[Pkg-alsa-devel] Bug#402599: alsa-utils: No error message when probing for ISA cards fails

Package: alsa-utils
Version: 1.0.13-1
Severity: normal

If you probe for ISA cards, but no cards are found, it will show an
empty dialogue with only an "OK" button. It will then exit and drop to
the promt, never having said that the configuration failed.

Just for your information, since you do warn that probing causes
instability when probing ISA cards: It crashed it two times while probing,
one of them messing up my hard disk so I had to reinstall. I only
succeeded when I only probled for the correct card.

Regards, Thue
