how to make Linux ignore hardware?


Is there an easy way to make Linux ignore a certain piece of hardware and load no drivers for it on startup?
My mobo has a lame soundcard built in (VT8233) and I have a SoundBlaster-Live installed. I'd like to make Linux ignore the VT8233 because it's the one used by default and not the better SB-Live.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to LQ!

Recompile your kernel and take out the support for the via soundchip -
here's how to recompile your kernel ->

btw - here's the section of the kernel you'll need to change ->
Code:
# Sound
#
CONFIG_SOUND=y
# CONFIG_SOUND_ALI5455 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_BT878 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_CMPCI is not set
CONFIG_SOUND_EMU10K1=y  <-- this is the soundblaster
# CONFIG_MIDI_EMU10K1 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_FUSION is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_CS4281 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ES1370 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ES1371 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ESSSOLO1 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MAESTRO is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MAESTRO3 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_FORTE is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ICH is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_RME96XX is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_SONICVIBES is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_TRIDENT is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MSNDCLAS is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MSNDPIN is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_VIA82CXXX is not set  <-- this is the VT8233
# CONFIG_MIDI_VIA82CXXX is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_OSS is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_TVMIXER is not set

I don't believe the support is compiled in.
If I remove these files, will that work just as well?
/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/kernel/sound/pci/snd-via82xx.ko.gz
/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/kernel/sound/oss/via82cxxx_audio.ko.gz

Right now, the former is the driver, but harddrake tells me the latter could be used as well.

I thought there was some kernel parameter you could pass that would ignore devices, but I can't think of it...
