Aureal Vortex sq1500 Driver installation


I just installed linux ( madrake 9.1 ) for the first time yesterday...(Im dual booting with win 98.) and after installing I noticed that it installed some of my drivers, all my drivers except my sound card actually.

So I tried to install via cd ( forgot that it wouldnt work ) then I tried to look online for support and drivers. I eventually found a driver and downloaded immediately but when I was looking over the readme for installation instructions I was dumbfounded... I had NO idea what it was talking about. Can someone please tell me how to install a driver?


Thank you for your time,

-Michael

The package that contains the driver for your soundcard will have some files in it like INSTALL, README etc.. those files explain what to do for that driver.

With most drivers you need the kernel source files and you will build them with these commands

./configure
make install

then the driver can be loaded with this..

modprobe driver

Ok, let me see if I understand this ( in class right now so I cant do it till I get home )

When I download the driver ( it was a .gz file which I assume is the same as a .zip folder for the win users ) it will have many different files... install ect ( I didnt see install last night =( ) I do however, remeber seeing a readme, "makefile", driver core, and various driver files...

would I just open a terminal as root then type in


./configure
then make install

after that do I actually type modprobe "driver" or the actual file that the driver is in?

Im really sorry for all the questions but Im such a

Thanks again for your time,

-Michael

I checked it out and this is what you will need to do for your driver

tar zxvf au88xx-1.1.2.tar.gz
cd aureal


check the chip type with this command..

lspci -v |grep -iA4 aureal

then follow this guide..



If you have an 8830-based (Vortex 2) card:
make install

If you have an 8820-based (Vortex 1) card:
make install20

If you have an 8810-based (Vortex Advantage) card:
make install10


that's it

let us know if it does not work


I got this info by reading the INSTALL file contained in the package

Yes, thats the package I downloaded last night.

I know which sound card model I have ( the vortex advantage one ) but I dont understand when I should type these commands into the terminal.

I messed arround with it last night and I did a "man make" I thin and it told me that one order you could type it in was "make file directory" so I tried to type in
[$root@****$] make install ( install20, install10 ect.. none worked)
improper command or something...then I tried
[$root@****$] make au88xx* cdaureal
improper command again... so I kept plugging in stuff and eventually it got to the point where I was typing make then just dragging the file into the terminal but none of them would do anything.

But, never know, right? Ill try again once I get home.


Thank you,

-Michael

maybe you don't have make or other tools required to build something.

However you need to check the card type, not just try the different makefiles, it's important.

You can either look at the chip on the card and try to figure it out or run this command..

lspci -v |grep -iA4 aureal

give more specific error messages so we can figure out what's missing.

ugh, I cant seem to logon to this site using the default browser but I did make a little progress last night. When I get home Im going to hook my friends laptop up and see if I can copy the messages I got while trying to install and see if I can post them on here for additional help.

Btw... is there a bug with the freezing? I seem to freeze a lot while trying to search this site and a few others that used to be on my favorites.

it's the compiler to build programs, you can get it from your cd, mandrake's website, or rpmfind.net.
