Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2548
sndconfig crashes attempting to play MIDI sound
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
when sndconfig reports that it is trying to play a MIDI
sound to test the config, it gives the error:
the following error occurred while trying to run the
and it's blank. it then drops down into manual config, but
even then it loops and crashes at the same point.
I'm using redhat 5.9 with the sndconfig package upgraded to
6.0's version (0.33-1). I am running it as root, and
modprobe is in my path.
my soundcard is an AWE-64 Value, which is detected properly,
and I can hear Linus' voice.
What happens if you do 'modprobe awe_wave' from the command line?

Is there an awe_wave module anywhere under /lib/modules?
this may seem obvious but did you configure the lowlevel drivers and
enable the AWE in the lowlovel drivers? Is there a
/lib/modules/2.2.x/misc/awe_wave modules? I have an AWE64 and it
works on my system sndconfig --noprobe
closed due to lack of input.
I have a solution to this problem. To get the midi working, read up
the kernel documentation on the AWE32 sound card. It states that you
need to manually edit the /etc/isapnp.conf file to add 3 io ports to
the wavetable device. Once you do this everything works great.
