Annoying Alsa drivers Fedora core 3


Ok I know it has the drivers all ready but it wont detect my sound blaster live 24bit 7.1. So I was wondering how do I update the drivers so it supports my card.

I found out from another thread that it works with emu10k1 and the module is already included.
but everytime i try adding it using either modprobe or insmod it says the file doesn't exist basically. i typed following

modprobe /path/module.h

but when i use insmod i get

insmod module.h
insmod: error inserting 'module.h': -1 Invalid module format

Just type ' modprobe emu10k1 '. You just need to be root and can be typed anywhere.

Sounds like it is either not a module or is not configure in the kernel. Check your kernel and see if you have added it. I would make it a module instead of compile it directly into the kernel.

Instead of recompiling the kernel with support for this module you might want to download the ALSA drivers sources from here:
www.alsa-project.org

You can install them using the usual steps for compiling Linux programs, namely. the ./configure, make and make install steps.

Download location:
ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/

Download the latest version, extract the tar.gz into a directory then read the text file named INSTALL and follow the instructions.

Regards.

Could you post some error messages here? That would be helpful.

You could try recompiling the kernel to compile the driver module for your sound card. This is the best way and kernel compiling is not difficult at all. Just search these forums for them and you'll get plenty of guides on how to compile a kernel.

You needn't even do a full kernel compile. Just compile the modules.

Instructions:

Just go to the kernel source directory (make sure your kernel sources /usr/src/linux points to the correct kernel source path:
Code:
(open a terminal window if you're in X)

cd /usr/src/linux

( as root )
make menuconfig

( Look around this menu-based config tool and find your sound card driver here and mark it <M> to signify it as a module )

( Save and exit )

make modules

(wait for modules to compile)

make modules_install
Then check with modprobe to see if you can load the emu10k1 module.

Hope this helps. Regards.

the source isn't there but i downloaded it and install the rpm but still not there. As for alsa it install fine but theres no sound but all three channels are at 100% volume. The alsa sound module does load up as it was listed when i typed in lsmod
