Unhappy Slackware 8.1 and audio configuration


New to linux...

can't find out if my sound card is supported (yamaha YMF 740C motherboard integrated) by slackware 8.1.

if supported, what is the modprobe command ?

Got this message when launching kdm or reloading the sound server :

Error while initializing the sound driver
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (no such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device

help welcome

Linux will forget your sound as soon as you reboot/shut down. You add this line to rc.modules and it will remember it.

Thumbs up

Read documentation and did it right after the command was given. thanks anyhow
Was wondering :
Is lib/module/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/
the area where i can check out if hardware is supported ?
found in
lib/module/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound/
the following file : ymfpci.o.gz

Question : is it the directory mod probe is using ?

Sort of... modprobe checks a couple of files (/lib/modules/<kernel>/modules.dep being one) to see which ones are needed by what, and then searches through all of the /lib/modules/<kernel>/ to find and load them.
