Description From 2005-04-29 17:56:05
I found that my /etc/modules.conf contains settings conflicting w/ current
sound.rc loading logic. Since I can consider my modules.conf in its sound
section pretty standard, I guess, this new logic may be called somewhat ...

The conflicting lines are:

above snd-au8830 snd-pcm-oss
above snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss

which cause automatic loading of OSS emulation layer. If these lines are
presented in modules.conf even plain modprobe snd-au8830 fails w/ the following

[root@pyro alex]# modprobe snd-au8830
modprobe: Too deep recursion in module dependencies!
modprobe: Circular dependency?
[root@pyro alex]# _

I guess new hotplug/libhw installation script should check for such strings in
modules.conf or or somehow force user to perform appropriate changes

above snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss

Интересно, поймут ли меня пользователи, если я начну править modules.conf в
скриптах ?

не могу исправить, каждый должен исправить у себя сам.
