modprobe won't save


I am using Asus A7N266-VM motherboard with Nvidia nforce chipset. It has built-in audio. After installing the driver, I have to type modprobe nvaudio before XMMS can start playing mp3 files, otherwise, my sound card isn't detected. But everytime after rebooting, I have to enter the same line for audio to work. Why doesn't it save?

man modprobe

It details the command and the configuration files.
You might want to look at insmod too.

man insmod

usually you can just add a line like '/sbin/modprobe nvaudio' to your /etc/init.d/rc.local (or wherever your rc.local file is - it depends on your distribution.)

thanks for the advice. The first one, insmod didn't work, but the second one did the trick.

this is not a resolution

mcleodnine,

you should test your advice before giving, because i gave your try a run and fux0red my whole box (in other words had to reinstall all of the OS)(even made an attempt to rescue).

at the end of boot up i got

i810_audio timed out waiting for codec 1 analog ready

then nothing happened, boot froze on me

I beleive the advice was correct for the nvaudio modules and redhat (other people have reported the same issue).

Are you using the i810_audio module or the nvaudio module???

Unhappy the difference ??

payback,

You may be right, but the stuff posted here is not a resolution, and it is very frustrating, when one applies advice, and cannot recover system after reboot. I am ignorant to a lot of the inner workings of the linux platform, but I have been good about learning, and deciphering the good from the bad.

Anywayz, yes I am using i810_audio (unless it was removed from the system when I installed the nividia drivers). I don't know. I gave up the other day, and switched backed to windows for a bit, until I can gather my thoughts, and get linux to be functional, not just semi-functional.

When I added the line '/sbin/modprobe nvaudio' to my rc.local file, it caused the boot up to freeze just near the end. There was a long message describing the search for the i810_audio module, then about two or three lines later, bam!!, the freeze up. Does this happen when a module can't be found? Is the module there?

FYI: I am on an MSI K7N420 Pro motherboard, onboard everything, AMD Athlon 2100 XP cpu, and running Redhat 7.3.
