(Tool polishing)
redhat-config-soundcard crashes when you attempt to run it in a text console
with the following newbie confusing message.

[root@inspiron8000 root]# redhat-config-soundcard
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-soundcard/redhat-config-soundcard.py", line 24,
in ?
    import soundcard
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-soundcard/soundcard.py", line 22, in ?
    import gtk
line 19, in ?
RuntimeError: could not open display

Would it be possible to automatically fall back to console sndconfig if X is not

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "redhat-config-soundcard" in a text console without X.	

Actual Results:  
Crash message.

Expected Results:  
Should fall back to sndconfig.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2002-08-01 09:25:22 EDT
I don't want to kick off another program without telling the user what's
happening.  Instead, I have the program print a message saying that
redhat-config-soundcard requires a currently running X server and suggests
running sndconfig.  Thanks for your report.

Should be fixed in redhat-config-soundcard-0.9.7-1

Fix confirmed with redhat-config-soundcard-0.9.7-1.
