After i compiled a new kernel, no sound


I'm currently running Slackware 9.1 with a 2.4.24 kernel. After compiling a new kernel i have no sound. I tried running alsa and it told me no card found. I did a lspci, and that commands returns the name of my sound card. Then i did a cat /dev/sndstat, - no such device. I'm not sure what happen, i included it in my kernel build do i need to get drivers or reconfig my alsa?


thanks,

If you compiled the alsa modules in the kernel you'll probably need to recompile and only include soundcore static, and the alsa modules as loadable. The alsa drivers have a history of failing when compiled static.
good luck.

Uninstalling any alsa packages first, then installing from scratch may be your best bet. I'd also advise a recompile if the modules are built into the kernel static to remove them.
good luck.

Great site about kernel compiling: http://shilo.is-a-geek.com/slack And compile everything about sound as module, that's safer. And use newer kernel: 2.6.x has more facilities for you about sound. That works for me
