decided to do a bit of exploration on the slack cd... realized i'd never viewed the contents of a cd before... i read through a few pages, and tried to mount it... i got curious because i'd never seen the contents of my other hard drive either... couldn't find it...

what exactly do you type in the console to view such things?

primary master is a WD120gb
primary slave is another WD120gb
secondary master is an LG DVD-rom
secondary slave is an LF burner...

any help would be appreciated on this matter as well, because the second hard drive is full of dvd rips that took me a LOOOOOOOOONG time to rip and i'd like to see them again!

Get linux kernel ver 2.4.20 and
cd /usr/src/linux
tar -zxvf 'linux-2.4.20.tar.gz' (or what eevr it is)

Now you can config ALSA again

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 09:02 AM

sweet, thanks
i'll give it a try and keep you posted

nautilus_1987 07-10-2003 09:10 AM

you are always welcome :)
Try to find best mirror to download kernel :]
next time you install ALSA
configure --with-kernel=/usr/src/linux
===============
actaully I think you will have problems with all that thing ... so keep posting

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 09:14 AM

hmmm, same thing...
i noticed its looking for 2.4.20, but i downloaded 2.4.21...
it says use --with-kernel=dir to specify another directory with kernel...
if i typed --with-kernel=/usr/src/linux ... hmm, then what?

nautilus_1987 07-10-2003 09:22 AM

have you tried?

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 09:22 AM

checking for kernel version... The file /usr/src/linux/linux-2.4.21/include/linux/version.h does not exist.
its right... it doesn't...

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 09:23 AM

yeah, i tried... same thing, but... read above message

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 09:24 AM

in with the rest of the stuff i added --with-kernel=/usr/src/linux/linux-2.4.21 ...
i think thats whats got me the closest right now, its lookiung for the file in the right place, but its not here, even when i ls the folder

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 09:25 AM

so now i have...

okay, i got them installed...
now when i type
modprobe snd-via82xx;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
i get can't locate module...

nakedjohn 07-10-2003 10:55 AM
