Description ezra 1999-09-18 21:16:25 UTC
Hi I'm running Redhat 6.0 it works perfectly with the
exception of the sound card, whose driver is not loading. So,
as I have done on previous versions of Redhat, I tried
running sndconfig, every time I do, it works like normal it
gets to the point of probing & finding my ess1868 audio card
& then when I tell it to go ahead, I get a blue screen with a
blinking cursor. No key stroke combination that I have been
able to find will unfreeze it & it just sits there untill I
hit the reset button on my CPU. It does this from the normal
command line or from a command line from inside of X either
way it freezes the system & I have to hit the switch. I have
successfully used this tool on this very computer with the
same hardware on previous versions of Redhat without any
difficulty.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

If you run 'pnpdump -c' from the command line, what does it do?

Comment 2 ezra 1999-09-18 21:41:59 UTC
it appears to crash my system

Oops sorry for that second reply, I also tried the things you mention
in bug note 2401. 'modprobe sound' returns me to a blank command line.
'isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf' says file not found.
pnpdump without the -c returns the following

Comment 5 ezra 1999-09-19 20:04:59 UTC
More info - when the lockup happens I can't telnet in either & if I
have a running telent it kills it.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-23 19:22:59 UTC
Try the latest isapnptools & sndconfig
(1.18b-2, and 0.37-4) from Raw Hide. This should solve
the problem. If it doesn't please reopen.

Comment 7 ezra 1999-10-04 06:50:59 UTC
Ok I've downloaded & installed sndconfig .037 from Rawhide I also got
the new newt & kudzu which the module claimed it was dependent on, they
all installed fine & I ran sndconfig & guess what, same crash at the
same point in the program. I get a complete system lockup. Any other
suggestions ?

Comment 8 ezra 1999-10-04 06:59:59 UTC
Sorry- my mistake I forgot to install isapnptools, it worked fine after
I did, thanks for the help

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-04 15:09:59 UTC
Good to see that it worked. :)
