Aureal soundcard >>>any drivers for this?? Out of business approx 2 yrs ago

Post by Helmu » Tue, 22 Oct 2002 10:01:09



        My Wifes' using RH 8.1 and the computer I gave her to use has
an AUREAL Vortex soundcard.

She's going to school but it seems I'm doing the work.

Maybe it'd be easier just to yank it and put a Soundblaster in there
for her.

yes?

Any help appreciated,

Helmut

I've discovered the hard way that the driver package that's available
won't work with a 2.4 kernel - it's a 2.2 driver.  If you get the latest
from the CVS tree at this site, you'll have more luck - it worked for
my RH7.1 system, at least.

Helmut, if you want a tarball of the latest stuff from a little while ago
(to save you some effort), I've got one of my entire aureal directory
tree that I've mailed to other people.  Email the home (OptusNet)
address from my .sig, but be warned that I won't be able to check
that until Saturday morning Australian time.

Quote:> RH 8.1???????

Good question.  The RH website only discusses up to 8.0.  Possibly
Helmut did a typo - 1 *is* next to 0, after all.

My experience is that the driver works with 2.4 kernels, and even with
2.4 kernels compiled with GCC 3.2. Maybe you did something wrong.

However, it's a good idea to grab the latest sources anyway.

I got *lots* of compilation errors from the package I initially downloaded.
They looked a lot like headers had changed.  Of course, I'm now on
my work (NT) machine and some months have passed, so I have zero
idea what the problems were.  Also, of course, I've downloaded, installed
and upgraded a number of other things in the meantime.

Quite likely.  I was still in the *very* early stages of learning about
Linux
and how to do things then.  I think I've now progressed from *very* early
to just early.

Quote:> However, it's a good idea to grab the latest sources anyway.

Absolutely, with the proviso that stable is sometimes better than
bleeding-edge.
