When trying to configure an Opl3 soundcard under Sndconfig, specifically
an ESS1868 PnP, the wave device detection goes fine, but when
trying to load the modules to play the midi sample, the following happens:
The following error occurred running the modprobe program:
init_module: No such device
I can insmod the opl3 module by hand with no issues, however, the midi
module is nowhere to be seen. NB, this card has worked out of the box with
previous versions of RHL back to at least 6.0, and possibly 5.2.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ESS1688 PnP.
2. Run sndconfig.
3. Sob, wail, etc.
4. Don't listen to Mp3's.
Actual Results: The sound modules, soundcore, sb_lib etc remained loaded.
No dice on the midi though, and the configuration wasn't written out to
Expected Results: I should have heard some horribly distorted midi, and
then the program should have made some changes to my /etc/modules.conf.
