Description Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-05 16:19:23 EDT
Description of Problem:
Roswell is installed (with X, etc) on a system with NO sound card
installed. An error occurs during halt/poweroff:

1. modprobe cannot locate Sound-slot-0
2.  aumix:  error opening mixer

Also, doing lsmod shows soundcore loaded.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Roswell with gnome, kde, etc.
2. bootup and login as root (do lsmod)
3. logout
4. select shutdown-halt

Actual Results:
error messages during shutdown (see above)

Expected Results:
no error messages

Additional Information:
You have do login (gnome session).  If you immediately just shutdown, then
no error messages
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-07 00:40:04 EDT
This is because of two things:

- the fix for bug #34758
- the fact that 'rmmod -a' doesn't run out of cron anymore

I believe turning off sound support in Gnome may stop this.
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-07 01:53:52 EDT
Sound support was never turned on in gnome and esd is not started.  However,
something in gnome is loading the "soundcore" module.  If I rmmod soundcore
before logoff/shutdown, then the problem goes away.

This answer is OK for me but may bother some novice users.  I believe that
whatever in gnome is loading soundcore (in error) should be fixed.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-07 02:00:12 EDT
Removing sound-properties from your gnome session should do it.
Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-07 05:40:30 EDT
Using gnomecc, I tried to remove everything I could.  Is there something else
because saying DON'T start esd still loads soundcore and results in the error.
