emu10k1 compiling anyone ??


hello.
I'm trying to compile the emu10k1 drivers for my sb live card.
i had to install my kernel headers from the distro cd + the "make" tool.
when i run the "make" command in the emu10k1 directory i get this error:
grep: usr/src/linux/include/version.h
grep: usr/src/linux/include/autoconf.h

makefile:43: /makefile : no such file or directory
make : *** no rule to make target '/makefile'. stop

the kernel headers were installed in usr/include/linux when i installed that package...

how do i proceed ? move the files /create new directory ?
any advice b4 i do something rash would be appreciated...

cheers.

Have you tryed?

Have you tryed using the source for your kernel to make a module for the sb live card. I foud the kernals I have used have a module for the sblive.

you had best findout from someone who knows what their doing better than me what to do next.

I don't know how Mandrake takes care of it's modules, but like said above, it should be starndard and you shouldn't be needing to worry about anything else than uncommenting a line in your modules file. I'm sorry that I can't tell you which file exactly as mine differs, but try your /etc directory and maybe modules.conf or something of that sort. Someone who's used Mandrake for a while will surely tell you. But you definately shouldn't be needing to compile the emu10k1 module.

emu10k1 brain teasero.k. thanks guys.

o.k.
thanks guys.
here's my complete novice understanding of the proceedure.
download latest snapshot of emu10k1. tarball.
un-tar to new directory emu10k1 [fine so far]
run "make' command from terminal local host emu10k1 etc .
that's where it ends...
the tutorials i have and the sb live docs tell me where to copy 2 files that should be generated called emu10k1.o & ac97_codec.o but that is not happening.
if i get these files i just make install [as root]
add new reference to driver in /etc/conf.modules

alias sound emu10k1.the module should be autoloaded...
it was suggested i can edit the "makefile" in the emu10k1 directory and manually override it...i don't know what that means tho'.
i did try to change a few lines regarding modversions + includedir but no luck [from a tut. on linuxnewbie.org].

surprisingly not loosing my cool ...yet...
but i might investigate ALSA drivers as well (an alternative to emu10k1???)

anyone else got the fix for me??
TIA

the saga

i installed kernel 2.4.3-20mdk.
package manager sent it to /lib/modules...

i was expecting it to go to usr/src/linux?
anyway...
i found emu10k1.tr.gz in /lib/modules/2.4.3-20/kernel/drivers/sound
can i just untar + compile from there...
not sure what's going on as any advice i get is telling me that packages should be installed to */whatever directory but the files show up elsewhere.
tried running /compiling again, no luck.
so close yet so far...the joys of newbiesm...!

what now ?

As root try doing "modprobe emu10k1" with mandrake 8.0 I think you'll find that the module your after is already compiled.

Try the modprobe this way....

/sbin/modprobe emu10k1

The emu10k1 sound driver/module is quite standard for an install. You can look into ALSA but if you have a genuine Creative Live! there's no need. I also have a Live! and the emu10k1 is great. It has to be there...Perhaps do a search from root like: find | grep emu10k1
That should bring up a bunch of related directories and files.
Good Luck in the ongoing saga, it doesn't end.

P.S. a beer does sound good...

i finally found + downloaded kernel-source-2.4.3-20.mdk.i586.rpm [wasn't on
the distro disk].
it installed to : usr/src/linux but not until i got a "dependant error?"
a bunch of other rpm's were needed ( i found most of them (was it necessary
to get them tho'?)
i also got an updated emu10k1 tarball from opensource creative (3rd new
version / file in 2 days??)

i checked - i am running 2.4.3-20mdk.
i have the soundblaster live value card ( it uses the emu driver under
windows).
i tried editing the makefile in the emu10k1 directory =
KERNELVERSION:= 2.4.3-20mdk
KERNELSOURCE:=/usr

and still no luck...
i'm getting errors to the effect of no such file / directory (after about 6
lines of stuff like audio.c audio.o etc)
i'm being told that the module is a standard install on mandrake 8.0 but i
haven't located it ...
thanks for yr help so far , i'm sure i'm getting closer to the solution...

just get a new kernel from ftp.kernel.org and compile emu10k1 into the kernel. and thats it, no messing with any other files to download.
(to get the newest kernels you have to just dl them and configure them yourself)
