sndconfig gives an error

I get the following error with sndconfig, which kernel module do I need to install to get this functionality?
│ You don't seem to be running a kernel with modular sound │
│ enabled. (soundcore.o was not found in the module search path). │
│ To use sndconfig, you must be running a kernel with modular │
│ sound, such as the kernel images shipped with Debian Linux or │
│ a 2.2 or greater kernel.

I found someone else with the exact same problem here:

Another post on the net:
Like the replier of the post on that site said i SHOULDNT have, else it would work, I have a file /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/soundcore.o

Does it show it's loaded with this command?


If not, try insmod <module>
