I run sndconfig to configure my sound card, a cs4281. Sndconfig detects
the card and shows me the location of the module it's going to ask me to
load. Then it tries to configure the card and fails with the following:
module <path-to-module/cs4281 can not be found. I manually change to <path-
to-module, check, module cs4281.o is in fact there. I try using modprobe
to load the module, and get the same error.always 1. run sndconfig, choose
sound card, when atempted module loading occurs problem occurs.module is
not loading, no changes are made to /etc/conf.modules or /etc/modules.conf
what ever it is now.some urgency in this issue. Again this is with a stock
install, I haven't upgrade any packages, nor have I found any resolutions
to similar issues.
Steps to Reproduce:
What exact error do you get from 'modprobe cs4281'?
when I run modprobe cs4281 I get the error: <path-to-cs4281> module not found.
I manually check the location where modprobe is going and in fact the module is
in fact there.
Are you just doing 'modprobe cs4281'; for modprobe, you need to make sure
you *don't* specify a path.
Are the modules owned by root?
What happens if you run 'depmod -ae'?

I have the same error on a newly installed 7.1 on a Toshiba Satellite Pro
equipped with cs4281.
The exact error message for - modprobe cs4281 - is:
/lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/sound/cs4281/cs4281.o: init_module: No
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters
I have runned before:
insmod sound without error.
depmod -ae run without exceptions.
That implies that the module loaded fine, but didn't find the card; as I mentioned
in private e-mail, I'd need the output of 'lspci -v' to debug it further.

typescript of various output including lspci -v
OK, this appears to be a kernel problem in that it can't find the device.
I believe Rik and Thomas Woller were working on a fix for this at one point...

lspci -v output
oops ... sorry ... this is the note ...
I have installed Mandrake 8.0 on my Toshiba laptop and the sound works fine at
the first hit ...
Is possible to take this module from this distribution and use in Red Hat ?
(I am not a very skilled Linux geeks, so if you can ... help me ... !)
moreover I have read a bug report 47199 in which the card works - even if not
very well !
Are there some news from Rik and Thomas Woller ?
hi from Italy
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
