didn't compile emu10k1 as module


i just finished installing my new 2.6.0 kernel on Mandrake 9.2. However, when I was booting up, I noticed that eth0 didn't load up right and the emu10k sound module. is there anyway i can get these to work without recompiling the kernel?

Assuming your kernel actually supports the module, ie, the module had been marked with an "M" during the compile, you should be able to manually load it using the insmod command. The man pages describe this command in a lot more detail than I can offer.

However, if you'll be using this module all the time, as I think you probably would be, maybe doing a recompile would be worth it so that your kernel will have built-in support. It's definitely something to consider -- J.W.
