RE: [Sound] Audigy sound driver problem with installing.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]<


but as i said, for the kernal i am using.  there is no such target for
/lib/modules/linux-2.4.18-24.8.0/build/configs/ does not exist because build is there but it is a broken target symlink and there is no /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-24.8.0/ to link to.

/lib/modules/linux-2.4.18-14/build/configs/ is there.  should i use this config file for the new kernel?  but it is from the old one, so it will probably not be appropriate.

In RedHat, you need to copy your kernels config file

/lib/modules/(kernel version)/build/configs/


/lib/modules/(kernel version)/build/.config

Just copy and rename it. And than run the "make" command
for the drivers.

where did the rpm put that source i installed.  the rpm install seemed to
work fine at the time.

think it searched in the SOURCES dir but still could not find what it

dir did not have anything to configure.  there were a lot of sources in
there though.

what it linked to origionally, but i am not sure.
