Did you compile your kernel from source or are you using a prebuilt image?

oookidoki...

The kernel image you downloaded probably isn't compiled to support your sound card. You should compile it yourself.

To do this:

1: Download the kernel-source rpm from here.

2: Install the source rpm

Code:
tar -jxvf linux-2.6.11.8.tar.bz -C /usr/src
The kernel source should reside in the /usr/src/kernel-2.6.11.8 or /usr/src/linux-2.6.11.8.

3: Configure your kernel.

Code:
cd /usr/src/kernel-2.6.11.8
make menuconfig
Don't turn off File Systems > EXT2 or EXT3, compile them into the kernel (press Y) rather than installing them as a module (press M).

4: Soundcard

Look under the drivers section under sound devices. Turn OSS off, as it is deprecated.

Under the ALSA menu, try to find your soundcard, and press Y or M (depending on whether you compiled ALSA as a module or into the kernel

5: Quit the menuconfig.

6: Type the following:

Code:
make all
make modules_install
make install
Your new kernel should appear in the grub boot list, but will not be the default. Test it first, and if the kernel fails to boot, then reboot into your old kernel to fix it.

Any other questions I will be happy to answer.

Cheers.

Yup, shur is...

The kernel, at the end of the day, is just a program. It's a complex program, but just a computer program. When you compile the kernel, it creates the machine code from source code, and makes a "kernel image". When you pick an item in your boot menu (I assume you are using grub?) the boot item specifies what kernel image to load.

I THINK when you use make install, it will add the new kernel image to the Grub menu AS WELL as your old kernel image. So if the kernel you compiled does not work, just start back up again into your old one. It won't set the new kernel as the default one, so pick the other one in your list...

If you need a hand changing your boot menu to use the new kernel, just give me a message

Let me know how you get on

/usr/src/2.6.11-1.14_FC3.stk16
and then i tried this command
[root@localhost 2.6.11-1.14_FC3.stk16]# make config
and got this error

make: *** No rule to make target `config'. Stop.


[root@localhost 2.6.11-1.14_FC3.stk16]#

Yeh gidday.

Right, Fedora structures it kernel source differently. It will be in a subfolder, not quite shur what its called but it will have a file called Makefile in it.

Also, dont type make config, or you will be asked about 1500 fucking questions lol so type in make menuconfig
