Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

This report is about etch installer beta 2.  I start by admitting that it may not be an installer
problem at all; it may be that sound/KDE does not work at all in current "sid".  In that case I hope
you installer guys can redirect me - it could be a kernel problem, a udev problem, or a KDE problem.

I have a PC - a few years old - with an ASRock K7S8X mother board with built-in Intel 810 sound. Sound
has worked fine with KDE in a sarge installation on this PC.  But not now, with
linux-image-2.6.16-1-686 version 2.6.16-5, udev version 0.088-2, and KDE at 3.5.2.

The installer doesn't ask or otherwise do anything about sound. But when KDE is started, (with sound
"hardware" configured to "autodetect"), the message is that /dev/dsp does not exist.  And that is
correct - it doesn't.

The interesting thing is that the kernel has loaded a bunch of sound

% lsmod | grep snd
snd_intel8x0           29436  0
snd_ac97_codec         82784  1 snd_intel8x0
snd_ac97_bus            2048  1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm                74408  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec
snd_timer              20292  1 snd_pcm
snd                    46080  4
soundcore               8672  2 i810_audio,snd
snd_page_alloc          9800  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm

So it is not that the kernel/udev hasn't recognized the sound hardware, or
has recognized it wrongly.  The problem is somewhere else, probably some missing
software or missing configuration.

Or perhaps just missing documentation.  I searched the installer FAQ,
the installer manual and the HOWTOs on sound.  No joy.

Closing this bug. Another possibility is a newer kernel version fixed
it. Thanks for your followup.
