edit modules


Hi

I have just compiled alsa codec.
I use MSI motherboard using Via 8233.

I am asked to edit /etc/modules.conf , but don't know what it is really, and don't want to do it wrong.

Can somebody help !

This is the information i have for the soundcore

#alias snd-card-0 snd-via8233
#options snd-via833 snd_index=0 snd_id="Via8233"

also found

alias char-major-14 soundcore...

Cheers.

My portion of modules.conf
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
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

important thing is to have the file snd-via82xx.o in directory /lib/modules/your_kernel_version/sound/
if you do not have such file maybe you have got snd-via8233.o
so just change the line 'alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx' to 'alias snd-card-0 snd-via8233'

and remeber that after installation the everything is MUTED! you need immediately use mixer to hear anything :)

Thanks for your reply

Sorry about it , but as a newbie, i am a little confused about what to do.

Should a change something directly in /etc/modules ? as advised in my readme "modules" files.If yes how?? i try several times but but cannot get any result!! ( i even try with Kedit !!)

Also have not find any /lib/modules/my-kernel-version/sound/

but /lib/modules/my-kernel-version/alsa

Also found snd-card-via8233.o.gz ...i tried to gunzip it but don't see any change.

Sorry about it but try to explain it as if i was an idiot ( will help really ;-)

Cheers

You need to be root to do any changes in modules.conf and gunzipping into the /lib/modules/.... directory
I'm pretty sure you have got the warnings about it.
The location of module doesn't matter as long as it is in proper /lib/modules/your_kernel_version/ dir or subdir.

Hello dorian33 !

Thank you for your reply.

My trouble is to make any changes to modules.conf.

When i use the "more"command this is what i get :

alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-o via82cxxc_audio

I understand i should add some lines to get things working, but don't know how ! !

What command should i use to add those lines to the ones above?

By now i'm lost and confused ( when i said before i don't see any change when trying to gunzipping , the only result was that the file was gunzipped ... but don't make any change in adding lines to modules.conf)

Also tell me more about the warnings ;-)

Great thanks for everything!
