sndconfig crashes machine with no PCI cards

486 DX2 66
16 megs of RAM
SCSI Adaptec 1540 (base=0x330 irq=10)
200 meg HD (ID 0)
800 meg HD (ID 3)
2x cdrom (ID 6)
Etherlink III (base=0x300 irq=5)
MSBusmouse (irq 3)
MAD16 (Soundblaster compatible) Base=0x220 IRQ=7
running sndconfig caused the system to hard lockup with a kernel error
from the aha1540 card. I am guessing that it autoprobed something that
it shouldnt have :).
Better functionality might be to have an extra screen.
Welcome to Sound Config
Do you wish sndconfig to autoprobe for your SoundCard?
This may cause some machines to crash due to IO conflicts and other
Yes goes through the AUTOProbe code tree.. NO takes you through the
sndconfig -noprobe -noautoconfig does not have this problem
pnpdump -c will cause this problem.
0/1 MAD16 card
Ok problem seems to be with the Adaptec 1540 and PNP probes. The CP dies when a
PNP dump of any sort is done... sigh.
Closing, as there's not much we can do in this case.
The hardware certainly shouldn't do that, and since it's
an ISA card, there's no way we can detect this. :(
