I knw my sound is supported because it works in FC4 fine, I just downloaded latest v. of alsa, but with debian anything related to my nForce4 chipset doesnt seem to be native, like my ethernet card isnt detected in the install, but works when debian is installed. Anyway, anyone got any ideas?
When I use those drivers from nvidia, it tries to use the kernel sources then outputs the error:
If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
You may want to upgrade to "testing" if you haven't already.
Now for a symlink. In a root terminal, type
ln -s /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8-11-amd64-k8 /usr/src/linux
