ALSA and Redhat 9 Problem


Hi,

Got a slight problem, i just installed Redhat 9 on my main system, i was using Mandrake 9, and had no problems, but i love Redhat and when 9 came out i upgraded, to take advantage of the new XFree and KDE 3.1.

Everything was going fine, untill i came to the sound config....

I have a cs46xx Gametheatre XP, and i had been using ALSA without problems, everything went ok, untill i came to modprobe the sound driver, and i now get this error :

[root@arthur alsa-utils-0.9.2]# modprobe snd-cs46xx
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: unresolved symbol schedule_work
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod snd-cs46xx failed
[root@arthur alsa-utils-0.9.2]#

Whats going on??? Anyone seen this and know a fix???

Cheers !!

Very interesting. I was running Redhat 8.0 and I had no problems. When I ran Mandrake 9 I had problems. But now I cant get either OS's to boot so once thats done I'll tell ya what happens. I'm trying to get Redhat 9 and Mandrake 9.1 to install but for some reason Redhat installs but doesnt boot and Mandrake doesnt even boot.
When I ran Redhat 8.0 my GTXP ran perfectly. If you go to the ALSA project website they actually have the drivers for the GTXP and tell you how to enable all of it's features. I think I have those files somewhere actually. Ah yes, You've got to download the ALSA-driver-0.9.0rc2.tar.bz2 and a bunch of other files that will be in the similiar directory. I cant remember the exact link unfortunetly but if you go to the website and search for Game Theater XP Linux drivers then this file and some others will be listed. I reccommend downloading the ALSA tools also for expanded options and GTXP usability.
Sincerely,
Rashid

I know all that.

And i'm using alsa's latest drivers from their website.

They worked under Mandrake 9, but i want redhat 9 as the rest of my network is on redhat 9 now. So i fresh installed and followed the same instructions i did last time, but this time i get that error, all the compile and make's work, but it's modprobe that's falling over (see last post for error)....

Cheers,

Ade

I was wondering if you could possibly point me in the right direction as far as what rpm(s) to grab and how to set it up. I'm using redhat 9 myself and saw on ALSAs mailing list to use the freshrpm alsa rpm. I downloaded it and double clicked on it and it said that it was updating my system. The mailing thread said to do this
"apt-get update
apt-get install alsa-lib alsa-lib-devel alsa-utils alsa-driver
gnome-alsamixer"

I think it was specifically to run the commands, but I couldn't get it to work in the terminal or "run command" box. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am a Linux NEWB so I could be missing something simple. By the way I had the EXACT same problem as you, everything with ALSA installed perfectly until the modprobe part, and I got the same exact error messages. Thank you for your time.

As far as i remember (i'm running slackware 9 now, and will never go back), all i did was install the lib, and utills rpm's and then from console i ran alsamixer and set the volume levels. It may also be worth your while to look at the command alsactrl. You can store and reload volume levels using it :

alsactrk store
alsactrl restore (in your startup files to set vols automatically).


Slack does'nt have the problem at all, in redhat it was down to kernel headers not being compiled correctly i think.

Hope that helps some..

I got it working by creating a dummy file called workqueue.h in the include/linux dir in the alsa source dir.
