Description of problem:
When I run sndconfig on my NEC Ready 9732 with Aztech sound card, the plug
and play card is correctly recognized, and I am allowed to select the port,
interrupt, and DMA channels used by the card. After I make the correct

Actual Results: I was shown the error information listed above and taken

Expected Results: sndconfig properly configures the system for my sound
The version of sndconfig is: sndconfig-0.64.8-1.src.rpm
It's been quite some time since I've submitted this bug report, and I have yet
to receive a comment.
I'm now up to kernel 2.4.9-12 and I still get the same problem.

some documentation that could help me track down the cause.
I read the sound-how-to, but it was of little help.
sndconfig is no longer developed, and this release has reached end-of-life.
Closing out old bugs.
