emu10k1


...when I run "make" emu10k1.o is not created. I have researched all the messages about installing this driver, and MAN why is it so problematic!! WHy would that file not be generated? I am following both the readme with the driver, and the NHF form linux newbie, and my book. Can't puzzle this out two retries from scratch, no erro messages, i just ls emu10k1.o to see if it is there.

Yes, I have the source in there...I havn't done anything else to get it running, except start over from scratch...Per the instructions I copied src/linux2x -kernel-i586-config to the linux.config file...., this was the last recent hurdle actually, thiose files weren't even in my system a few days ago.
and I wonder if I should try a different kernel config file there are several? a couple i386, with different extensions, a couple i586, etc. The one indicated in my system is i586, and I just used the plain one to copy into kernel/.config.

okay, i am slightly confused as what you are doing to get the drivers working so bare with me if i give you wrong advice. its been a while since i got my card working so i can't quite remember the procedure. i assume you are trying to get the drivers from creative to work? if not then ignore this and tell me.

The file you are copying seems to be a configuration file to use when compiling a new kernel. Where did you get the file from?
The only thing you really need to do with your kernel is make sure that the only sound support that you have compiled in is the very first option in the sound menu. you don't need anything else.

here's what to do type the following at the command prompt

Code:
bash-2.05$  su
password: <enter the root password>
bash-2.05# cd /usr/src/linux/
bash-2.05# make menuconfig
if all goes well a menu will appear over the command line. go down the list of options to the bit called sound. highlight and press enter and make sure that the only option there that has a check next to it is the very top one 'Sound Card Support' and then there should be one called 'OSS Sound Modules' that is also needed.

if they are here then you're ok and needn't do anything more complicated to the kernel. otherwise you'll have to select them and compile the kernel. check else where for that.

move the emu10k tar.gz files to /tmp and unzip them with

Code:
tar zxvf <<filename>>.tar.gz

go into the new folders and follow the install instructions which should be basically
Code:
./configure
make
(as root) make install
if there are no errors then the driver will be made and installed into the relevant place.

now try to get it to run by typing
Code:
insmod emu10k.o
if that works fine then you should be able to play sound.




hope that was insulting your intelligence any. i have no idea what you have done so far or where the thing is going wrong

give more details if this don't get it working

unresolved symbols

I did what you said as far as make menu config...the output seemed a little different.... yet I got several unresolved symbols at insmod emu10k1.o...
register sound dsp, ac97_probe_codec...and a few others.

i think it might be the bios settings

in the creative readme, doesn't it say to select 'non plug and play operating system' (or what ever is similar there)? have you done that

that could be the problem and has messed things up with me before
