What is the meaning of insmod: i810_rng failed


I get lots of the following error message everytime i boot into linux. I didn't worry about it because it doesn't seem to affect the system But i just want know what it means and how to fix it:

insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/char/i810_rng.o.gz: insmod i810_rng failed.

add it to your blacklist

/etc/hotplug/blacklist

It means that the kernel is trying to load a
watchdog and the hardware doesn't support
the module.


Cheers,

but how do you get sound to work?

I have added this to my blacklist, but that still doesn't fix my problem of sound support...Is there any way to get the sound card working?

1. find out what chipset it is
2. find the module associated with that chipset (read /etc/rc.d/rc.modules if you are using slackware)
3. type "modprobe [module name]" as root
4. if alsa (Adavanced Linux Sound Architecture)is installed, run "alsamixer" then "alsactl store" to store your settings; otherwise just run your desktop mixer (oss support)

edit: you may need to:
chmod 777 /dev/dsp*
and:
chmod 777 /dev/mixer*
in order to use sound if you are not root.
