dropline2.8, kernel 2.6.7(package) = install alsa after each rebooting:(


Because upgrading to dropline2.8 requires a kernel of 2.6.x, I installed the kernel package of 2.6.7 from the second cd of slk10. Now I have got not only a new kernel, but also ton of problems.

Using the new kernel the dropline-installer worked fine, and the only problem was that each time I wanted to enjoy my new gnome, the computer alway complained "/dev/dsp no such file or directory".

So I installed the alsa package inside the /testing folder, logged out and logged in, the sound was simply there, and DLG2.8 worked. I was happy with that, but its too early. Soon I found that after each rebooting, the sound would be away, and Gnome could not be started. The sound would be there only if I uninstall the alsa package and re-install it again!!!!What is that?

I have stored the lsmod results and compared them, found there are a little difference:

Situation 1: JUST AFTER ALSA INSTALLATION(WITH SOUND)

I got 3 modules which are not in situation 2:
Code:
	nls_utf8                1792    1  
	isofs                     30008  1 
	zlib_inflate           21248  1 isofs

Situation 2: AFTER REBOOT(NO SOUND)

I got 1 module which is not in situation 1:
Code:
	snd_bt87x              12616  1
So is it a kind of module missing problem?

I am not sure but maybe compile the alsa driver by myself could solve the problem. This will lead to another problem: I have installed 3 packages in order to use the 2.6.7 kernel:
kernel-generic-2.6.7-i486-1.tgz
kernel-headers-2.6.7-i386-1.tgz
kernel-modules-2.6.7-i486-2.tgz
But when I was trying to compile the driver, the computer always said that is could not find proper headers for kernel 2.6.7. I DO installed the package, what could be the problem?

The problem has been solved, just uninstalled the alsa package coming with the 2nd slk cd, and compiled it by myself. After rebooting everything seems fine.
