    Audio card recommendations

    Hey Gang,

    I can't believe a search didn't pull up this thread but....

    I can't get my Turtle Beach Montego II sound card to work in Mandrake 8.2 - though I have had it working in 7.2 and 8.0. The chip is a 8830 (vortex?).

    If I can't get it working, maybe it's time to buy a new one. My machine is aging - PII 450 w/384 mb ram, but I don't play games with it anyway. I just want to listen to music while I work, record from my minidisk recorder (a sharp mt 770 - non-net version).

    Any recommendations? Inexpensive is good (<$40).

    Thanks in advance,

    M

    Cool! Well, I'd love to get it to work. Maybe you can help.

    I downloaded the aureal driver for linux au88xx.1.1.2

    I I tarred it tar xzvf, checked over the Makefile (no changes needed), and ran Make install. Here are the errors I received. For what it's worth, I already verified that the kernel source was installed.

    Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

    see the thread about the audigy - there were many errors like the ones you mention and it was finnalt solved when the system headers were linked to the kernel headers and properly matched.

    Re:Audio card recommendations

    Awesome!! This looks promising. I did the check to see if the kernel headers were there (rpm -q glibc-kernheaders), and got the message that they were not installed.

    I was just about to:

    mv /usr/include/linux old_linux_headers
    then do a
    ln -s ../src/linux/include/linux/ linux

    as per the post, but wasn't sure where I should be when I was doing that stuff.

    After I do that, should I then rerun the Make install part of my installation, or should I back up further and tar the stuff again (and start from scratch)?

    BTW, what are kernel headers - are they pieces of info about kernel parts or something?

    Thanks a bunch in advance. I'd love to get this card working again!

    doing that in /usr/include would be a good place

    kernel headers provide a bunch of info for the functions getting compiled. C files that have a #<include linux/something.h> get the info from /usr/include/linux

    Re:Audio card recommendations

    I feel like a dope!

    rpm -q glibc-kernelheaders
    returns
    package glibc-kernheaders is not installed

    Where are these? I can't find them using the package manager with Mandrake 8.2

    How can I install these?

    Thanks,

    M
