no pci / soundcard found at boot time


hi group just wanted to ask some help; here is the situation:

1. installed Zw4.6.1 --at boot time: message shows " NO PCI / SOUND CARD FOUND" (after a fresh install)
2. included my win partitions during installation --BUT cannot access them

BUT when i did this commands :



Quote:
> mount command :

/dev/sdb2 on / reiserfs (rw, noatime)
proc on /proc
sysfs on /sys

> df command :

FS available used .... etc..
/dev/sdb2 (only)

>cat /etc/fstab

/dev/sdb7 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sdb2 / reiserfs defaults,noatime 1 1
/dev/sda1 /mnt/win vfat defaults 1 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/winbak vfat defaults 1 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5 mode 60 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

output of my zw4.6.1 /proc/filesystem

nodev sysfs
nodev rootfs
nodev bdev
nodev proc
nodev binfmt_misc
nodev sockfs
nodev usbfs
nodev pipefs
nodev futexfs
nodev inotifyfs
nodev devpts
reiserfs
ext3
ext2
nodev ranfs
iso9660
udf
xfs
nodev mqueu

PLUS i can see something like /etc/rc.d/rc.modules etc. etc. no such file or directory.. (quite too long) and i cant copy the text file since i cant use my win partitions .. as far as i could remember sound is included in the message.. something like /lib/sound **

CHECKED its md5sum :

a45b59ae9a1469f48356847854f3b0e7 zenwalk-4.6.1.iso

[root@vector/mnt/vl-hot/sda/vol1/Zw 4.6]# md5sum zenwalk-4.6.1.iso
a45b59ae9a1469f48356847854f3b0e7 zenwalk-4.6.1.iso

--seems the same ----

i did a 2nd reinstall--- same output shows ----

just wondering.. do zw4.6.1 supports vfat? it was not listed in the /proc/filesystem

NOTE: have not experienced this when i used Zw3.0 up to 4.4
plus-- never encountered posted problems in my VL5.1 SOHO and 5.8 GOLD

strange, which FS is it ?
cant you post your /etc/fstab ?

it does, of course, but as module, so t's loaded on demand (by udev mostly)

It looks like a pci audio card indead.
I don't understad why it wasn't detected ...
Did you try :
- upgrading alsa (if an upgrade is available)
- running (as root) : /usr/sbin/alsaconf
as it was detected on ZW before my guess is a problem either on alsa (but why now? can you check the version on working packages(ZW4.4)) or kernel (maybe a broken driver in new kernel)

are you sure it's vfat (not ntfs ?)
If so, fstab seems ok, can you :
- post what "mount" displays
- try "mount /dev/sda1" (as root)

you might follow/post in this thread, it looks the same to me:

Same here - ZW 4.6.1 doesn't recognize my soundcard or my ethernet card (both onboard). This is on the same machine that ZW 4.4 runs happily out of the box...

Did the newer kernel drop the support for some hardware?

Ah well, I'll stay with 4.4 for now and wait for Slack 12...

Bye,
Dina

As far as i know ZW didn't drop any of those support in 4.6.1 kernel (2.6.21.3).
However it's possible kernel devs broke some stuffs, or some other packages (like udev) brought the problem.

why is your kernel: 2.6.18.6 ? did you compiled it yourself ? Because ZW 4.6.1 runs on 2.6.21.3 ...

i did a reinstall again BUT with XFS as the fs type.. as the packages are being installed I REALLY saw the kernel 2.6.21.3


BUT when it booted i saw this :

(last lines of the message before the NO PCI/SOUNDCARD found appears)

> Updating modules dependencies for linux 2.6.18.6

warning : :/lib/modules/2.6.18.6/modules.dep no such file or directory
fatal : :/lib/modules/2.6.18.6/modules.dep.tmp cannot write

THEN as per doing "uname -a"

its linux 2.6.18.6


UPDATE :

tried installing VL 5.8 SOHO in the /dev/hdc2 partition (where my curent Zw is installed ) hmm i think my partition hs a problem.. though it was installed (VL) the soundcard was not also detected.. AND AS I checked the kernel version.. it was : linux 2.6.18.6


if that is the case i have 2 options in mind :

1. erase the current partition (hdc2) --using cfidisk.. then make another logical partition again.. (since i have 14G of free logical partition)

2 use fsck
