installing Ensoniq 1371 on debian potato

Having a hard time finding an appropriate newsgroup for this question.
I apologize to any members of the other 2 newsgroups.

What I've done so far:

#cd /usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.10
#make menuconfig
(enabled sound support as a module for Ensoniq 1371)

#make dep
#make clean
#make bzImage
#make modules
#make modules_install
#cp /usr/src/kernel-sources-2.2.10/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /vmlinuz
#cd /sbin


#cat /dev/sndstat
cat: sndstat: No such device

#insmod sound trace_init=1
/lib//modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o: unresolved symbol
/lib//modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o: unresolved symbol
/lib//modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o: unresolved symbol

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

That's what I do as well, and it works.

That depends on the distribution. I use Slackware, which keeps the
kernels in / (although, you can also put them in /boot, if you really
want to :)



1. Suse 6.2 and ensoniq 1371


I am having problems to get a soundblaster 64 to work
on a suse 6.2 system I installed on a friend's PC.
Any help or suggestions would be very much apreciated!

The situation:

According to /proc/pci, the soundcard is a Ensoniq 1371:

  Bus  0, device  11, function  0:
    Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq Unknown device (rev 6).
      Vendor id=1274. Device id=1371.
      Slow devsel.  Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=12.Max Lat=128.
      I/O at 0xb800 [0xb801].

Suse 6.2 came with a module for the 1370 precompiled but there was
no module for the 1371 precompiled.   So I used Suse's kernelsource to
compile my own 1371 module.  This compilation works fine, but
inserting this module es1371 tells me:

# insmod es1371
/lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/es1371.o: init_module: Device or resouce busy
/lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/es1371.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/es1371.o failed
/lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/es1371.o: insmod es1371 failed

I have no clue why inserting the module fails.  Somebody know what I
can do about this?

Best Regards,


May the source be with you!
