Description kjw 1999-01-25 19:47:17 UTC
sndconfig will dump core (seg fault) if the kernel doesn't
have pci support linked in.  The fix is a one-line change:

oops, this patch is backwards, but I can't get another
diff -u generated until tomorrow.  You can see it's a simple
fix, though; it just doesn't detect the -1 return from the
pciProbeDevice, so it needs to check n<1 instead of the
erroneous !n.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-01-25 20:41:59 UTC
This can be worked around by running sndconfig with '--noprobe'
(of course, that turns off the isapnp probe as well.)

Fixed in sndconfig-0.29-5.
