sndconfig not properly writting out to isapnp.conf
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I would guess this is a result of it writing isapnp.conf
with a (VERIFYLD N) at the top of the file before it runs
the sound tests. I've only seen this with the soundblaster
cards i've tried. I can update with the full error message
tonight when i get home to redo it on the two machines that
i tried it on. This is my first bug report so if more
information is needed please let me know.
More information is needed. What is it writing that's causing
it to fail? (The error message and a copy of the isapnp.conf
would be helpful.) In general, sndconfig just writes the
isapnp.conf that pnpdump hands it, with certain settings

OK, it looks like sndconfig did botch the isapnp.conf
file, although I'm not quite sure how yet. What you can
- remove that /etc/isapnp.conf (the problem is that
it's got about 4 entries for the same card...)
- run 'pnpdump --config >/etc/isapnp.conf'
- run 'isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf' and note the settings it picked
- put these settings in /etc/conf.modules
(there should be an 'options sb' line that should show
you the general format)
Does that help?

Not really; I'm not sure what happened to your /etc/isapnp.conf;
it basically ended up with the same card entered four
times over, which really confused isapnp.
