When I ran lspci -v it said I had an Esoniq 5880 AudioPCI ( it was a Creative
Sound Blaster PCI under Winblows) sound card that I stupidly forgot to install during
When I ran modconf i tried installing the module es1370, but it said:
es1370: version v0.35 time 11:53:03 Apr 20 2002
/lib/modules/2.2.20/misc/es1370.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by...
/lib/modules/2.2.20/misc/es1370.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.20/misc/es1370.o failed
/lib/modules/2.2.20/misc/es1370.o: insmod es1370 failed
So then I tried using the sb Sound Blaster compatible module, but the exact same
message (replacing es1370 with sb of course) appears.
Even when I tried uninstalling modules I never heard of (eg sunrpc) it said the device
was busy (it would also help me if u could tell me what sunrpc is/does???)
Im at my wits end here, Ive tried everything, even compiling a kernel v2.6.7, but that
doesn't work, because when I made the modules it kept saying all these things were
undefined. When I tried booting with it, it said it was missing the root= parameter, even
though I specified root=/dev/hda3 in lilo.conf, so I have to stick with 2.2.20. And I
can't reinstall either, because I use network install but have already used 440MB/1GB
of downloads for the month as of 7/08. (I installed Debian Woody stable version with
KDE on the 4th
so I am a newbie at actually using Linux, but I have spent weeks reading about it
I dont know what else to do. Can anyone HELP me???
Thank you to anyone who answers...
