modprobe configuration

---1) Though I had my sound work,
(adding "alias sound sb" and "options sound irq=..." in /etc/modules.conf" and checking the sound module was loaded with the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file),
I still recieve error messages in /var/log/syslog when starting :
modprobe : can't locate sound-slot-1
kernel : sound device : sb detected
modprobe : can't locate module binfmt-0000
modprobe : can't locate sound-service-1
Trouble is I can't locate the error of configuration.

---2) When starting a shell (as user), an error appears on the first line :
modprobe : command not found
What am I to do ?

1) the sound drivers often want extra services to load properly, i had this with my AC97 soundcard, and just manually added each one to modules.conf. Various mixer things etc... Search on the net for the parameters, and you should find what you want...

look at

it's for the alsa drivers, which i'd guess you're not using.... but hey.. it may help

2) log in as root. modprobe shouldn't be on a user path. it'll be ni /sbin usually.

My sound wouldn't work until I turned PNP OS off in BIOS. Maybe try that...
