    Unhappy snd-intel8x0 related module


    on starting ELX BIZ DESK 4.0(upgraded to2.6.22)
    message comes of mounting NULL device at/dev/dsp

    these modules
    snd-intel8x0
    snd-seq-oss
    snd-pcm-oss

    need to be modprobe in shell
    and yes sound already muted
    so alsamixer also need to increas/enable Master pcm sound tags
    after that sound works
    and yes
    sound related key on the laptop board/(Key-board) not works for as shortcut

    do i need to install directly on Linux kernel by making (*) instead of (M)

    or there some alternate way to make it at/before boot time
    is (*) helps if i exactly know what driver is there
    cause snd-intel8x0m also shown at control panel's hw browser

    I hope some one have special powers given by god to help me on this problem

    The inevitable question - what distribution+version of Linux are you running? Also, was it factory installed, or did you install it from a live/install CD?

    I'm not familiar with that distribution. How did you update the kernel? Did you build it from sources, or did you update it with some package manager? In any case, I think that you need to build the audio drivers into the kernel instead of loadable modules as you surmised. The fact that loading them manually from the shell gives you working sound is promising.

    thanks for reply
    the kernel was 2.4.22 and other information
    (distrowatch.com/elx)
    i upgraded by source from kernel website
    and
    do at root where makefile exist
    make defconfig(default so that atleast boot)
    make menconfig(so that i remove ethernets 8139c+ and keep using 8139too
    intel i915,intelagp,intelfb, snd-intel8x0 and other(afraid of unable to hear sound), MMC card, Linux LOGO,BlueTooth(USB) like all thus which i need)
    all that kind so i work my own driver kernel(no waste driver lie on disk)

    there is one more problem regarded to hardware
    that is
    inserting USB storage,CD not automatically mounted for using
    there too
    i need to
    mount /dev/sda1(ovly USB) ./usb(directory created by hand)
    and on CD
    mount cdrom
    mount:fstype supermount not supported
    i also found solution for mounting device but not snd-intel8x0
    that util-linux-ng wih want glibc and wich want gcc(./configure --disable-libssp --disable-nls) and all of that long chains.

    Q.Any thing that do the hardware job automatically?
    and if i make snd-intel8x0 as part of kernel will it give up at boot(elx)

    thanks in advance
    gr8ly thanks
    I hope you understand language i used if something is non-understand please reply
