Angry Sound Blaster Audigy 2 w/ Fedora 1


I'll admit upfront that I'm a total Linux n00b. I only installed Fedora Core 1 yesterday, yet I've installed nVIDIA Graphics and nForce drivers, as well as recompiled the kernel. Yet no matter what I do I can't get my audigy 2 sound card to work. Fedora detects my audigy 2 just fine, but it won't play sounds, through the soundcard detection. I'm quite aware that this is a big issue, and I've been looking all over to see if I couldn't work through it myself. So far this is what I've done.

Downloaded the alsa 1.0.4 drivers, utils, and lib

Performed the following in alsa-driver-1.0.4
./configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes
make
make install

Performed the following in alsa-lib-1.0.4
./configure
make
make install

Performed the following in alsa-utils-1.0.4
./configure
make
make install

As you can see I followed the instructions provided by alsa by the word. When I do

modprobe snd-emu10k1;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

this is what I get.

[root@localhost alsa-utils-1.0.4]# modprobe snd-emu10k1;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptlsmp/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: unresolved symbol schedule_work

/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptlsmp/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod snd-seq-oss failed

At this point I've decided to give it a rest and ask for help while I get some shuteye. Could somebody plz walk me through this, or describe a differant way of installing the sound card driver? I would much appreciate it.

No, you seem to have installed using the correct procedure. What I find interesting is that I've already been trying to help with this same problem in this thread, without success. The other person does not say what distro they are using, but since they have exactly the same kernel as you, I'm guessing it's also Fedora.

So I'm thinking this is a Fedora problem, and if so, you might want to check out these Fedora resource links:

http://www.fedoraforum.org/

http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/communicate/

http://fedoranews.org/

http://www.fedorazine.com/

[freshrpms.net] - ALSA

Installing ALSA in fedora core 1 (yarrow)

unofficial #fedora FAQ site, particularly How do I make ALSA work?

From only a quick scan of these sites and documents, it seems like the problem may be that you are both compiling this from source... the RPMs for Fedora might be more suitable for more reasons than that they're easier to install. It's quite possible that the RPMs are specifically pre-compiled in such a way that it avoids this very problem.

Hope this helps.

It is answered in the file INSTALL in the alsa-driver source directory. It's at the bottom of the file. hint:

touch include/linux/workqueue.h

When I was a linux n00b I didn't know to ALWAYS "less ./INSTALL" You learn more neat stuff that way.
