Angry via combo driver

Hi guys,

I have recently installed Mandrake 10.0 CE. Everything seems to be working fine except for the flippin' sound. To rectify the issue I downloaded the viaudiocombo driver from 'via arena'. I followed the instructions but recieved the following...

root@localhost Documents]# rpm --rebuild viaudiocombo-2.3-1.src.rpm
Installing viaudiocombo-2.3-1.src.rpm
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.42030

+ /usr/bin/gzip -dc /usr/src/RPM/SOURCES/viaudiocombo-2.3.tar.gz

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.60929 (%install)

RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.60929 (%install)
[root@localhost Documents]#

I am using a ECS K7VMM2 motherboard with onboard sound.
I have installed all of the developement section from the CDs.

Any ideas folks? The rest of the system is running wonderfully, i'm only using WinXP for playing music now!!!
