so I got so far along in the Alsa drivers install as make install, when I do that however I get this error message
===== WARNING =====
The options for ALSA modules on your system still include snd_ prefix,
which is obsoleted now. Please fix /etc/modules.conf.
For convenience, you can use utils/module-options script to convert
the snd_ prefix automatically.
WARNING!!! The mixer channels for the ALSA driver are muted by default!!!
You would use some ALSA or OSS mixer to set the appropriate volume.
How do I run the module-options script? Doubleclicking in kde apears to do nothing and when I type module-options I get
command not found
Is there some trick to running a script? how would I go about that? Or it also says to fix /etc/modules.conf when I ope it though this is whats in my modules.conf
probeall scsi_hostadapter imm ppa
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci ehci-hcd
alias sound-slot-1 snd-emu10k1
alias eth0 sk98lin
above snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm-oss
above snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
Whats it talking about with the whole using snd_prefix thing? Thanks guys, with this kind of forum I know I'll get this box going soon!
EDIT: This is wierd, just figured out if I run ./module-options it does something but it says Nothing to be changed.
running make install still gives me the same error though. hrmmmm.
well since it was telling me nothing to be changed I went ahead with the rest of the install instructions and I seem to be up and running correctly, took me some time to figure out how to work the damn mixer but yeah it's going now or so it seems, new topic coming...
