Conexant Sound Driver not working in FC3.


ALSA library has not included Conexant Riptide Audio sound support in it. Other than that there is a website called linuxant. com where conexant audio drivers can be downloaded. I have been having problems compiling the Audio driver in FC 3, and every time it comes up with kernel problems. Is there any one who could download and create an RPM package for conexant audio for FC3. I have a 2.6 kernel. Thanks a lot for your help guys.

What manufacturer and model is this motherboard?

I see a 56k modem also there from lspci......

EDIT: nevermind the modem, i see the driver here > http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/

Quote:
The Conexant Riptide Driver package contains Linux drivers for the Conexant (Rockwell) RipTide Audio/Communication Controller found in RipTide HCF and RipTide HSF modems. It is an OSS-compatible sound driver. For the HCF modems, this driver is required as well as the HCF driver. For HSF modems, this driver is optional to get soundcard and game port functionality.
Quote link > http://freshmeat.net/projects/riptide/


Quote:
If you have a RipTide HCF modem (127A:4321 or 127A:4331), you need to install *both* the RIPTIDE and HCF drivers, otherwise the modem will *not* work.

The motherboard make isn't relevant when it's an OEM like from HP or Compaq or Dell.

Did you try the drivers at the links I posted?

yeah, i have tried to install it from the source, it doesn't help. I don't know much about kernels, but i think it is not compatible with the new 2.6 kernels. Whever i compile it i get a kernel module missing errors. It says things like " modversions.h" missing. When I do LOCATE MODVERSIONS.H in bash, i find that file. So maybe i should find and install the kernel source?

You can download the kernel source rpm from http://download.fedora.redhat.com

Maybe a symbolic link to modversions.h from where ever the installer is looking into will fix the problem too.

Have you tried using yum to install the drivers?

Sorry to ressurect a thread, but when using the installer (Suse 10 system) on a HP Pavilion pc, It said that it was designed for a 2.4 kernal, not 2.6. Does anyone have drivers that will work on a 2.6 kernel?
