RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for sndconfig (redhat section 8)

sndconfig(8)			     System Manager's Manual			     sndconfig(8)

NAME
       sndconfig - configure sound card for use with Linux kernel modules

SYNOPSIS
       sndconfig {--help,--noprobe,--noautoconfig}

DESCRIPTION
       sndconfig  sets up the necessary configuration files to use a sound card on a Red Hat sys-
       tem. If PnP support is compiled in, by default sndconfig will do an initial probe for  PnP
       sound cards using the pnpdump utility.  If the --noprobe option is given this step will be
       skipped.  The user will be notified if any cards were found. Otherwise the user must  pick
       the  card  type from a menu. Then the user must choose the I/O port, IRQ, and DMA settings
       for the sound card. These must be known ahead of time and depend upon the jumper  settings
       of  the	sound  card.  For PnP cards, the program will determine settings for the card; if
       the --noautoconfig option is given the user can choose the values which will be programmed
       into the PnP device. There is no guarantee that the values entered do not conflict with an
       existing non-PnP or PnP device.	The user must make sure these types of conflicts  do  not
       occur.

   OPTIONS
       --help Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.

       --noprobe
	      No  probe  will  be made for PnP cards, and the PnP configuration files will not be
	      changed.

       --noautoconfig
	      No autoconfiguration of PnP cards will be done; the user will be prompted for  set-
	      tings.

FILES
       /etc/sysconfig/soundcard Stores	current  settings  /etc/modules.conf	    Stores  sound
