editing modules.conf to load sound driver modules

editing modules.conf to load sound driver modules

Post by Jame » Sat, 19 Apr 2003 11:40:16



After installing RH 8 my /etc/modules.conf looked like this:

  > alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
  > alias eth0 8139too
  > alias sound-slot-0 via82cxxx_audio
  > post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > alias sound-slot-1 es1371
  > post-install sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > pre-remove sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > alias usb-controller usb-uhci

I have an audio pci 128 (es1371) sound card as you can see and couldn't
get any sounds.
However, I quoted out the lines that load the via82cxxx module to
sound-slot-0 and changed sound-slot-1 to sound-slot-0 so that
modules.conf looked like this:

  > alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
  > alias eth0 8139too
  > ### alias sound-slot-0 via82cxxx_audio
  > ##post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > ##pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > alias sound-slot-0 es1371
  > post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
  >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
  > alias usb-controller usb-uhci

I can now get sounds after rebooting but it sounds a bit scratchy.  Is
there any way I can improve the sound quality.  It sounds much better
under XP.  Would installling the ALSA drivers improve sound qualtiy?

Thanks

1. conf.modules vs. modules.conf & modules.dep??

Just upgraded my RH6.2 box to kernel 2.2.18 (in conjunction with
applying vpn masq patch).  Now I notice that it complains about
conf.modules, so I renamed this to conf.modules.old and made a copy as
modules.conf.  Now it complains that modules.conf is newer than
modules.dep.  And, in any case, it doesn't seem to load my modules
(specifically 3c509.o for ethernet).

My present workaround is just to manually invoke this module (modprobe
3c509) and restart /etc/rc.d/init.d/network (as well as dhcpd and
named), but I know there's gotta be a "Right Way" of doing this.

What's different between 2.2.18 and my old kernel (2.2.14-5.0) in
terms of handling these files?  And, more importantly, how do I
correct this situation?  Many thanks, in advance.
