is mp3 support included in this?
There ought to be a big flashing link on the Red Hat website that explains this one...

Red Hat chose not to include MP3 support in the system (for things like xmms, etc.) because of the noises that the holders of certain patents covering some of the MP3 technology were making. Red Hat's pockets aren't deep but maybe deep enough to become a target of a lawsuit. So... you'll have to go to freshrpms.net and download replacement versions of those applications. Since you know how to futz around with rpms now, this ought to be a piece of cake, eh?. :-)

Have a good one,

Rick

Thumbs up

Just wanted to put up a HUGE "Thanks so ever freakin' much!"
I fought and fought and fought with ALSA to get it working, and your help was so much appreciated, it was the only thing that actually got things working! Thanks again for the informative post.

yet im back with another problem with sound. it maybe simple and im just missing something....
-
i ran up2date on redhat and it updated the kernel and the kernel source

2.4.18-27.8.0

i did the symbolic link from the kernel source folder : linux
Code:
ln -s linux-2.4.18-27.8.0 linux
then i tried to compile using:
Code:
./configure --withcards=via82xx -with-sequencer=yes && make &&make install

::a whole bunch of non-error stuff here::

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.9.0rc8a/acore'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/lib/modules/2.4.18-26.8.0/build/include/linux/config.h', needed by `memalloc.o'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.9.0rc8a/acore'
make: *** [compile] Error 1
i can see that alsa is looking at my old kernel. notice that the error includes 2.4.18-26 when the kernel i want sound in is 2.4.18-27. HELP?

So it seems that the 2.4.18-26 kernel is the one that's actually running. Alsa builds against the currently running kernel. Is the system configured to use the new kernel? I.e., did it download a new kernel, modules, etc., and set the system up to use them by tweaking the bootloader, make the correct /lib/modules directory, etc. and have you rebooted to the new kernel? If all it did was download a new set of kernel sources, you probably have some compiling to do and some additional stuff to add to /etc/lilo.conf (or whatever if you use grub).

Hope this helps,

Rick

Still around but not visiting as frequently (probably a relief to a few folks :-) ) as other things have been preoccupying me.

Frankly, I was never able to tell just what tudo's problem was. (Well, his system's problem and not tudo's.) It sure looked like some sort of compilation problem went undetected and modprobe couldn't find some basic hooks that were needed or the install step went awry (all those snd.o problems). Would have been helpful to see, for example, the modules.conf entries.

Can you post some logs or console listings containing the errors you're seeing? And modules.conf?

Caveat: I'm still running with 0.9.0.rc7. (I know, I know, ancient code. Gotta be at least two months old.) Hopefully the differences between that and 0.9.2 aren't that great.

Later...

Rick

alsa problems

Hi!
I saw that u gave some help to someone who was trying to install alsa.
I have a bit of a problem with the same thing.

I followed the following instructions:

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...module=ali5451


and everything went ok until I typed

modprobe snd-ali5451;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss


where I get the following output

/lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: unresolved symbol schedule_work
/lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o failed

/lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod snd-seq-oss failed


Do you have any idea about how to solve this?

I am posting this to the forum also, hoping that someone can give me any help.

Many thanks!

Re: alsa problems

Sure there weren't any errors reported during the `make' and/or `make install' phases?

What does `lsmod' report? You should see `soundcore', `snd', and a bunch that begin with `snd-'. Based on your posted error messages I doubt that you'll see those `snd-' modules. But I think the others ought to be there. (Wonder if there is something amiss with the basic sound support?)
