error alsa oss compatibility modules already in kernel


Hi guys!

I have this anoying problem.

I recompiled my kernel (currently 2.6.5 but I have had the same problem with earlier kernels) When I started up slack I didnīt have sound so did a lsmod which showed that snd_i8x0 (My sound driver)

So I modprobed it and got sound. Next went to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and upt snd_i8x0 in there so it would load on boot.

So now my sound works fine but right at the end of the boot it says somthing like loading alsa oss compatibility modules and then fatal error and that oss_snd_mixer (Sorry I am not sure of the exact name) is already in the kernel.

I went to hotplug black list and black listed this module but it doesnīt seem to stop it

Where is it loading from? Or what am I doing wrong?


Thanks in advance!

Adam

Look in your /etc/rc.d directory for (among others):

* Executable rc.alsa script which could be trying to load the compat

* Lines in rc.local (if any) which may have been added to load the compat


Personally, I prefer not to compile sound into the kernel. I only enable sound support (leaving out both ALSA and OSS). This way I can always get the latest drivers from the ALSA site anytime I like and compile them specifically for my hardware. Just presenting another way of doing it.

Thanks 187807 I will have a look in those files and see if I can sort it out. Just out of interest, what do you get out of downloading the lastest drivers and compliling them for your hardware??

I donīt use 5.1 or anything as of yet.

I probably get no actual benefit at all from doing it the way I do. It's not like I'm using some kind of outlandish soundcard and/or features (SB Live! Value is what I've got).
