it seems the new version of modutils now tries to pass io=0x220 directly to
sound.o (which it doesn't directly support)
Try commenting out the alias
#alias sound sb
and running update-modules, to see if the module loads
Nope, no luck. I still get:
Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.2.10/modules.dep
/lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o: invalid parameter parm_io
/lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o
/lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/sound.o: insmod sound failed
..from a modprobe sound. Update-modules runs fine, as does depmod -a. I
might also note that esd claims that /dev/dsp no longer exists. I'd also
like to repeat my question regarding the gen_sound alias:
# Soundcard: alias for gen_sound needed!
alias /dev/sound gen_sound
What should I alias gen_sound to and how do I set it properly? Unless I'm
losing it, I tried to set the gen_sound alias to sound and the entry
disappeared after I ran depmod and update-modules.
Once again, thanks in advance for any help that anyone can provide.
P.S. I've just noticed something very exasperating relating to my possible
insanity as stated in the previous paragraph: running update-modules wipes
out my changes! Thus, my commenting out of alias sound sb was uncommented
and my alias gen-sound sound was similarly removed. What is the correct way
to modify the /etc/modules.conf file?
