i installed gentoo with genkernel but it didnt have a module for my soundcard. So i used make menuconfig and selected the module i needed setting it to 'M'. I then saved my changes and exited. I then ran make modules && make modules_install. I then had the module i needed but when i modprobe it i get a few errors. I read that i might be more successfull to instead of selecting 'M' for the module in make menuconfig i compile it into the kernel by changing it to a *. When i do that and exit and save changes what command do i need to enter (i.e. before i had to enter make modules && make modules_install)? Also will i need to do anything else to get the driver working or because it is compiled into the kernel will it do it itself?
Please remember i installed genkernel, so im not sure if this will have any unwanted effects when recompiling the kernel.
