Exclamation Problem with installing audio driver


Hello guys, good evening.

Two days ago I posted this from the other forum but I'm verry disappointed because no one iss replying my second question. Ok first I will tell you the scenario.

My first post:
Quote:
I got here an ASUS P5PE-VM which has a Linux Drivers. My motherboard has only 3 drivers for Linux (audio, graphics, and network). For now I want to solve my problem regarding my audio driver. I'll post my other problems with my graphic and network drivers after this.

I put the CD of my ASUS and browse to the audio driver folder and the file name of the driver is "alsa-driver-0.9.ladi.tgz". I read the "README.txt" and in the installation part it's said that there are three basic commands needed to build the AC97 ALSA driver are summarize here.

I know the installation is not successful since I see some errors like "no", "Permission denied", and "Operation not permitted".

But what I don't know is, is/are the MARKS that indicates if the installation is successful. Can you give me some MARKS if the installation is successful or complete?

I don't know what I'm going to install seems it is looking for some libraries to complete the installation.
One member replied to my post and this was what he posted:
Quote:
you shouldn't need to install drivers for your audio card, they should work out of the box in ubuntu (when i looked up what audio it has), you probably just need to adjust the mixer settings

to answer your other question
Code:
make: *** [compile] Error 1
means something went wrong, most of the time in linux, only error messages are output, not successful
My second post:
Quote:
The drivers for Linux are already included in the CD. So why I shouldn't install the driver of my audio?

Sorry for the newbie question but I'm really novice to Linux.
After that no even one is replying my question.

Hope someone will help me with this. Waiting for your replies guys.

Take care and God bless.

The drivers for your soundcard are already included in the kernel. To see if they are loaded, type the following in a terminal:
Code:
lsmod | grep intel8x0
If not, you could try loading them as root with
Code:
modprobe snd_intel8x0

Hello mdg, good evening.

Thanks for replying mdg. So here's the result:
Quote:
snd_intel8x0 35356 3
snd_ac97_codec 101028 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_pcm 78596 3 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd 56996 17 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_rawmidi, snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device
snd_page_alloc 11400 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
So how will I know if the driver already loaded?

and

How will I know as well if the driver is not loaded?

Can you give me some MARKS that indicates the driver is loaded or not.

Take care and God bless.

The drivers are loaded. The module is "snd_intel8x0", which shows up in the first line of code in your post.

If the driver was not loaded, the grep command would not return anything (no output).

Ahh ok I see. There's no output when we type the command. The kernel holds some drivers and it will automatically install during the installation. Nice!

For instance: What if a distro doesn't have drivers for my motherboard. What should I do?

Take care and God bless.
