Description Joshua Buysse 2000-08-21 01:03:47 EDT
I just had a system become unbootable -- will post hardware details when I 
get it bootable again.

Basically, sndconfig modified modules.conf (conf.modules?) before testing 
the sound module it detected.  It loaded the module, which hard-locked the 
box.  On reboot, it fsck'd and proceeded to load the sound module in an 
early initscript, then locked again.  

The box is a VIA AC-97 686 box (k6-2, FIC VA-503A mobo).  I'll post 
details from lspci when I get the box bootable.
Comment 1 Joshua Buysse 2000-08-21 01:31:41 EDT
OK, box is booting again.  Had to do a linux init=/bin/bash since initscripts 
was loading the sound module for single-user. 

sndconfig and lspci report VIA VT82C686 (Apollo Super AC97 Audio)

Can  you post the output of 'lspci -v' for
that card (specifically, subvendor/subdevice ids?)
