asus a7n8x sound does not work

i installed the newest nforce2 drivers on my debian sid box (kernel 2.4.20).
After compiling i tried to install the nvaudio module and the following error occured:

rage:~# modprobe nvaudio
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_probe_codec_R84601c2b
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_set_adc_rate_R5307368c
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_set_dac_rate_R42924aaa
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: insmod nvaudio failed

any ideas?

BTW: the network driver works fine

You need the ac97_codec module loaded.
Try either:
insmod ac97_codec
modprobe -a nvaudio (-a loads all dependancies).

I think that debian comes with an app called modconf that will put the appropriate modules both in your initscripts and your initrd image.
I would guess this comes from ac97_codec being required with i810_audio in recent kernels.

Hope it helps.

I have compiled a debian 2.4.23 kernel. If you compile your own kernel, it's very easy to install the sound driver for the asus A7N8X deluxe.
To compile your own kernel, there is enough information....

When you're doing make menuconfig, choose
Intel ICH (i8xx), SiS 7012, NVidia nForce Audio or AMD 768/811x
in Sound -> Sound Card Support

For the network card driver, just run the make and make install, it works...afterwards you can run modconf to insert the nvnet module
