how to install alsa drivers?
 
hi there,

sound card = cmedia 8738 cmpci

i have downloaded alsa-driver-0.9.2-fr1.i386.rpm, alsa-kernel-0.9.2-fr1_2.4.18_27.8.0.i386.rpm, alsa-lib-0.9.2-fr1.i386.rpm, alsa-utils-0.9.2-fr1.i386.rpm

i installed all of them however nothing works at all
when i run alsamixer, an error msg comes up:

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

when linux redhat 8 loads up, i don't see any process saying that alsa is starting, however when i shutdown the computer, it say alsatcl failed to start.
so basically it starts when i shutdown the computer instead of starting when i boot up the computer?

i have installed these packages and now i got no idea what to do, help please?

i haven't type any commands in terminal yet.

help please, thx

might be alsa-config,
when you install that stuff, it just adds utilities and kernel
modules for you but doesn't change any system settings.
you can depmod -a
then modprobe <modulename>
for your sound card.
but go to a prompt,
type alsa no space after alsa and hit tab afew times and
see what choices you have.

it looks like you'll need to download the source for
alsa compile it yourself. it's not that hard. alsa will
even complain to you if you're compiling the packages
in the wrong order. i think it's drivers, then libs, then utils,
but i'm not sure.

alsa installtions
 
installing src successful until i type

[root@ausmedia alsa]# modprobe snd-cmipci
/lib/modules/2.4.18-27.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-cmipci.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-27.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-cmipci.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-27.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-cmipci.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-27.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-cmipci.o: insmod snd-cmipci failed


this is what happen when i try the modprobe snd-cmpci command,
installation was very successful until i get to this part where i cannot load the module. please help someone?
