Description Olivier Crête 1999-11-19 21:54:08 UTC
The aumix loading in rc.sysinit is inside a "if" on sound modules (checks
if sound module is in conf.modules, it should be separate and use
/proc/devices like the halt scripts... You know, non modular sound still

Because right now it does not works with my kernel with non-modular sound
(well I just pulled the aumix part out of the "if" so it would work)

Where is rhsound gone?

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-22 16:12:59 UTC
rhsound went away.

This will be fixed in initscripts-4.66-1; the mixer loading
will be done automatically if sound is registered in /proc/devices.

Comment 2 Olivier Crête 1999-11-24 19:42:59 UTC
In the new initscript 4.67-1, there is an error in the test for the grep, part
the syntax is totally incorrect, you cannot have a grep directly inside a []
(which stands for the test command (man test and man bash))
The grep and the test have to be separated and combined with "&&" like that:
this is what should be in the next version:

if (grep -q "\(sparcaudio\|sound\)" /proc/devices 2>/dev/null) && [ -f
/etc/.aumixrc -a -x /bin/aumix-minimal ]; then

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-29 16:32:59 UTC
fixed in initscripts-4.69-1, in raw hide now.
