Description Mike A. Harris 2001-03-24 04:08:14 UTC
In sndconfig the dialog boxes that show up to configure the
sound card let the user pick IRQ/DMA, etc..  I just watched someone
new to Linux configure his SB32, and was at a loss for how to
choose DMA 5 when looking at the screen.  I myself looked at it and
thought it was odd too, as I know I've configure IRQ 5 DMA 1, 5 using
sndconfig before.  After fiddling a bit, we discovered that the DMA
box scrolled down.  However it isn't outwardly apparent to the end user
that the box actually contains more than what is shown on the screen as
no scrollbar or combo box indicator is shown.  I think that this is bad
and should be enhanced to avoid user confusion, and increased tech
support calls, etc.

You might want to look into other config utils also in case this
problem manifests itself there as well.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 05:20:11 UTC
sndconfig is obsolete now, or very close to being such, so this is not
really worth tracking any longer.  Closing as WONTFIX.
