Driver
Module: unknown

it's just means it doesn't have a module for it...(I used mandrake before, for a year or so).

ok ok ... i went out and bought a linux compatible sound card.. i was reading the instalation instructions and i am blown away... if some one could please walk me through this...


STEPS TO BUILD DRIVER
================================================================================

1. Backup the Config.in and Makefile in the sound driver directory
(/usr/src/linux/driver/sound).
The Configure.help provide help when you config driver in step
4, please backup the original one (/usr/src/linux/Document) and
copy this file.
The cmpci is document for the driver in detail, please copy it
to /usr/src/linux/Document/sound so you can refer it. Backup if
there is already one.

2. Extract the tar file by 'tar xvzf cmpci-xx.tar.gz' in the above
directory.

3. Change directory to /usr/src/linux

4. Config cm8338 driver by 'make menuconfig', 'make config' or
'make xconfig' command.

5. Please select Sound Card (CONFIG_SOUND=m) support and CMPCI
driver (CONFIG_SOUND_CMPCI=m) as modules. Resident mode not tested.
For driver option, please refer 'DRIVER PARAMETER'

6. Compile the kernel if necessary.

7. Compile the modules by 'make modules'.

8. Install the modules by 'make modules_install'


INSTALL DRIVER
================================================================================

1. Before first time to run the driver, create module dependency by
'depmod -a'

2. To install the driver manually, enter 'modprobe cmpci'.

3. Driver installation for various distributions:

a. Slackware 4.0
Add the 'modprobe cmpci' command in your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
file.so you can start the driver automatically each time booting.

b. Caldera OpenLinux 2.2
Use LISA to load the cmpci module.

c. RedHat 6.0 and S.u.S.E. 6.1
Add following command in /etc/conf.modules:

alias sound cmpci

What happened while I blinked? Try kmix or alsamixer for mixer settings.
