I am attempting to install the ALSA sound drivers for the nForce sound/video/network chip. After reading in many places that the nForce drivers are more trouble than they are worth (and after attempting, i agree), I tried the alsa driver set and alsaconfig. This failed miserably.
the snd-ac97-codec.o module is loaded. However, when i attempt to load snd-intel8x0 via modprobe, i get this set of errors:
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/sound/acore/snd-rawmidi.o: unresolved symbol snd_register_oss_device
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/sound/acore/snd-rawmidi.o: unresolved symbol snd_oss_info_register
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/sound/acore/snd-rawmidi.o: unresolved symbol snd_unregister_oss_device
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/sound/acore/snd-rawmidi.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/sound/acore/snd-rawmidi.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/sound/acore/snd-rawmidi.o: insmod snd-intel8x0 failed
Many of the other modules I attempt to insert also fail with the first message (or only message) unresolved symbol snd_register_oss_device. I compiled alsa with ./configure --with-oss=yes.
