Description HP 2000-01-12 20:35:49 UTC
I have run sndconfig with --noprobe and --noautoconfig and selected
NeoMagic 256AV from the Device list.  After selecting it, I am presented
with a dialog box "Warning: On Dell Inspirion 3500 this drivers freezes
the system". And it asks me to continue [Yes] [No].  If I select [Yes] it
gives me the same dialog again, so I select [Yes] and it again displays
the dialog.  So I decided to click [No] which exited out of the sndconfig.

I have finished installing Red Hat Linux 6.1 on my SONY VAIO PCG-F340:
PII 366MHz
HD  6.40GB

DISPLAY NeoMagic 256AV
SOUND   NeoMagic 256AV *

MODEM    Rockwell (Stupid WinModem) *

* not configured

Could you please help

Fixed in the latest sndconfig in Raw Hide.
Alternatively, just add 'alias sound nm256' to

Comment 2 HP 2000-01-13 16:08:59 UTC
I tried your suggestion.  But when insmod tries to load nm256.o module it gives
like 8 to 10 symbol unresolved error.

Any suggestion on what I should do?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-13 16:17:59 UTC
Use modprobe instead of insmod.

Comment 4 HP 2000-01-13 19:49:59 UTC
Thaks, it works somewhat.  I can hear the system bell now (when you try to
backspace at the begining of line).  But I still am not able to play any
wav/mp3/realaudio files.  I tried diffrent players (KDE and GNOME).

Could you please help?
