Unhappy ALSA problem


I have just installed ALSA using the quick install guide. Problem is that I can't modprobe.
it shows....

[flikmy@Mycomp flikmy]$ modprobe
bash: modprobe: command not found

My modules.conf is...

******modules.conf********
alias eth0 8139too
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci


# alias sound-slot-0 via82cxxx_audio
# post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
# pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

***********************************

I'm really not sure what is wrong and I can't listen to any sounds or music.

The version of ALSA i'm installing is 1.0.0rc2.
The file i used is alsa-driver-1.0.0rc2.tar.bz2. (Is this the only file I need to install ALSA?)

Kernal installed is now 2.4.23 with Red Hat 9

The sound card on my Comp is an internal via8232... i think.

Please help me.... Thanks in advance

"modprobe not found" indicates that it isn't finding modprobe. Make sure you're root when you run it. Otherwise, do: "find / -name modprobe" to find where it is

Don't take my word for it (I haven't managed to make my soundcard work yet and I still know nothing about Linux), but I believe you need at least to install also the lib and utils files.

Better check first this page, where I got that idea from:
