When I tried to configure my soundcard in RedHat Linux 5.0 by running the Sound Configuration Utility (sndconfig version 0.16), I got a "segmentation fault core dumped" error message when it tried to probe the system for any installed Sound Blaster cards.

How do I get pass this or how do I fix it (Yes, my machine contains a Sound Blaster card)?

BTW, I happen to see that the server lost its network connection when we started sndconfig. Can it be some IRQ and DMA problems (how do we then fix it)?

Thanks in advance.

It seems a pnp conflict.

Use the --noprobe option with sndconfig and supply yourself the Card model, i/o address, IRQ and DMA channel.

Good luck.
