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
(incorrectly of course).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "sndconfig --noautoconfig"
2. Hit OK a couple times

Actual Results:  sndconfig ran normally, went ahead and tried to configure my
sound card without asking, tried to play a sample sounds, and hung

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

Confirmed. Wanted to post this as separate bug, but seems related (so far). my
observation: it *did* work until some more or less recent update (rhn). I don't
use it too often, but at times. Last time it was great, now it is simply silent.
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.
