Description sinsalaco 1998-12-25 21:12:44 UTC
sfxload must be at /bin, as it's called from the init
script!
If you move /usr in another partition the init script
couldn't find it!
It's easy to resolve (copy sfxload in bin and edit
rc.sysinit), but is a bug.....

this is fixed in awesfx-0.4.2-3, sndconfig-0.27-3.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-29 15:26:59 UTC
*** Bug 585 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

rc.sysinit attempts to load the midi module alias before all
filesystems are mounted. If /usr is on a different
filesystem, then /usr/bin/sfxload cannot be executed and the
module load fails.

sfxload is used by the post-install directive in
conf.modules (as inserted by soundconfig).

Solution:

Move sound initialisation to occur after filesystems are
mounted.
