Description Joshua Buysse 2000-08-21 01:44:34 EDT
Sound loading during rc.sysinit is a bad idea, see bug 16663 for a good 
reason why.  If the sound modules are buggered, user can't even get to 
single-user without deep magic.

Maybe something like /etc/init.d/sound, loading early in multi-user but 
never in single-user?

As of initscripts-5.53-1, sound modules will only be loaded
if persistent DMA buffers are needed. I'm still considering
putting this other places.
