Description Chris Kloiber 2001-06-20 14:58:03 EDT
Description of Problem:

Since the modutils package started requiring the use of /etc/modules.conf
instead of /etc/conf.modules, sndconfig is broken since it writes only to
/etc/conf.modules. This should be a trivial fix, but an errata package
would be nice.

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Run sndconfig to install a soud card after upgrading modutils. 

Actual Results:

Seems to work, but writes to /etc/conf.modules. Subsequent attempts to run
sndconfig fail, and cause error messages at boot stating that
/etc/conf.modules is depreciated and ignored.

Expected Results:

Sndconfig should correctly update /etc/modules.conf

If you're requiring modules.conf, you're running the *wrong* modutils for 6.2.
