    ALSA Woes.

    Trying to get gnome2.4 working...

    I ran across a problem i have had for quite some time now to do with esd. The problem is actually ALSA not detecting my card.

    Ive recompiled and recompiled and recompiled my kernel. Eventually ive figured the best method of getting the sound card to marginally work is to just compile it into the kernel.

    In my dmesg i ran across this as being the root of my problems..

    kobject_register failed for Ensoniq AudioPCI (-17)
    Call Trace:
    [<c0245285>] kobject_register+0x55/0x60

    ALSA device list:
    No soundcards found.
    Anyone get any idea or make any sense of that whatsoever?

    Seems like a kernel bug, actually. The call trace seems like a 2.5 or 2.6 kernel. Is that what you're using? In that case, it might be understandable that it doesn't work as it should.
