[RESOLVED] FATAL: Module snd_intel8x0 not found.


Hey, just curious as to where this error was coming from. It occurs during boot:
Code:
* Loading ALSA Modules...
*     Loading: snd_intel8x0...
*     FATAL: Module snd_intel8x0 not found.
Here's my lspci record...
Code:
root@azrael gauntalus # lspci | grep audio
0000:00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)
I'm sure that's the driver that I was using on my previous install, and I'm pretty sure that I included that module in the kernel last time I compiled it (yesterday). Thing is, my sound works fine, I just have this error message popping up.

You most likely compiled support for your card directly into the kernel and not as a module.

Hmmm... didn't think about it. I have the same prbl (but sound works in, say, KDE). I really added alsa to kernel...
Thanks.

stop trying to load the module. i think you can just whup it out of /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 (for a 2.6 kernel.....) if it's not in there, then check /etc/modules.d/alsa.

always better to compile it as a module though really.

Try to take advantage or there Doc's.They walk you through stuff and then I understand the process.I have been known to wing it and most times I get myself in a fix.See the Gentoo Answer Man below.

just curious, why is it that you recommend that I compile as modules instead of directly into the kernel?

just habit really... actually the next thread i answered after this one was someone asking exactly that... just seems more logical to run physically or conceptually seperate hardware drivers as modules...

alrighty,
removing the snd_intel8x0 entry from /etc/modules.d/alsa fixed it. Thanks!

Dear gauntalus, I tried to do so, but still it says can't find snd-card-0 while loading, any clues?
