Re: sound still not working
The zImage, bzImage issue is probably because zImage doesn't contain
enough compression to fit the kernel into the required size properly -
hence why bzImage was formed - bz compression is much more effective than
The dmesg line is because the cat /proc/pci command has been replaced by
something else which I can never remember, but still works for backwards
compatibility - so don't worry about that message.
To the main issue.. do you have in /etc/modules:
In my /etc/modules I have soundcore and es1371 (because my card
specifically said es1371). I'm not sure whether that is necessary, I'm
just grasping at straws... It was a while ago I set mine up.
