SB Live! and Linux Problems (Redhat and Debian)

SB Live! and Linux Problems (Redhat and Debian)

Post by soma19 » Sun, 29 Dec 2002 09:11:26



Hello everyone,

I have a problem with my SB Live! sound card.  When starting KDE, I
get this message:

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the soudn driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

I've tried recompiling my kernel and including the SB Live code as a
module and directly into the kernel.  When configured as a module, I
get the above message and when I try to load the module, I get this as
well:


/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o:
init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module
parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from
dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o:
insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o
failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o:
insmod emu10k1 failed

My system is running RedHat 7.3 with the 2.4.20 kernel.  My friend is
also having the same problem though he is using Debian (which I assume
is the 2.2 kernel b/c I don't think he compiled a new one).

Thank you all very much for your time.

SB Live! and Linux Problems (Redhat and Debian)

Hi,

What happens if you don't compile it as a module, but when you put it in
your kernel? What happens if you load the kernel shipped with RedHat and try
to load the module? Did you try another PCI slot?

SB Live! and Linux Problems (Redhat and Debian)

You Live! card should have been auto-detected in RH 7.x and RH 8.0.  I've
been using this card for awhile in Linux without any problems.

I'm not sure what else to say, but I did have to add this to
/etc/modules.conf to get the joystick to work:

# Joystick stuff
alias char-major-13 input
above input joydev emu10k1-gp analog
options analog js=gameport

This is what RH added to /etc/modules.conf:

alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
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 || :


emu10k1                68744   1 (autoclean)
ac97_codec             13416   0 (autoclean) [emu10k1]
sound                  74388   0 (autoclean) [emu10k1]
soundcore               6532   7 (autoclean) [emu10k1 sound]
<snip>

Hope this helps somehow, but I would recommend staying with kernel modules.
