Description jvincent 1999-04-28 19:34:42 UTC
I would guess this is a result of it writing isapnp.conf with a (VERIFYLD N) at the top of the file before it runs the sound tests. I've only seen this with the soundblaster cards i've tried. I can update with the full error message tonight when i get home to redo it on the two machines that i tried it on. This is my first bug report so if more information is needed please let me know.

More information is needed. What is it writing that's causing it to fail? (The error message and a copy of the isapnp.conf would be helpful.) In general, sndconfig just writes the isapnp.conf that pnpdump hands it, with certain settings uncommented. ------- Email Received From email@example.com 04/28/99 21:43 -------

OK, it looks like sndconfig did botch the isapnp.conf file, although I'm not quite sure how yet. What you can try: - remove that /etc/isapnp.conf (the problem is that it's got about 4 entries for the same card...) - run 'pnpdump --config >/etc/isapnp.conf' - run 'isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf' and note the settings it picked - put these settings in /etc/conf.modules (there should be an 'options sb' line that should show you the general format) Does that help? ------- Email Received From firstname.lastname@example.org 04/29/99 11:47 ------- ------- Email Received From email@example.com 04/30/99 00:28 -------

Not really; I'm not sure what happened to your /etc/isapnp.conf; it basically ended up with the same card entered four times over, which really confused isapnp.
