How did the website suggest that you recompile the kernel? Is it because it says
Most modern distros come with soundcore compiled as a module. You can check this in numerous ways. The easiest way is to type.
If this command returns that you have this module, then you don't need to recompile your kernel.
Well, here's modinfo soundcore on this box
root@paul:Tue Jan 27 08:51:10/home/mingdao# modinfo soundcore
modinfo: soundcore: no module by that name found
and I have the same Intel soundchip that I compiled with the ALSA drivers and instructions.
It worked just fine. Now I'm using a SoundBlaster Audigy ES that I compiled
with the ALSA instructions on that site and it works fine.
Hey, why don't you just use those instructions and try it. The worst thing that
can happen is you won't have sound...
