Description Peter Lawler 2005-10-06 23:52:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I run a headless/soundcardless server, on which I want to do things which require the dummy audio driver. As there is no soundcard, system-config-soundcard faults out:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/system-config-soundcard.py", line 46, in ?
    app = soundcard.childWindow()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/soundcard.py", line 64, in __init__
    self.cardList = self.soundcardBackend.probeCards()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/soundcardBackend.py", line 111, in probeCards
    driverList = read_driver_list()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/soundcardBackend.py", line 48, in read_driver_list
    fd = open('/proc/asound/modules', 'r') 
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/proc/asound/modules'

Ideally, it should offer to config the dummy driver. It should at least provide better information as to what a normal user should do.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove soundcard from system
2. Run system-config-soundcard

Actual Results:  Crash with No such file or directory: '/proc/asound/modules'

Expected Results:  Either offer to install dummy sound drivers, or confirm that no sound card is installed (or both)
