Description of problem:
I'm trying to use sndconfig to configure my via8233c [AC'97] chip, but it
appears to have trouble with the IRQs (hangs when attempting to play the sample
sounds). I tried --noautoconfig, but sndconfig didn't acknowledge that I had
used any arguments. (i.e., when i used --noprobe the initial screen says that it
won't probe) In addition, it still automatically set up my sound chip

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "sndconfig --noautoconfig"
2. Hit OK a couple times

Expected Results: the opening screen should have acknowledged that i used a
command line argument, and it should have asked me to enter in my own sound settings

This is why I tried sndconfig (which had done the trick initially), and now
hangs horribly after correct detection of soundchip while trying to play the
It is a pure RH7.3 machine, installed from scratch, and continuously updated
(rhn). That looks like some update broke it.
sndconfig is no longer developed, and this release has reached end-of-life.
Closing out old bugs.
