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.

I'm sorry to be posting another alsa request but I have ben fighting alsa on RedHat 9.0 for a month now. I have gone through the documentation on the alsa home page and tons of others. alsa works great on my redhat 8.0 box and I had it installed in less than a day.
No one seems to give mention that on RedHat 9.0 that when you recompile your kernel to have sound module enabled "m" and the rest as no "n" as suggested. Then try to compile alsa with src rpm or just the source that your kernel-tree doesn't reflect the state of the installed kernel.
I did this.
$ make mrproper
$ cp /boot/config-2.4.20-18.9 .config
$ make oldconfig
$ make dep
$ chmod 777 /dev/audio*
$ chmod 777 /dev/dsp*
$ chmod 777 /dev/mi*
$ chmod 777 /dev/sequencer*
$ rpm -ivh alsa-driver-0.9.4-fr2.src.rpm
$ rpmbuild -bb --define "kernel 2.4.20-18.9" --target i686
and installed the rpms.
I repeated the process for alsa-lib and alsa-utils.
when I ran
modprobe snd-emu10k1;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
most everything worked except 4 modules.
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-18.9/kernel/sound/snd-gus-lib.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-18.9/kernel/sound/snd-seq.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-18.9/kernel/sound/snd-usb-audio.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-18.9/kernel/sound/snd-vx-lib.o
My alsa mixer works and I have good sound!
Have I missed somthing with my make xconfig or a pemission?
