    module question concerning sound card installation


    Okay, I need a little help on this question as I'm a bit confused. How do I check the kernel on my computer to see if its loading (or recognizing, whatever its called) the ES1470 module? I'm having problems with getting my sound card to function, and I was told "Debian has a module here -- kernel/drivers/sound module/es1470"


    Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r2 using the 2.4 kernel and
    Ensoniq AudioPCI / SoundBlaster PCI (ES1370)

  2. #2
    Try to "modprobe module_name"

    To check if its loaded, execute "lsmod"

    Good luck

    Okay, ..... please help me out with this....

    I logged in to Linux as root, typed dmesg and saw this a few lines from the prompt .....

    NET4: linux TCP/IP 1.0 for NET4.0
    IP Protocols: TCP/IP, UDP, TCP, IGMP
    Adding Swap: 294328K swap-space (priority -1)
    debian:~#


    I then typed modprobe es1370 and received this:

    es1370: version v0.37 time 10:28:23 April 14 2002
    PCI: Found IRQ5 for device 00:09.0
    es1370: found adaptor at io 0xe800 irq 5
    es1370: features: joystick off, line in, mic impedance0
    debian:~#


    I then typed dmesg again and saw this:

    Adding Swap: 294328K swap-space (priority -1)
    es1370: version v0.37 time 10:28:23 April 14 2002
    PCI: Found IRQ5 for device 00:09.0
    debian:~#


    Does this mean that the module is NOT loading during the first boot, but after I typed "modprobe" it loaded?? And if so, would it be best (ideal) to configure the kernel to load the module?

    Sorry, I'm a little confused about this. (BTW, I'm trying to find out if the kernel is "loading" it when it boots.) Thank you BTW for helping me with this, its appreciated greatly.
