Help-2.4.33.7+v4l2patch=nosound(sb vibra 16)


Hi,
I req. some help. Slack 11(2.4 kernel).Ali1543 chipset,K6II 450. Recompiled after patching to 2.4.33.7 and v4l2(kraxel). Grub (n RPM) used. Can't get my ISA SB Vibra 16 sound card to work in the new kernel (OK in orig. kernel).Looked at 2 how-to's, but did not follow all the steps to the T...but have reinstalled alsa after booting to the new kernel:upgradepkg --reinstall /home/alsa.....(the alsa tgz copied from slack cd to /home first).These are the steps i differed from DrOzz' guide:

Now Its Time To Install Your New Kernel~!
--------------------------------------------

1. Remove the following links:
rm -rf /boot/System.map
rm -rf /boot/vmlinuz

2. Then copy the newly created kernel and system.map to /boot
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-x.x.x
cp /usr/src/linux/System.map /boot/System.map-x.x.x

3. Make the new links:
ln -s /boot/vmlinuz-x.x.x /boot/vmlinuz
ln -s /boot/System.map-x.x.x /boot/System.map

4.Edit Your /etc/grub.conf file (or menu.lst)
Exit and Save grub.conf
type "/sbin/grub-install"


My steps:
1.Using konqueror i followed only step 2.
2.For 4th step, only menu.lst was modified.

1.Am i correct?

2.dmesg using original kernel (last lines):

"isapnp" is not there in 2nd case.
In /lib/modules/2.4.33.3/kernel,there is a folder called "sound" ; but in /lib/modules/2.4.33.7vl2media/kernel, the "sound" folder was missing (even tho'i did not change anything in the SOUND part of the original .config file).I started investigating when alsaconf was terminated quite fast (i think w/o the legacy isa card screen coming up).I copied the "sound" folder from former location to the latter location. Now, when i alsaconf, the sound card (sb16) can be selected, but i get "No legacy cards found" (Even when either yes/no is selected to "try all poss. comb. of irq/dma) "
One more "sound" folder at /lib/modules/2.4.33.7vl2media/kernel/drivers is present in both cases.I have recompiled kernel atleast 6 times and in all cases pci_hotplug was not deselected in the .config file (i hope this is not a factor???).

3.If i want to upgrade to 2.4.34 kernel .Are the foll. steps correct:
1.D/l patches 2.4.33.1,2.4.33.2,2.4.33.3
2.patch -p1 -R < ../patch-2.4.33.3
3.patch -p1 -R < ../patch-2.4.33.2
4.patch -p1 -R < ../patch-2.4.33.1
5.patch -p1 < ../patch2.4.34

Thanks

You should not remove the old patches. kernel patches are cumulative -to get from 2.4.33 to 2.4.33.4 you need to apply each patch in order and leave them (no -R).

After compiling new kernels I have always recompiled the modules, including the alsa-driver modules for the 2.4 kernels.

Thanks Guys.
gnashley,i asked because when i patched 2.4.33.7 to 2.4.34 ,kernel compile did not work. Will try my method (and post the result here) if i am first successful in getting alsa to work for the recompiled kernel 2.4.33.7vl2media.
vyankey,where do i get the alsa 1.0.11 source? D/l alsa-driver-1.0.11_2.4.33.3-i486-1.gz from a link in slackware site...this isn't the source, isn't it (it has same size as the .tgz on the cd)?
Or will the latest alsa do (if yes, won't the libs,etc. have to be the latest)?

I tried putting "isapnp" in /etc/rc.local....no difference in dmesg....maybe i have to put options like conffile for isapnp??? Anyone?
BTW (for a noobie's benefit), after applying the kraxel patch and compiling, i got only 2 errors:in /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/video, in bttv-driver.c (i think) there was a syntax error ( had to delete 2 dots- no mention of this in .rej file). In bttv-if.c, had to manually delete last 2 lines (also syntax error,i think). Of course, all .rej's files were manually checked/compared first.

I got mine from the source CD. You should be able to download the source from one of the Slackware mirrors.

Thanks once again vyankey. Success (thanks to a post by a member "flyfishin".)
For benefit of newbies:
1.Boot from newly compiled kernel.
1.D/l (or find it in cd4 or5) alsa-driver folder ( 1.0.11 source) from ftp://dl.xs4all.nl/pub/mirror/slackw...11.0/source/l/ (thanks to Bruno from scotfinnie forums) to /home (no need to compile alsa-utils, alsa-oss, etc.).
2.cd to above directory.Untar the bz2 file.(tar xvjf alsa-driver-1.0.11.tar.bz2)
3.At the command line type: sh alsa-driver.SlackBuild
4.Step 3 creates a new alsa-driver....tgz file in /tmp. Go to /tmp and do an upgradepkg --reinstall alsa-driver...tgz
5.alsaconf/alsamixer/alsactl restore.
Regards
