Description Chris Runge 1999-03-23 20:01:00 EST
during autoconfiguration of sndconfig this error appears:

error occurred when opening /dev/audio

This is after it tries to play a sound.  My sound card, an
SB AWE64 Gold, is correctly identified.

This used to work in 5.2 and in earlier versions of 5.8
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-24 09:13:59 EST
Edit your /etc/conf.modules so that the line
that contains
'alias sound sb'
actually starts on it's own line. There was a bug
in the 5.9 installer where it didn't write a newline
at the end of /etc/conf.modules.

Does that solve the problem?
Comment 2 Chris Runge 1999-03-26 12:12:59 EST
yes, this addresses it
