Realtek ALC650 sound card problems


uh...its not working, lol. I have an nvidia nforce 2 chipset, and i downloaded, the drivers from nvidia.com, but they failed to install-it got the following error message:

Code:
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvsound.o'.  This is most likely    
         because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source
         files.  Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
         for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you   
         have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct     
         kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source  
         path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
can u plz help me get my sound up and running? I'm on slackware 10.0 with a 2.4.26 kernel. thx for your time.

Why not use ALSA drivers instead... I use them and get 5.1 surround...?



Might want to read over this if you want to use nvsound

How did you manage to have 5.1 with alsa?
Center and subwoofer are also working?

execute alsamixer and scroll across with the -> key until you see a control that says:

Mic as Centre/LFE ..

Mic as Centre/LFE [OFF] ... it will probalby look like this... hit the "M" key and the "off" should disappear.. then plug a stereo 1/8" jack into the MIC and the one side will be the center and the other side will be SUB...

Cheers,

Gary
