Question emu10k1 install problems

Hi all.

I'm currently running RH7.2 and the 2.4.7-10 kernel. I have an Audigy (Gamer) based sound card so naturally I pulled down the latest emu10k1 source. When I attempted to run 'make', I was hit by a strange error:

make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-2.4.9-13/include/linux/modversions.h', needed by 'audio.o'. Stop.

2.4.9-13!?! How can that be?

Being a newbie, I read through the README's which came with the emu source and also checked as many online sources for emutools as Google could muster. (Unfortunately was cracked recently.) None of these resources produced an answer. Finally I decided to check out the 'Makefile.config' file. I noticed that the 'KERNELVERSION' (constant?) was set to 'auto' so I changed it to 'linux-2.4.7-10' leaving the 'KERNELSOURCE' value: '/usr/src/linux/'. This was a shot in the dark.

The 'make' command still remained unimpressed, repeating it's previous error.

Can anyone shed light on this?

Thanks in advance.

If you used RH's automatic service update service, the newest version is 2.4.9-13. For whatever reason, the "up2date" function does not install the latest kernel at /usr/src/linux 2.4.XX or whatever. In fact, RH does not install the kernel code anywhere that I could find. I had the exact same issue.

You can check your version to be sure by typing:

uname -a

I ended up downloading the latest kernel 2.4.17 and building my own from scratch. You can download the latest kernel from:

There are some good kernel HOW-To's at:

However, it is a pain because you have to configure the kernel yourself. If it is your first time (like it was mine this week), it is not easy.

I hope this has helped!
