Installing ALSA Drivers


Now insert the modules into the kernel. What does this mean?

modprobe snd-cmipci;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

Afer I type the modprobe string I get :

modprobe: Can't locate module snd-cmipci
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-pcm-oss
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-mixer-oss
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-seq-oss

Am I doing something wrong?

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...&module=cmipci

Is the tutorial I am using.....

I did EXACTLY what it says but im confused what it means by Insert them into the Kernel..

Does modprobe do that?

Or am I wrong?

Thanks much for any help

You're right in saying modprobe inserts the modules into the kernel. What modprobe is saying is that is can't find those modules in /lib/modules/{kernel version}. Did you run 'make install' after compiling alsa-driver? The way the tutorial sets it up the commands 'make' and 'make install' will be executed regardless if the './configure' command messes. Same if 'make' screws up; 'make install' will try to install the modules. Instead of running './configure --with-cards=cmipci --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install' try './configure --with-cards=cmipci --with-sequencer=yes && make && make install'. This will execute each command only if the previous command was successful. Hope this works!

Yeah I ran through the tutorial step by step no variences I am using RH9

I tried the string :
/configure --with-cards=cmipci --with-sequencer=yes && make && make install
like you said then searched for the then modprobed with no luck.

is it possible my modules.conf is messed up?

hmmph

Try looking in /lib/modules/{kernel-version}/kernel/sound/pci. Is your soundcard module listed there? It should be named snd-cmipci.o or something like that. By the way, what kernel version are you using? Did you compile the kernel yourself?
