Arts: error while opening /dev/dsp (after make modules_install)


hi all, recently i remade my modules to include support for ntfs (as a module, obviously :P), to do this i did:

make menuconfig
checked that ntfs was a module (it was, so were most things)
make dep
make modules
make modules_install
rebooted
modprobe ntfs

that was it, worked a treat and my windows dir (winxp) is now mounted as /mnt/windows (after a slight change to my /etc/fstab). so its all hunky-dory! except for one thing...when i start KDE i now get this message:

http://www.mscontracting.co.uk/kde_error.png

and i have no sound! plus something interested me, i went into info centre in KDE and found the following:

http://www.mscontracting.co.uk/kde_info.png

crafted using my master skills in gimp lol. youll notice (red outlined items) that my USB2 controller, my ISA bridge, my IDE bus master and my onboard sound all appear to be unknown devices, so im presuming they wont have any drivers loaded? (no drivers for the bus master???)

im not really sure if the info centre gives out any handy info, though i have checked all my module settings using make menuconfig and pretty much most things are modules, i didnt even edit the config of them as ntfs was already a module.

another thing to note was (in desperation) i did modprobe -n /* (that lists all the modules it can find, right? or is that really wrong? if so tell me! :P) and it comes up with nothing at all.

any help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance!

I use Gentoo but somehow your sound modules were removed. You need to add them back. I compiled them as part of my kernel, not as modules. You can do either way I guess.

Those are under Sound in mine.

IDE stuff is usually under ATA/IDE then IDE,ATA & ATAPI Block device.

USB is under USB then select the ones you need.

A "*" is built in and "M" is modules. Just in case you didn't know. I usually go down from top to bottom and read them all. Select help and it will give you more info most of the time.

It does vary from one kernel to the next.

Hope that helps. If not maybe the BUMP will.

Later

well, ran a full kernel compilation routine etc, made sure sound support was built-in (*, was previously a module), and all the drivers for sound cards were modules. also included the feature in the kernel that automatically loads modules on request (Kernel Module Loader), does that need additional configuration or not?

checking...i have a VT8375 northbridge and VT8235 Southbridge...hmm, seems menuconfig doesnt have entries for them. thats odd because im sure they were detected before. im gonna try find some drivers for them

Look at this link to find your sound info. I found this on the Gentoo alsa install guide.

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/

Read this to.

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml

That should tell you if it is supported and which driver/module to use and how to make it work.

That help?
