Angry es18xx module won't compile


Installed Fedora Core 2 the other day and have not been able to compile the module for my ancient sound card. All kinds of other modules compile, but not es18xx, which is the correct driver for my es1868.

Anyone have any ideas?

I tried compiling it separately, but it needs to be compiled in the alsa framework, and I haven't been able to get that to run correctly either. (stand-alone compile errors out complaining of missing symbols or some such. -- errors appended.)

(many more errors preceed this but they are similar)
/home/markf/alsa-driver-0.9.0beta12/include/adriver.h:118:100: missing binary operator before token "("

I don't have FC but have you tried opening a terminal, typing su then your root password then type alsaconf??

Forgive me if you have, but on my system, it then fails for my es1869 not 1868 but then gives me an option to probe for legacy soundcards and then finds it and configures it.

I did not have to recompile, but from memory if the above suggestion fails for you may need to look for separate alsa packages that contain the letters oss which is what my ess card works best off.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm afraid that there's more at work here than merely recognizing the hardware (which posts nicely) The problem is that the driver isn't/won't compile. This may be because I'm now running a multi-processor system, and the driver has problems with the SMP headers? I'm not sure about that. I know that the nvidia driver for my card has issues with the multiprocessing kernel, and there're some instructions (which I haven't had time to read yet) buried in the documentation that either explain that it's a problem, or how to get around it.
hope you are having a very good evening.

Mark.
