Hey when I install slack I have no problems with my sound... (Nforce2) when installed the 2.6.2 kernel and compiled it.... and now everytime I start my computer up it complains that it is missing modules and this is a fatal error for alsa. When I startup X and load xmms it works find but as soon as I try to load more than one program that uses the sound it gives me an error that its not available.
I donīt know much about alsa but was kind of under the impression that is job was īsound serverī so more than one program could make sound at the same time.
I guess its not working!
Sorry I donīt have the exact modules its complaining about but I am at work... if it helps I can put add to the post tomorrow.
yeah. Everything related to sound is the best I think. The alsa drivers get updated all the time so you want them to be modules anyway (so you can just replace the modules w/o recompiling the whole kernel).
