soundblaster audigy and the newbie


i've read through a few threads here, and i'm just not following clearly.

i need to get my soundblaster audigy working, and have no idea where to start.

i have downloaded the emu10k1 driver, but have no idea what to do with it.

any help with this advanced windows user turned pre-school linux user would be greatly appreciated

thanks in advance

[root@bluedoom emu10k1]# make
make -Cscripts
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/emu10k1/scripts'
cc -I/usr/src/linux-2.4/include get_version.c -o get_version
make -f /root/emu10k1/scripts/Makefile.get_options -C /usr/src/linux-2.4 get_version_target
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3'
**
** /usr/src/linux-2.4/.config is missing
** if this is a custom kernel then you need to run make config in /usr/src/linux-2.4.
** if this is a distribution kernel then you need to copy the correct .config file to /usr/src/linux-2.4.
** for RedHat kernels the .config file is one of the /usr/src/linux-2.4/configs/*.config
**
make[2]: *** [get_version_target] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3'
make[1]: *** [get_options] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/emu10k1/scripts'
make: *** [opts] Error 2


that's what i'm getting..............

In Redhat, they have a lot of .config files in /usr/src/linux/configs. You'll have to find the one that matches your processor and copy that to the /usr/src/linux. EX: "cp /usr/src/linux/configs/******.config /usr/src/linux/.config That worked for me in 7.3. After that, you should be able to compile no problem.

That is weird. I'll try to look for an answer. Anyone setup an Audigy in Redhat before that's seen this error???

I don't know if it will make a difference or not but are you compiling as root? If not, you may want to try. You never know!

You may need to update your kernel to at least 2.4.18-6, someone please tell me if I'm wrong.

okay, i solved that problem, i get no errors throughout the entire install process, until i check it. i get this:

[root@bluedoom sbin]# modprobe emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod emu10k1 failed
[root@bluedoom sbin]#
