Sound installation.


I downloaded this alsa driver-module thing: http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ft...er-0.4.0.tar.gz

I currently have no sound and no module installed. How do I install this driver-module?

If you download the latest Alsa driver and follow the manual, you will be fine.

In most cases, theres a README file or INSTALL file, which should give the details on how to install.

That is the most recent driver-module on the site I have Kernel 2.4.25-2mdk.

Does any one know current any current sound driver-modules?

I could be wrong, but from the look of it, its not recognizing the kernel properly. Whats the kernel version running on ur machine?

do "uname -a"

Think the problem is configuration not recognizing the kernel vesion properly. If u look at the line

checking for kernel version... 0.0.0

that shouldn'e be the kernel version. Check on the configure file, what its looking for to recognize the kernel version.

I tried to download the tarball, couldn't get to the url give above. Will try again.

www.alsa-project.org has all the latest drivers. All you need is alsa-driver, alsa-lib, and alsa-utils.

Let's tackle this from the bottom up, because Mandrake hardly ever misses a sound card and I doubt what you've got is too new, what's the output of:

/sbin/lspcidrake

Or really, what's the exact sound card you've got there?

Cheers,

I really appreciate this help.

[root@ user]# /sbin/lspcidrake
bash: /sbin/lspcidrake: No such file or directory

I believe I have something like: Chameleon Audio/Modem ComboCard, something Conexant or Rockwell.

I have a '99 or '00 Hewlette-Packard.

Edit: Oh! I downloaded the oldest ALSA driver-module instead of the newest. I will try again reading the INSTALL and post what happens.

emmm, now this is making more sense, I think I err'd, I think its in /usr/sbin/lspcidrake

Or you can look through KDE's hardware blah blah thing and rip information off of there, also possibly just:

cat /proc/pci

Hopefully they didn't rename that:

cat /proc/pcidrake

What mandrake did to some of the modutils is a little inexcusable.

Cheers,

Ta da, its not in the kernel... nor is it an alsa driver, just the old balky OSS:

http://freshmeat.net/projects/riptide/

You'll probably need your kernel source installed as well as a compiler, Mandrake never puts in the former unless you chose an "everything" install and sometimes leave out the later... so rpmdrake, or whatever its called these days, is your friend.

I give this one a 4 hour hastle factor, if there isn't progress in 4 hours... rip it out and pick up a $5 ES1371 based old Ensoniq card.

Cheers,

Finegan
