Description dave 2001-05-27 01:00:19 UTC
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.

What exact error do you get from 'modprobe cs4281'?

Comment 2 dave 2001-05-28 06:20:47 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-06-10 00:22:28 UTC
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:

Using /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/sound/cs4281/cs4281.o
/lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/sound/cs4281/cs4281.o: init_module: No 
such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including 
invalid IO or IRQ parameters

I have runned before:

insmod soundcore
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.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2001-06-12 15:58:00 UTC
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...

I ahe

Comment 10 Need Real Name 2001-07-05 21:56:25 UTC
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 ... !)


Comment 11 Need Real Name 2001-07-05 21:59:31 UTC
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
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
