new kernel old modules?


is it possible to use old modules from my 2.4.26 default install in my new 2.6.9 kernel? sounds a bit iffy i know but i cant seem to find the correct sound drivers within the new kernel, and i know they are sitting in the module dir of the old kernel. any ideas?

thanks

You could give it a try, but I wouldn't expect it to work.

If you provide more details, like the type of soundcard you have, we can probably point you to the equivalent in the 2.6.x series kernel.

Audio output:
compliant standards AC '97, DirectSound

Audio output type: Sound card

also i have a radeon 7500 in this laptop that when i load the modules into the kernel for ati radeon support, during boot i see a bunch of text (readable just i cant read it while its flying) then a cursor sits at the bottom blinking at me, but when i remove the module it works fine using just vesa module.

thanks for your fast replies

For the AC'97 codec type soundcard, I just use and load the i810_audio module or driver which should work on most of those. It usually works well enabling builtin support as well, so there's no need for a module to be loaded, etc.

If its in the kernel already, the one your compiling or have compiled, does your system detect it upon bootup.. what's the output of lspci and or dmesg? dmesg can be long, you'll have to scan thru it for detection of your sound or try to grep with keywords, etc.
