Description jacob 1999-10-18 20:53:12 UTC
sndconfig finds the cards, configures it, but plays no
samples at the end.

Attempting to start esd makes the machine hang for about
five seconds a number of times.

Used to work fine on sndconfig 0.33 and redhat 6.0.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-18 21:09:59 UTC
Have you actually tried this with Red Hat 6.1?
(the article is for Mandrake...)

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-18 21:18:59 UTC
Is that the exact problem you're noticing - an isapnp.conf
that has a line not uncommented correctly?

What does your isapnp.conf look like?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-19 14:52:59 UTC
Hmm... that looks OK.
What happens if you do:
isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf
modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-19 15:18:59 UTC
Yes, that isapnp.conf looks fine - that's why I wanted to know whether
those two commands work OK when run outside of sndconfig.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-20 02:27:59 UTC
That's odd. If it works running like that from the command line, it
should also work in sndconfig ; what does /etc/conf.modules say?

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-29 20:34:59 UTC
What sort of graphics card do you have?

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-01 18:53:59 UTC
If you set up sound from the console (where it works OK),
and then go into X, does sound work there?

Comment 8 4creep 1999-12-29 02:10:59 UTC
I have same problem with SB 16 Vibra Pnp

Card works ok from console, but does not work within KDE

System sounds do not produce any sound..

Any ideas?

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-08 22:24:59 UTC
The problem with KDE is with the KDE startup script, and
is fixed in the rawhide packages. As for the rest,
I can't reproduce it here.
