    turtle beach sound no longer works

    Hey Gang,

    My turtle beach montego II card used to work thanks to a patch
    from Source forge (au88xx.tar.gz) in 7.2, 8.0, and 8.1, but I get
    the following errors when I try to install it (using make install) on
    8.2

    mv -f /etc/modules.conf /etc/modules.conf.old
    gawk -f mod_conf /etc/modules.conf.old > /etc/modules.conf
    echo "alias sound au8830" >> /etc/modules.conf
    echo "alias midi au8830" >> /etc/modules.conf
    mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/misc
    cp -f au8830.o /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/misc
    /sbin/depmod -a
    /sbin/rmmod au8830
    rmmod: module au8830 is not loaded
    make: [install] Error 1 (ignored)
    /sbin/modprobe au8830
    Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/misc/au8830.o will taint the kernel: n
    o license
    /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/misc/au8830.o: init_module: No such device
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including inva
    lid IO or IRQ parameters
    modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/misc/au8830.o failed
    modprobe: insmod au8830 failed
    make: [install] Error 255 (ignored)

    As I didn't change any hardware config, I don't think that IO or IRQ could be a
    problem (and I don't recall having to do anything to get it to run last time).

    Any ideas?

    hello,
    you may need to add a line to /etc/modules.conf and also it will probably help to do a depmod -a

    Re: turtle beach sound no longer works

    Here's my /etc/modules.conf file:

    alias usb-interface usb-uhci
    probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
    alias eth0 3c59x
    alias sound au8830
    alias midi au8830

    What would I add?

    More generally, what's going on here? My understanding is that modules are hunks of code that have to be in the kernel for an app to run, but don't have to stay there all the time (and are just loaded in as needed). Is depmod -a, kind of like mount -a, in that it loads all modules that are specified in the file (modules.conf), like mount -a mounts all entries that are specified in /etc/fstab?

    I tried depmod -a. It took about 30 seconds (PII450MHz, 384 mb ram),
    but didn't complain.

    I still can't hear CDs.

    I may have failed to mention (though you might have figured it out anyway)
    that I'm using Mandrake 8.2.

    Thanks again,

    M

    hello,
    Can you hear other sounds? Do you have any mp3's to try? of wav files? if you ahve a wav you can type cat file.wav > /dev/dsp in a terminal and you should hear it.

    i know this may sound dumb - but a problem of late seems to be people having the volume turned down...

    No, I can't hear any sound, though I don't have any wave
    files to play with.

    Here's something interesting. WHen I tried to go to KDE Media player,
    I got the following error:

    Sound server informational message:

    Error while initializing the sound driver:
    device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file
    or directory)

    The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

    I just tried to load the mixer to check the volume, but it was empty.

    I'm seriously stumped.

    ah thats right, mandrake uses devFS now...
    I would look here, I am not really up on devFS - but these LFS folks are
