Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21232
modutils-2.3.20-0.6.2.1 breaks sound on RH 6.2
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:59 EDT
After upgrading to modutils-2.3.20-0.6.2.1.i386.rpm
(following RedHat Advisory [RHSA-2000:108-03])
I get the error
| Nov 21 19:04:33 moltke rc.sysinit: Finding module dependencies succeeded
| Nov 21 19:04:33 moltke modprobe: Using
| Nov 21 19:04:33 moltke modprobe: insmod: a module named sound already

Long time ago I've already changed
/etc/conf.modules -> /etc/modules.conf in "/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.

Are you sure you had the latest modutils package for the errata? It looks
like the broken modutils package moved /etc/conf.modules to /etc/modules.conf,
then when you upgraded to the fixed modutils package things didn't get moved
If I (firstname.lastname@example.org) am supposed to answer this (bug 21240), I am unaware
that file /etc/modules.conf ever existed on my machine. Here is my entire
/etc/conf.modules as it is now, in case it matters:
valinux:root[/etc]# cat conf.modules
alias scsi_hostadapter ncr53c8xx
alias eth0 eepro100
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7
alias sound sb
pre-install sound insmod sound dmabuf=1
alias midi opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 mpu_io=0x330
The change from /etc/conf.modules to /etc/modules.conf in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
was necessary (at least for me) for after upgrade from RK 6.0 to RH 6.2 as
suggested by a warning message from "depmod -a".
I just took a look into the source of "modutils-2.3.20-0.6.2.1"
#define ETC_MODULES_CONF "/etc/modules.conf"
"man depmod" says:
| /etc/modules.conf (alternatively but deprecated /etc/modules.conf)
But "man modprobe" tells me:
| /etc/modules.conf, (alternatively but deprecated: /etc/conf.modules)
Just to complete the overall confusion :-)
Fix: change the 'alias sound' in /etc/<whatever you're using>
to 'alias sound-slot-0'.
Resolved for me: RealAudio now works for me. Thank you.
For me too, thanks for the fix.
But you should tell /usr/sbin/sndconfig not to generate such sound related
lines as in /etc/modules.conf, which made the discussion and fix appear.
Sideeffect: I learned to handle bugzilla.
