modprobe emu10k1 = getting errors


My kernel version is 2.4.18 and the emu10k1 sound driver is newest. Still I get errors while I try modprobe emu10k1 command:

/lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod emu10k1 failed

Does the driver support Sound Blaster Audigy 1? The driver is the version which came with my kernel version (2.4.18). I have tried to compile that sound driver but it needs my kernel source code and I have problems with it. I have unpacked the source code to /usr/src and added the kernel location to emu10k1 modules config file but it complains me to run make config in my kernel source tree although I have done it. What is wrong in this driver module? If this driver doesn't support my sound card which does?

You need to "modprobe soundcore" before you load the actual driver for your soundcard. Give that a go, see what happens.

Soundcore module loads correctly but that doesn't help. I get the same errors which I get before loading soundcore. Thanks however now I have at least soundcore installed Do I need to load some other modules too before loading emu10k1?

Hmm. I didnt think you did. As root run the command "lspci" and post the results here. Can help decide which module you should actually be loading.

Edit : I just had a thought. What distro and version are you running? Is it one that uses ALSA or not?

My distro is Debian 3.0 R1 Woody and I don't even know what ALSA is. How can I copy text from bash console? I'm too lazy to write lspci results here

you will also want to upgrade your kernel to 2.4.20 at least and add support for it in the kernel and recompiling it

or you can keep the 2.4.18 kernel and just download the alsa drivers (which are alot newer than the ones in 2.4.18).

www.alsa-project.org

if you look at the soundcard matrix you will find soundcard specific installation instructions.
