Description tslake 1998-12-14 13:06:30 EST
After a new install (workstation) of RH5.2, Sndconfig failed
with the following error (h/w is SB AWE32):

The following error occurred running the modprobe program:
Device or Resource busy
Sound:  Device or resource busy

Sndconfig worked fine with this machine w/ RH5.1.  There
have been no h/w changes.

We need to know what mode SoundBlaster it is. There is usually a
number marked on the card such as CTxxxx where the x's are some
Comment 2 David Lawrence 1998-12-29 19:18:59 EST
We will need to get a CT1920 into the test lab to accurately test this
Comment 3 tslake 1999-03-04 18:44:59 EST
followup info...i went back and tried running sndconfig option from
setup. it worked. i now have sound.  what had not worked was
configuring sound during a new workstation install and later with
standalone sndconfig.
