No Sound -- Please help


I'm currently running RedHat 2.4.9-e.3 and trying to configure a Sound Blaster Live sound card. I've downloaded alsa-driver-1.0.6a and followed installations notes for emu10k1...

no errors

You need the kernel source package.

Also, I would suggest updating your kernel, that is a very old version.

Thanks for the quick reply ... if by needing the "kernel source package" is in reference to the modversion.h errors -- that's the information that is stored in the include file. It seems as if 'make' is just echoing the content of the file ??? any thoughts on that ?
