Description Bill Nottingham 1998-11-16 16:42:42 UTC
Hi modular sound
folks...

here is a small bug in the RedHat 5.2 configuration
of
the awe_wave module for SoundBlaster AWE 32, using  the
awesfx package for
a
post-install:

/etc/conf.modules gets a
line
post-install awe_wave /usr/bin/sfxload
/etc/midi/GU11-ROM.SF2

but, in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit  , the awe_wave module is
loaded BEFORE
the /usr partition is mounted !  (so the post-install
fails)

solution #1: repackage the awesfx-0.4.2  rpm to install
sfxload into /bin
instead of /usr/bin  (simplest fix), and put out an update
on the errata page,

or

solution #2:  modify /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to delay loading
the sound modules
until after the local filesystems (other than /) are
mounted.


(workaround: cp -p /usr/bin/sfxload /bin/sfxload
)


Cheers!
Duncan

Will be fixed in next awesfx/sndconfig release, in the
meantime, you can get them from ftp.redhat.com/pub/sound.

*** Bug 92 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

The soundmodule for SB AWE has a post-install script defined
in /etc/conf.modules The called file is localet in /usr/bin,
but /usr/bin is not available at this time if the /usr
Filesystem lives on a diferent partition.
Solution:
load sound module after mounting all filesystems
