Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9109
error occurred running the modprobe program
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:21 EDT
I have a Sound Blaster 16 PCI sound card. I ran sndconfig to configure, and
the program detected ES1371 Sound card. When the program trying to run the
Sound Card Test, I get the following: "The following error occurred running
the modprobe program:", no actual error is displayed. I also try to
run pnpdump, and it doesn't seem to create any info. on the sound card.
Make sure that /sbin is in your path before you run sndconfig.
Does 'modprobe es1370' or 'modprobe es1371' from the command-line
pnpdump won't show anything, as your card is a PCI card.
In fact, the 'error occurred...' is because sndconfig in 6.0
assumes that /sbin is in the path. This is fixed in the
current sndconfig in rawhide.
