snd-nm256 module prob

Hi all,

I installed the new kernel, 2.6.3 and when it comes to load my soundcard, it just freezes over and I cannot do anything else after. I modularized my soundcard into a module called snd-nm256.ko and when I boot, it boots well but I don't get any sound, so I load my module with modprobe and it freezes over like if it were in the kernel... I got a Dell Latitude and no problems with the 2.4 series, can I take the module of one of these versions ?

Thanks in advance,

if you're using the exact same module from 2.4 and trying to load it in 2.6 (having renamed it .ko, I suppose).... yeah, that'll freeze.

Have you tried ALSA?
Compile sound support only in kernel (soundcore but don't select alsa or OSS)
Then compile ALSA seperately as per instructions on
for your soundcard in the soundcard matrix

Thanks ! I'll try it when I'll be at home, but the freeze comes when it took the 2.6.3 module, I can't load the 2.4.* one...

Depending the version of your Latitude you may need to use the snd-cs4232 driver. This is true for the CPi 300XT at least, and probably several other models.

Head on over to Yahoo Groups and browse the group linux-dell-laptops, when I worked with Dells I made regular visits there to find solutions to problems and pick up nice tricks.
