After many many times of trying, i am about ready to give up on trying to get sound going on my Laptop. MY laptop is a Dell D266XT.
From two diffrent dell documents, i have decided that my sound card is either a Crystal 4237B, or a Neomagic NM3298. But this, really is not my problem, the conflicting information.
The problem is that when ever i try to load either of the modules, i get many many unresolved symbol messages. This is about this sixth time i have tried to go about this, with numerous kernel rebuilds.
Here is an example of one of the messages.
What is the problem here?Quote:
/lib.modules/2.4.25.040319/kernel/sound/isa/cs423x/snd-cs4326.o: unresolved symbol snd_card_new_Ra22f2665
According to this document, this can be solved by recompiling the kernel cleanly, and the same with ALSA.
Could this be fixed by moving to the 2.6 kernel series. I suppose i'd be willing to put in the work to do the move (The only reason i havent, is bcause debian's packages are too old for 2.6, so i'd have to do a bunch of manual upgrades.
