Description of problem:
I know you chose to do this, but you can't.
Most newer sound cards use the alsa sound system, and it won't install
without kernel source.
In addition, the kernel source on the download site does not match the
binaries. Nor does it compile:
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x5cf8): In function
: undefined reference to `acpi_table_print_madt_entry'
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x5d68): In function

make[1]: *** [kallsyms] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build alsa sound driver
2.Note failed dependencies on missing kernel headers

Actual Results:  Drivers installed in old (Redhat 7.3) directories

Expected Results:  Sound

"In addition, the kernel source on the download site does not match

Yes it does. It's the exact source I fed to our build system.

"Nor does it compile"

If you use the same config options we used to generate our kernels, it
compiles just fine.  We cannot test every possible combination of
options. For this reason, user-compiled kernels are unsupported.

Comment 2 Lee Olsen 2004-04-14 17:10:26 UTC
You're right. Your web site was taking me to "updates" rather than the
base release.
I'll file separate kernel bugs related to ACPI and ide-probe module
compilation problems if current kernels have the same problems 2174 does.
