-card-0 snd-cs4236
alias sound-slot-0 snd-cs4236
options snd-cs4236 port=0x530 cport=0x538 isapnp=0 dma1=1 dma2=0 irq=5
Restart the Alsa init script (/etc/init.d/alsasound restart will do it on most distros).

i compiled the cs4236 driver and have the same results.

after compiling the driver, editing module.conf, i still get the following

modprobe snd-cs4236 port=0x530 cport=0x538 isapnp=0 dma1=1 dma2=0 irq=5

alsaconf will not recognize as well with the cs4236 driver.

am i missing something?

What does the dmesg output have to say about your attempted insertion of the driver? And you seem to have compiled the driver against the source for a different kernel as you get a lot of symbols errors. This may stop the module from loading as well.

Solution to snd_cs4236 not loading under Fedora Core

This is a common problem with a very easy fix.

Go into the bios (hold F1 during power on works for most 600 series thinkpads). There is an option called quick boot or something along that line.

DISABLE IT!

then select Initalize and enter.

Save the settings and exit the bios.

Voila.... cs-4236 should load.

The problem here lies in the Crystal Audio chipset. For some reason it does not properly initalize during a 'quick boot' for the linux module to load.



Ive seen this problem posted everywhere on the net. I'd like to see some replies to see if this fixes it.

FYI, using the Initialize feature in the BIOS only helped me when the computer froze up completely when I tried loading ALSA modules.

The error messages kms_md posted look more like mismatching module versions for the actual running kernel.

This issue can also be seen on the Fedora Core bugzilla. I've recieved a lot of replies about the quickboot fix working for other thinkpad users.

600e fix for debian

The key is too disable the other sound modules
disable snd_cs46xx, cs46xx, and css4232
and then modprobe snd_cs4236 with the io and other options.

check out http://linux-laptop.net/hosted/thinkpad600e-fc4.html for this installer's sucessful solution to sound problem. He had same problem with FC2/3.
Good luck
