modprobing kernel doesn't work for SuSE 9.0


Ok. I instlled SuSE 9.0 a few days ago. I got eveyrthing working except for my sound card. I've got onbard sound, but I use a Creative Labs Audigy LS. I downloaded the alsa drivers and everything for it, got them untarred, but when I go to modprobe them, it doesn't work. This is what it returns with.

Code:
/lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod snd-emu10k1 failed
I searched through the forums and found several cases similar to mine, but never quite the same, so the solutions wouldn't work for me. Thanks in advance.

Did you install ALSA from source? If so post the setps you took to do it.

All I did was follow the instructions at http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...module=emu10k1.

Did you edit your modules.conf (for 2.4 kernels) or your modprobe.conf (for 2.6 kernels)? Also, what version of gcc are you using? Do a gcc --version to find out. Tell me also what version of gcc was used to compile your kernel. Do a cat /proc/version to find that out.

OK. I actually got the sound working by using ./alsaconf (onboard card, not my audigy, which is what I would like), but my modprobe problem still isn't solved. gcc comes back with "gcc: unrecognized option '-version'." the "cat /proc/version returns, "Linux version 2.4.21-144-default (root@i386.suse.de) (gcc version 3.3.1 (SuSE Linux)) #1 Fri Nov 14 00:01:36 UTC 2003."

It's a double dash. It's "--version" not "-version".

Could you also post the output of lsmod and lspci?

You seem to have another set of sound drivers loaded for what I'm guessing is an on board card. Did you intentionally do this? Try removing the first set of drivers and inserting the new set to see if that works.

Yeah SuSE automatically detected the onboard card, so I installed it for now. I figured I could just install the audigy drivers along side them and disable the onboard card. But I don't know how to remove the drivers.

Yeah you should be able to install them along side but let's just see if there's a conflict in the set up. To remove any module(s) do an rmmod <module1> <module2>... moduleN as root. See then if you can do the modprobe command on the soundblaster modules.

I think I may have found a problem in the setup instructions for the card on the alsa website. In the instructions it tells you to configure with the option "--with-cards=emu10k1", but emu10k1 is the wrong chipset for my card. I tried with the audigy chipset, but that doesn't work either. It complains about unknown card "audigy". It seems to work fine with the --with-cards=emu10k1 though. I'll edit this post when I finish installing the modules and tell you how it went.

EDIT: Still no luck. The VIA drivers were not there when I ran lsmod, and I think they only run if i execute alsaconf, which would explain why I have to run it every time I boot up. Also, I just realized that these aren't the drivers for my exact card, but an almost identical card. Could that be causing the problem? The only drivers for an Audigy LS I could find are the proprietary OSS drivers.

Emu10k1 covers the audigy as well but I think you're right. The LS is unsupported by ALSA as of this date.
