1. I'm sure there's a simple solution--but help!
I've successfully compiled and installed kernel 2.4.0 except for one
thing: sound support.
I have compiled it several time with either sound modules or with sound
built into the kernel, but I get no sound. Trying to start the mixer
brings the message that there is no mixer.
I've never had to do this before. I had RH 6.1 which came with a huge
precompiled kernel (2.2.12-20) and preconfigured modules.
Compiling your own kernel is great. The new kernel is half the size of
the old one, and my old P120 now seems to run like a bat out of hell.
In my last try, I compiled the sound drivers into the kernel. At boot
up, I get the message
localhost kernel: Soundblaster audio driver Copyright (C) by Hannu
localhost kernel: sb: No ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones...
localhost lpd: lpd startup succeeded
localhost kernel: sb: I/O, IRQ, and DMA are mandatory
localhost kernel: YM3812 and OPL-3 driver Copyright (C) by Hannu
Savolainen, Rob Hooft 1993-1996
Does this mean that I have to specify io, irq, and dma when I compile?
If so how do I do it?
Or does it mean I should add a boot parameter to lilo.conf? If so,
what is the parameter and syntax? The HOW-TOs I've looked at say
little more than that it is more trouble than it's worth to add sound
Also, I get the following message when shutting down
localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-0
This is perplexing because I presently have no sound modules. Is my
problem simply that I'm inadvertently accessing modules used by the
previous kernel? If so, what is accessing them, and how do I stop it?
Besides upgrading modutils and all of the other stuff you're supposed
to upgrade, all I've changed is the kernel and the System-map.
As a newbie, I don't feel like tinkering too much more without expert
advice. If you look in the book, _Recipes for Disaster_ under
"Tinkering with Linux," you'll see my picture.
Lastly, the sound card is a Soundblaster 16 PnP (no, it doesn't work
with isapnp installed either). The old modules.conf options were
sb dma16=5 io=0x220 mpu_io=0x330 dma=1 irq=5
They used to work, but not anymore, even when I boot the old kernel.
Any help greatly appreciated.
