Unhappy Multi-OS is that why it isnt working???


Hello everyone!
Havent been here in a long time.......Well that's what my problem is:
i have windows xp and slackware installed on the same machine(laptop)
everything works fine in windows!
nothing works in slackware?(i mean the drivers)
Atleast, i want my sound driver to work then i will worry bout others L8r.
so kan anyone help me how to make my sound driver UP and Working
i kan see my sound driver (maestro) in lsdev But dont see it in lsmod
And when i try to do "modprobe maestro" it gives me ERROR which says:

/lib/modules/2.4.29/Kernel/drivers/sound/maestro.o.gz: intit_modules: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.29/Kernel/drivers/sound/maestro.o.gz: Hint: insmod error can be caused by incorrect modules parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find error information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.29/Kernel/drivers/sound/maestro.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.29/Kernel/drivers/sound/maestro.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.29/Kernel/drivers/sound/maestro.o.gz: insmod maestro failed

Well what da heck! i dont know what to do i am new to linux i only know how to make and remove files/directories. That's it! So please anyone help me here.

Well, it's nothing to do with having more than one OS installed, that's for sure!

It does look like something's wrong with your kernel. What does "dmesg" say?

Well, it says alot of things. It's like 2-3 screens and i can not see the first 2 screens because it goes very fast and brings me to the third screen or fourth. is there any way that i can see 1 screen at a time?

Any of
Code:
dmesg | less
dmesg | more
dmesg | most
Your preference!

Also compare with
Code:
dmesg | tail
dmesg | tail -n 40

Also, what version of Slackware are you runniong? Can you run alsamixer and see if the sound chip is detected correctly and the volume isn't muted? You can read the man page for alsamixer by typing "man alsamixer" (no quotes) to see what all you can do with the alsamixer program.

Usually dmesg | tail will suffice. But as a general reference, less, more and most are pagers (i.e. that was in response to your question of how to scroll through the output) - they are exchangeable; more is the original, less has extra functionality, most has the most. "tail -n x" gives the last x lines of the piped input.
