    compiling the 2.6.1 kernel

    I've compiled the new kernel but I can't get the sound to work. Also the text frame buffer won't display my monitor just says that the refresh rate is to high. and when I try to compile and install the alsa modules it installs them to the 2.4.22 modules directory instead of the 2.6.1 modules directory.

    thanx in advance for the help.

    instead of ALSA i would reccomend OSS....and are you using M's in the kernel? or *'s? as for the refresh rate... try and run xf86config as root in the CLI...hope that helps

    OSS is deprecated in 2.6.x... ALSA is now built-in to the kernel.. you don't have to compile the ALSA modules separately anymore.. but you do have to have the latest alsautils installed....
