just a quick question about kernel compiling and alsa:
i just compiled and installed modules for alsa according to the instructions @ alsa's website for my sound card (cmi 8738). when i do a modinfo snd-cmipci, i get a return with a bunch of info, which from what i understand means the module is present in the kernel. is this true?
i've been going on the assumption that it is true, so now what i want to do is compile the modules into the kernel. will following the instructions in DaOne's kernel compiling guide (located in Linux - Distributions > Slackware) do this for me?
totally a newbie question i know, but i just want to make sure i'm not going through a recompile for nothing, when there might be an easier way to do it.
thanks in advance.
