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

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

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).

What process did you use to install the drivers?

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?

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

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?
