what's in /usr/src

normally you should have a folder named linux-2.4????? and a link to it named linux

or you could have a folder named linux. But it needs to be the kernel-source for your kernel.

in /usr/src I have an RPM folder

open that and I get a RPMS folder...

open that and I get : athlon, i386, i486, i586, i686, k6 and noarch folders....


So umm what exactly is wrong here? none of the folders have anything in them

( I downloaded mandrake 9.1 and burned it onto cds to install, could this have been a problem ? )

did you update your kernel?

check mandrake to see if there's other updates.

In my Usr/src folder I now have
"linux"
"linux-2.3.21.0.18mdk"
and "RPM" so I think I installed it. Before I only had the RPM folder.

Im my lib/modules folder I have a
"2.4.21-0.13mdk" file should I get it so they are the same version? Im really confused on what Im trying to do right now.... seems like a lot of work just to get the sound driver installed.

just to give you some info. i also have a vortex sound card and i have found that it is best to d/l the cvs version. you can do it this way:
--open a terminal
--type this:
Code:
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/aureal login
--press enter at the prompt for a password for anonymous use
--type this:
Code:
 cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/aureal co aureal
i believe that this is a dead project so you will have to open the Makefile and change some things. the one thing that i have had to change is when the make file searches for your hardware. it will be the line that looks like this:
Code:
ifneq ($(shell /sbin/lspci -d '12eb:3'),)
NAME = au8810.........
what you will have to do is after the driver d/l's you will have to find lspci by using "locate" then change the line in Makefile accordingly.

after this then:

Code:
$ su
password
# make install-all
here is a link to the readme in the cvs version:
.README
where it lists your card as "au8810"

now i am not sure that this will work with MDK 9.1. i got the same result as you but i was back on the verge on distro experimentation (which i am almost done stopping with debian) so i didn't try too hard to fix it. this looks like it will take some research and hard work to get it working for you or you can go back to MDK9.0 where i know it worked using au8820. now i am not saying that MDK9 will work perfectly but it does give you sound. let me know how things go.
have fun

Thank you for trying... but it dosnt seem to work (oh well...)

would this be easier to do if I install redhat instead? If so, I can just grab the cds from my friend and install in the morning if it will be easier to install. I cant do without sound. Im going stir crazy.

i am not sure if RH would work any better or be any easier. but on a personal note: i don't like RH. i personally like to install from source. RH seems to only like to work with RPMs (and who wouldn't when they are the creater of RPM) MDK seems to give a little leeway with this but still leans toward the rpm thing.
as far as changing distro here is a section from the README
Code:
System Requirements
-------------------

Sound card requirements:

Each vendor has it's own requirements for their sound cards, check with
the manufacturer of your card.

Driver requirements:

This driver is for Intel x86 systems only.

If your BIOS has an option for "PnP OS", it must be disabled.

Version 1.1.3 of this driver has been tested on the following distributions:
-Debian Unstable, kernel 2.4.14, 2.4.16
-Slackware 8.0, kernel 2.4.13-ac7

Version 1.1.3 of this driver should work on:
-All Intel x86 platforms running Linux Kernel 2.1 or greater.
i would suggest using MDK 9.0 if you are still a newbie. but if not then try debian or slack or gentoo. that is all i can suggest besides changing out your card.

Thanks for trying atleast... hopefully I can get this all worked out. Been trying at it for over a week now.

Do you think I could use the sound card thats built in on my processor?

(AMD Athelon 1500)

now it looks like you have some kernel-source installed but it appears that you must be running a different kernel, so that won't help

lib/modules/2.4???

/usr/src/linux-2.4??

and the output of uname -r

should all be the same.


don't give up yet, yet you'll get it


whatever you install if you don't install the development tools there will be the same problem.


you could also upgrade the installation and install more apps
