sound module


hi there!
I have updated my kernel to 2.4.19 and it is pretty cool!
But here is problem:
I have oss drivers installed so to have sound I have to:modprobe i810_audio;
When I recompiled kernel I builted sound right into kernel and I couldn't unistall OSS now (because you have to unload soundmodules first), so I have recompiled kernel again and included sound as module. How Can I start it now!
My sound: integrated i815 chipset audio ( in linux it also maybe i810, don't matter)
My questions:
1. What is the name of the module of my soundcard. Maybe someone knows. or where can I find the name of it, because nothing is written in Help
2. How to unload some module from memory?
3. when i had sound builted in kernel, I couldn't load more then one sound. i think it is of OSS

???
thnx

PS. sorry for mistakes and some stupid question, I was ina hurry

1. The name of the module for the card should be i810_audio, you've got it already.

2. rmmod modulename (the device has to be unused, ethernet card ifconfig'ed down, no proggie accessing the soundcard, etc.)

3. Explain that again?

Cheers,

Finegan

Nah, if you rmmod something it just unloads it from the kernel, the actual file, located in, or at least this should be where it is: /lib/modules/2.4.X?/kernel/drivers/sound/modulename.o stays the same.

What's the whole error, does it look like this:

root@orwell:/home/fin# modprobe i810_audio
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod i810_audio failed

no access to /dev/dsp may just be a file permission issue. The specific error is important.

Cheers,

As I could see /dev/dsp owner is 'sys', not root?
And I cannot change it to 'root' ....
I have compiled kernel and included soundsupport into kernel
but still cannot load more then one sound. I think it because I had OSS drivers installed before. What if I will remove verything 'connected' to OSS from my PC?

???

Nautilus, what do you mean you cannot load more than 1 sound? Do you have 2 soundcards and want to load them both, or do you mean you can't play more than 1 sound at the same time, or do you mean that the you can't compile 1 soundcard into your kernel and module one as well, or what?

I am not quite sure what you mean there buddy, but the OSS drivers really shouldn't be effecting your new kernel since they "should" have only been applied to the last kernel (or at least this would be my guess from experience with ALSA, but I am not totally sure on that either).

Cool

I mean I cannot playback more then one sound, for e.g. I start XMMS and then I want to run mpg123 from konsole, and it says cannot open /dev/dsp. That's it.
And I am wondering why ALSA is not implemented in Slack? Or am I wrong?
