Description of problem:
I keep getting the message: -

FATAL: Error running install command for sound_slot_1

showing up in my logs. I only have 1 sound card in my system
(sound_slot_0 ?) which is working fine. The file that seems to be
generating this error message is: -


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot and inspect /var/log/messages

Actual Results:  "FATAL: Error running install command for
sound_slot_1" is displayed several times, and keeps being displayed as
long as the the system is up.

Expected Results:  No error because my sound card is working fine.

Additional info:

Sound card uses EMU10K1 module.

It seems that this message is generated by some component of
gnome-desktop. Because I wasn't able to reproduce it when using KDE or

Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2004-10-27 17:32:57 UTC
Its the install command associated with the sound driver (see
modprobe.conf) which is failing.

Comment 3 Adam Bowns 2004-10-27 23:09:50 UTC
I'm using stock modprobe.conf (as far as sound is concerned). Here is
the contents of it, if it is any help: -

alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
install snd-emu10k1 /usr/sbin/alsactl restore; /sbin/modprobe
--ignore-install snd-emu10k1
remove snd-emu10k1  /usr/sbin/alsactl store; /sbin/modprobe -r
--ignore-remove snd-emu10k1
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd
install ov511 /sbin/modprobe ovcamchip; /sbin/modprobe
--ignore-install ov511
options ov511 led=2
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
alias eth0 sundance

I still haven't figured out what was causing this, but whatever it
was, I am no longer getting this problem since upgrading to FC3.
