I have no kernel/drivers/sound/ folder. Step One in "Getting Hercules Working"


I am going to go through this process in steps. The step I am currently working on will be kept at the bottom of the OP.

*****************************************************************************

I have given up searching for this. I cannot modprobe any sound modules, and there is no option in my kernel (2.6.12) to compile in soundcore, and I do not even have a sound drivers folder for this kernel.

Code:
root@darkstar:/lib/modules/2.6.12/kernel/drivers# ls
acpi/  base/  net/  scsi/  usb/  video/
but for my 2.4 kernel I do:

Code:
root@darkstar:/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers# ls
block/      cdrom/  hotplug/  ide/       input/  md/     message/  parport/  pnp/   sound/      usb/
bluetooth/  char/   i2c/      ieee1394/  isdn/   media/  net/      pcmcia/   scsi/  telephony/  video/
Sooo it appears in my 2.4 folder I have what I need;



Step One (1): How do I get a Sound folder in the drivers folder for my most recent kernel?

I believe the 2.4 series drivers are based on OSS, whereas the migration has been to ALSA. Current recommendations suggest that you shouldn't compile sound modules with the kernel source, but rather install them afterwards straight from the sound project source:

Hmmm....

This is the page I am looking at: linky

'soundcore' is neither found in modinfo nor is it modprobe-able.

ALSA should be installed
Code:
swaret --install alsa*
, but it does not detect my hercules.

Any ideas where to go next? If ALSA found it I would be happy -- I wouldn't even mind the midi troubles everyone with this card seems to have.

I assume I still need soundcore .....but it is not in the 2.6 kernel?

i have absolutely no idea what you mean that
there is no sound support for the 2.6.x kernels.

look again.

I was wondering where I could find the option to compile soundcore in; I found it though, thanks.
********************************************************************

mm-- After digging around on that link above, I recompiled my kernel with only module sound support, rebooted, installed alsa NOT from the slackware sources, and have been going fine until this point:

Code:
modprobe snd-cs46xx;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
Each modprobe there returns something like:

Code:
root@darkstar:/usr/src/alsa/alsa-utils-1.0.9a# modprobe snd-seq-oss

Anyone know what is going on?

Obviously I didn't give the kernel something it wants. What is it?

I ran ALSACONF and it works now. (supposedly, haven't actually tried it yet)

Let this be a lesson to me. alsa source > slackware packages.

I always compile, and then package, the newest version of alsa-lib, alsa-utils, and alsa-oss. Then I get the latests driver source and follow the alsa HOWTO for my card (SoundBlaster Live!) to compile and install the drivers.

Have you checked the HOWTO section at www.alsa-project.org for instructions on how to compile and install the alsa driver for your sound card?

Later,
MMYoung
