ALSA drivers for my Dell Sound Card

HI all,

I am one of those Linux users - using FC 2 - who was bestowed with the fake Creative Labs SB Live! sound cards. Thus, the emu10k1 drivers don't work with this fraudulent card.
Anyway, I downloaded all the pertinent files from ALSA's web site which include the
emu10k1X driver which is supposed to, well, drive the fake sound card.
I have faithfully followed the installation steps in the documentation area of ALSA's web site.
Everything works fine until I enter the command:

/sbin/modprobe snd-emu10k1x;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

I then receive the following FATAL error message:

FATAL: Error inserting snd_emu10k1x (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1x.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

When I look at dmesg I see this:

snd_emu10k1x: Unknown symbol snd_compat_kcalloc
snd_emu10k1x: Unknown symbol snd_verbose_printk
snd_emu10k1x: Unknown symbol snd_compat_kcalloc
snd_emu10k1x: Unknown symbol snd_verbose_printk
snd_emu10k1x: Unknown symbol snd_compat_kcalloc
snd_emu10k1x: Unknown symbol snd_verbose_printk

When I try to run alsamixer I get this:

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device

Which I kind of figured due to the FATAL error above.

All make and config. commands completed successfully so I"m stumped by the failed attempt at inserting the sound module.

Any ideas?

Thanks much in advance.
