hi shaun and all,
i was able to compile version 0.9.0beta7 of the alsa drivers
but i get a module error when i load the snd-card-sb16.o module
step 1. i compiled sound in my kernel, soundcore.
step 2. i run configure with debug=detect
step 3. i do a make install
i also configure and make install the other two directories
step 4. try to install the modules with modprobe
i get that error with the sb16 module
i have fchecked several times to make sure things are loaded and
configured for sound
i am able to load up the sb.o module that comes with linux and it works
but the snd-card-sb16 will not load for some reason.
thanks in advance
