Description Edward Luke 2001-08-20 17:45:03 EDT
Description of Problem:

sndconfig correctly identifies my sound card, however when It is time to
play a sound sample, I get the error message "modprobe can't locate module

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I am running RedHat 7.1 with all the latest updates applied.  I have a Dell
Precision 420 Dual processor box.  The onboard sound has been disabled with
BIOS and the sound blaster card has been installed.

How Reproducible:

It happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  run sndconfig (on system above)
2.  sndconfig correctly identifies card as Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10000
3.  Press Ok
4. A sound sample will now be played
5. press Ok
6. modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0

Actual Results:

No sound played

Expected Results:

Listen to sound sample

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Olivier Baudron 2001-08-21 04:55:23 EDT
In the file /etc/modules.conf add the line:
alias sound-slot-0 xxxx
where xxxx is the name of the module for your SBlive.

That should solve the problem, yes. I've tried it with an SBLive card here, and
sndconfig works OK.
