Description Dimi Paun 2004-12-24 07:30:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
The system has the following sound card installed:
  ESS Technology ES1968 Maestro 2

Every time the box starts up, kudzu pops up and:
  1. Says that it detected the card was removed
  2. Of course, if you say remove config, it will 
     say that it detected it

Needless to say, it gets quite annoying fast.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot the box
2. wait for kudzu to startup


Actual Results:  I'm always asked about the soundcard, even though it
was configured on a previous boot.

Expected Results:  Once configured, I shoudn't be asked to reconfigure
it on every boot.

Can you attach /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and the output of 'kuzdu -p' from
single user mode?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-12-25 06:18:39 UTC
If you remove the second AUDIO/PCI entry from /etc/sysconfig/hwconf,
does it stop prompting you?

Comment 5 Dimi Paun 2004-12-26 17:36:11 UTC
Yes, it does.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-12-28 05:48:38 UTC
OK, somehow you got a second entry in the file. Odd.

Comment 7 Dimi Paun 2004-12-28 06:12:27 UTC
Yes, it's been there for some time, I believe the box was upgraded
all the way from RH9 -> FC2 -> FC3test3 -> FC3 (it may have been even
before RH9, like RH7.x, but I can't remember if I did an upgrade or a
clean install).

In any event nothing I did from kudzu seemed to fix it. We can only
hope it was caused by a kudzu bug that is long gone :).

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2004-12-28 07:18:38 UTC
Not sure where to go for here. Closing as deferred; please reopne if
the second entry comes back.
