Description Douglas Kilpatrick 2001-02-03 18:58:28 EST
When running sndconfig from a command line, it correctly identified my
sound card (SBLive Value) and then claimed it was not supported.

Upon fixing a problem in the BIOS (PNP OS? "no"), kudzu saw the card and
spawned sndconfig.  This time it worked fine (although no midi support).
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-05 17:34:43 EST
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-05 17:45:14 EST
That wouldn't have worked anyway; without that BIOS tweak, the card
had no IRQ assigned to it; it was effectively disabled in the BIOS.

It's techinically possible to change the driver mapping to something
that indicates 'disabled', I suppose.

Fixed in sndconfig-0.59-1; another translatable string, whee!
