modprobe emu10k1 fails, but i have it!
 
Code:

root@Paradise:/lib/modules/2.6.16.7/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1# ls
snd-emu10k1-synth.ko  snd-emu10k1.ko  snd-emu10k1x.ko
root@Paradise:/lib/modules/2.6.16.7/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1# modprobe emu10k1
FATAL: Module emu10k1 not found.

NAR! What can I do to fix it? I'd really like sound..

The name is snd-emu10k1 (all alsa modules begin with snd-), not emu10k1 (that would be the old oss module).

liquidrabbit 04-22-2006 01:56 PM

Same deal:
Code:

root@Paradise:/home/spencer# modprobe snd-emu10k1
FATAL: Module snd_emu10k1 not found.


ioerror 04-22-2006 04:53 PM

hmm, try a 'depmod -a' to update your module dependencies.

T.T
Code:

root@Paradise:/home/spencer# modprobe snd-emu10k1
FATAL: Error inserting snd_emu10k1 (/lib/modules/2.6.16.7/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.ko): Invalid module format


ioerror 04-23-2006 03:32 AM

I've had this error a couple of times, I forget which module it was. Can't remember what the problem is exactly, I ended up recompiling the module (shouldn't need to recompile the entire kernel though, just the module).

liquidrabbit 04-24-2006 05:54 PM

Well I ended up compiling the kernel anyway (I updated to .19), but I still get
Code:

FATAL: Module snd_emu10k1 not found.

what distro are you using?

liquidrabbit 04-24-2006 09:28 PM

Slackware 10.2

swooshonln 04-24-2006 10:02 PM

What process did you use to install the drivers?

ioerror 04-25-2006 09:53 AM

It may be snd-emu10k1. I can never remember what the deal is with alsa drivers. With 2.4, they were called snd_whatever (underscore), with 2.6, it is snd-whatever (hyphen). Or maybe the other way around?

liquidrabbit 04-25-2006 04:22 PM

Code:

root@Paradise:/home/spencer# modprobe snd-emu10k1
FATAL: Module snd_emu10k1 not found.
root@Paradise:/home/spencer# modprobe snd_emu10k1
FATAL: Module snd_emu10k1 not found.

Doesn't seem to matter.

The drivers were compiled when I compiled+installed the 2.6.16.9 kernel a couple days ago. No errors either :\

[edit]
I've found emu10k1 in various places:
Code:

/usr/local/share/emu10k1
/usr/share/emu10k1
/sys/module/snd_emu10k1
/proc/asound/card0/emu10k1

*bump*

Stupid short message..

These modules are for linux-2.6.16.7.

So, (just clarifying here) you have the snd-emu10k1 module under /lib/modules/2.6.16.9?

Sounds like an odd error anyhow. How old is your soundcard? Could it be dead/dying?

liquidrabbit 04-30-2006 01:15 PM

Hmm..no I don't.

The card works in Windows just fine :\
