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):
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)
fixed in devel.
