Description Jan Carlson 2000-01-11 20:36:33 UTC
The given RH6.1 Gotchas URL tells us to install the latest
modutils from rawhide, to fix RH6.1 printer detection.

PROBLEM: modutils-2.3.9-1 can't load sound
modules (at least for an ISA PnP Soundblaster 16).  It also prevents
sndconfig from succeeding. modutils-2.1.121-17 did NOT
have these problems.

Running RH6.1 w. all update rpms and RH6.1Gotchas rpms installed.

# modprobe sb
Using /lib/modules/2.2.12-20/misc/sound.o
insmod: a module named sound already exists
insmod: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.12-20/misc/sound.o failed
insmod: insmod sb failed

Related /etc/conf.modules lines:
alias sound sb
pre-install sound /sbin/insmod sound dmabuf=1
alias midi opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options sb io=0x240 irq=7 dma=0 dma16=6 mpu_io=0x300

Fixed in latest rawhide modutils (2.3.9-3+)
