Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

es 1371 : version v0.30 time....
pci : found irq 10 for device 00:0f.0
pci : the same irq used for device 00:04.5
es 1371 : found chip vendor
es 1371 : found es1371 rev8 at io 0xcc0 irq 10
es 1371 : features joy...
ac 97_codec : AcC97 audio codec , id : 0x4352 : 0x5913 (cirrus logic cs 4297 A revA)
What i wanted to ask is :
1 Why does line "ac97 codec" shows up after i uncomment 1371 module if i have a sound blaster on ?
2 Can those two pci lines have something to do with a conflict (meaning two devices on same irq ) ?
Previously i asked about Kernel compiling information for i thought it was the last thing to do to get my sound card work on Slackware , man i was vain . I guess i'm far away in space to get this one done . Love Slak
it's a configuration file that lists the modules that the kernel will load for a given function - if i remember correctly, the line is
alias char-major-14 es1371
i think that's right. (someone correct me if i'm wrong!) the modules.conf file is located in the /etc directory. just use any text editor to find the line in the file - it's probably either commented out with a # or turned off - like this
alias char-major-14 off
#alias char-major-14 es1371
you just need to make sure that the correct modules is specified, and that should be all you need to get the sound working.
and also i was told in another recent thread to chmod 755 /dev/mixer and /dsp but when i did i didn't get it to work . You know what? I remember a thread about not chmod 777 for being a serious security hole ( by SICKBOY), i did chmod 777 and it worked . Thanks a lot . I guess now i hope i can say goodbye to all other distros.
chmod 777 is the command to set the mode on any file for full permissions to all users - it's not a good thing to have set to an important sbin executable, but it's not a serious security problem for an output device like /dev/dsp or /dev/mixer.
