Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116069
Soundcard Detection program barfs on already loaded drivers.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 EST
Description of problem:
When using the soundcard autodetection, the program correctly
identifies the soundcard as a Soundblaster Audigy. Attempting to play
a test sound produces the following error message:
The snd-emu10k1 driver could not be loaded. This sound card may not
be compatible with Red Hat Linux.
(in the terminal from which system-config-soundcard was run):
FATAL: Module snd_emu10k1 is in use.
FATAL: Module snd_emu10k1 already in kernel.
The test sound then proceeds to play properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.2.2-1
How reproducible: Executing the system-config-soundcard utility
produces these errors whenever a test sound is attempted and again on
exit (Clicking OK).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From the Red Hat Menu, Select System Settings > Soundcard Detection
2. Enter the root password.
3. Click "Play test sound"
Actual results: The above error message.
Expected results: Just a nice clean test sound.
Additional info: From the error messages and the fact that the sound
does in fact play, its pretty clear that the soundcard configuration
program is attempting to load a driver already loaded into the kernel.
The situation needs to be handled more gracefully.
