    Nvidia Sound Card


    Hello I am posting here because I have ran out of ideas. I basically spent the whole day attempting to get Redhat 9 to be able to use sound.

    I downloaded the Nvidia drivers from there website, compiled and installed them. But when I run insmod i get these errors:


    Code:
    Using /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o
    /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_probe_codec_R84601c2b
    /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_set_adc_rate_R5307368c
    /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_set_dac_rate_R42924aaa
    Also I tried ALSA and had several more unresolved symbols, I have checked and my Kernel source and Running Kernel are the same. Could anyone out there tell me how to be able to play sound?

    use modprobe instead of insmod

    The reason i think variant suggested this is because modprobe will try to load other modules that a module depends on automatically (i may be wrong), whereas insmod does not.

    well i tried using that to but I always get errors.

    Is there anyother way to get my Onboard NVidia sound card to work?

    Also I tried ALSA, I got the drivers installed but when I run alsamixer or amixer it says cannot find default device. The wierd thing about that is the driver is running and I dont know why it says that it doesnt work. when Modprobe is used for the Nvidia driver it lists several undefined symbols
