    AC97 SOUND DRIVER for Fedora Core 4--PLEASE HELP


    hello, i have Fedora Core 4

    i am having trouble installing a driver for my audio. when i open the driver in terminal, it comes up with an error that says "Kernel source could not be found on your system. Please install the kernel source and try again." and then it says "locations searched for kernel sources:
    /usr/src/linux-2.4
    /usr/src/linux
    /usr/src/2.6.14-1.1653_FC4

    i downloaded the driver from: http://developer.intel.com/design/motherbd/linux/ under the Red hat 9 list and i downloaded the Audio: AC97 one.

    If you could please respond that would be a great help. thank you so much.

    i downloaded kernel sources from: http://www.kernel.org/. I downloaded the link at the top--2.6.15 NOT the snapshot one.

    Is that the kernel sources you're talking about?
    If so where do i put them?

    thanks so much for the help

    use the sources on your installation cd's.

    According to the Fedora website, you can get the kernel sources easily by doing (as root):
    Code:
    up2date --get-source kernel
    BTW, have you tried running alsaconf and configuring your sound card that way? Try (as root):
    Code:
    /sbin/alsaconf
    and then doing
    Code:
    /sbin/alsamixer
    to turn all the volumes up. Lastly, do
    Code:
    /sbin/alsactl store
    to save the settings.

    when i type the code you said for up2date it came up with an error:
    "An error has occured:
    yum.Errors.RepoError"

    when i tried the alsaconf it said "No such file or directory" in the sbin
    i looked for it and i couldn't find it in there either

    anything else i can try or is there somewhere else i should look for the alsaconf?

    thanks

    Try (as root):
    Code:
    yum install kernel-source
    As for the soundcard, try using system-config-soundcard instead.
