Description Garrett Mitchener 2006-09-20 17:59:15 UTC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-soundcard-2.0.3-2.fc6

Steps to Reproduce:

run system-config-soundcard.  It exits without doing anything that I can tell.

This is on a dell precision 690 workstation.  When I run lspci I get the
following info about my sound card:

0c:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB X-Fi

and from lspci -v:

0c:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
        Subsystem: Creative Labs X-Fi XtremeMusic
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 5
        I/O ports at bce0 [size=32]
        Memory at df400000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M]
        Memory at d8000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64M]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [50] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-

My sound card doesn't seem to be working at all.

could you please attach /root/scs*.log? (if you have it)

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2006-09-20 19:09:54 UTC
I'm afraid your card isn't supported under linux. see this page:

Comment 3 Garrett Mitchener 2006-09-21 19:23:07 UTC
The problem seems to be that it tries to open a file that doesn't exist.  I
assume it doesn't exist because my card isn't supported, but it would be nice
for the config program to say that rather than crashing.

You're right, there should be some kind of check...
