hi there

i am not a master at this but from ut O/P i can draw on inference that the driver ur trying load a wrong driver for ur soundcard because the driver suggests that the driver does not find the hardware for which it has been compiled

regards

hi there

u got it wrong

alsa is fine,but what i think is that the module ur trying to load is a wrong one.
it is not for ur hardfware

maybe u need to check out

"lspci"

then look out the name of ur snd card there and look the same in vndors section at
alsa-project.org

post the O/P of lspci here

regards

Thanks !!!

I was compiling for CS4232. Actually, I have CS4610/11 as the following lspci output shows.

00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: Cirrus Logic CS 4610/11 [CrystalClear SoundFusion Audio Accelerator] (rev 01)
Subsystem: IBM CS4610 SoundFusion Audio Accelerator
Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B-
Status: Cap- 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Latency: 32 (1000ns min, 6000ns max)
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 11
Region 0: Memory at 50100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
Region 1: Memory at 50000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]

10: 00 00 10 50 00 00 00 50 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
20: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 14 10 10 10
30: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0b 01 04 18

Do I have to uninstall alsa first before I do it or just configure the drivers for CS4610.

Regards
Arup

Ehm usually no
Just start alsaconf and follow the screen instructions
alsaconf will update all neccesary files and test the sound card before doing this

After alsaconf ends reboot your machine and start alsamixer because some channels might be muted which you need
