Description Paco Soberón 2005-11-08 02:13:49 UTC
Description of problem:
After installing my new USB camera, system-config-soundcard crashes at startup.

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 87, in __init__
    self.device, self.module, self.maker, self.model =
self.soundcardBackend.getData(card)
  File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/soundcardBackend.py", line 106, in
getData
    maker, model = string.split(description, " ", 1)
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

The problem is that description of my USB camera is very short: it has only one
word. So the list returned by split function has only one element, and cannot be
assigned to the tuple (maker, model). A similar problem would arise if the
description was an empty string.

I send attached a working (at least for me) patch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using system-config-soundcard-1.2.10-1 on FC3

How reproducible:
Always

It should be fixed in devel (package system-config-soundcard-1_2_14-1)
