there are a lot of posts about nforce, but nothing seems relevant to my problem.
My nforce audio (module: mvaudio.o) works fine in 2.4.25, but when I recompiled to 2.6.4, it would n't work. I use Gentoo, so I should jsut be able to type "emerge nforce-audio" and it should work. It doesn't and I get an error telling me so.
Therefore, I decided that I might as well just compile from the source on the Nvidia website. I did all that it told me to do, untarring etc. Then, I cd-ed into the nvaduio folder and did:
hamish@archimedes nvaudio $ make
make: Entering directory `/home/hamish/nforce/nvaudio'

It was not properly compiled and I don't know what to do next.
Hi. I get the same error when trying to emerge nforce-audio. I know that it can work on this computer, since genkernel seems to work. Should something be added to the kernel configuration for this to work?
I am using a 2.6.7 kernel on an Athlon XP with an nv177 motherboard.
