Unhappy alsa compiling problems on mandrake 10.0


I know virtually nothing about Linux, so please be patient with me. I installed mandrake 10.0 (kernel 2.6.3) on an older PII computer with an ISA sound card (chipset AZT2320). During the hardware configuration section I told the installer I had an ISA sound card, and it told me to run 'sndconfig'. I did that and couldn't find my card on the list, so I gave up on that and decided to try alsa.

I unzipped alsa-driver-1.0.5.tar.gz into my home directory and tried to run configure:

./configure --with-cards=azt2320 --with-sequencer=yes

and I was told my 'version.h' file couldn't be found. I found it and typed

./configure --with-cards=azt2320 --with-sequencer=yes --with-kernel=/usr

this time it found the kernel version (though it reported it as 2.6.0, not 2.6.3 like the mandrakw website says), and went through compiling, until it said:

[compile] error 2 *** Unable to make target 'modules'. Stop.

Anyone know how I can get my sound working? Do I have to do all this compiling and such, and if so, what did I do wrong?

Thanks in advance,
fireproof

ypu probably need to install the kernel sources. Go into the software installer (under mandrake control center) and look for kernel-source. Make sure it matches the version of your kernel (i.e. 2.6.3) and install it. Then try compile alsa again.

I am looking at the options in the 2.6 kernel for ISA sound devices. None of them seem to be enabled by default. the only card I saw in their that seemed similar was the aztech sound galaxy could that be your card? If that is the card, you will need to recompile the kernel with that option(but I am not sure if that is the one)
