Description of problem:
sndconfig gets segmentation fault when trying to test the soundcard. Two
different sound cards exhibited this problem, both PCI cards. One is a
SB128 the other is an es1898 (Allegro) based card. Both cards worked when
the module for the card was loaded manually, es1371.o and maestro3.o Both
cards were detected successfully. In addition, sndconfig fails to detect an
opl3sa2 card which is currently in the system and working. The
configuration for the opl3sa2 card was done when the system was running
6.2. The kernel is 2.4.5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. shutdown system
2. install sound card
4. run sndconfig
Actual Results: depends on the card. After detecting the PCI cards it seg
faults. It fails to detect the ISA pnp card.
System is Athlon, kernel 2.4.5 installed from source from
kernel.org.Updates using ximian redcarpet.
Hm, I don't see the segfault here. Are you running in any particular locale?
Are you running it with the LANG environment variable unset?
Yes, I believe that is correct , LANG is not set to any value.
OK, that bug has since been fixed.
