Nforce 0256 driver install problem
I am running Redhat 9 and so I decided to try and compile this from tarball. All development packages are installed as is the kernel source. I had no problems with the new geforce drivers. When I attempt to install the new audio driver I get the following:

[root@upstairs nvaudio]# make

Same whether it's root or regular user. I really want to make use of teh SPDIF out on this board... any ideas? Andy?

nVidia has precompiled packages for RedHat if i'm not mistaken. When you really want to compile it yourself, I sugest to build your own kernel (with a vanilla source tree) as well.

The problem is that when you build your own kernel, ac97 won't be compiled with it by default. I worked around this by including via686 sound support as a module (any other AC97 driver is possible as well)

This will place a module ac97codec.o in /lib/<kernelversion>/kernel/driver/sound/

Hmm ac97 audio is a module by default in Redhat 9's default kernel..... audio works but it is analog stereo - the new nforce drivers include spdif out support and that is what I am after.... the object files I have in my kernel/drivers/sound/ directory are:

ac97_codec.o aedsp16.o cs4281 gus.o msnd_classic.o pas2.o soundcore.o via82cxxx_audio.o
ac97.o ali5455.o cs46xx.o i810_audio.o msnd.o pss.o sound.o v_midi.o
aci.o audigy emu10k1 mad16.o msnd_pinnacle.o rme96xx.o sscape.o wavefront.o
ad1816.o awe_wave.o es1370.o maestro3.o nm256_audio.o sb_lib.o trident.o ymfpci.o
ad1848.o btaudio.o es1371.o maestro.o opl3.o sb.o trix.o
ad1889.o cmpci.o esssolo1.o maui.o opl3sa2.o sgalaxy.o uart401.o
adlib_card.o cs4232.o forte.o mpu401.o opl3sa.o sonicvibes.o uart6850.o

As you can see ac97_codec.o, ac97.o, i810
_audio.o etc etc are in there....

Any more suggestions? Keep them coming please... I really want this to work!

That's a bug in the 0256 driver. It's in dev, hopefully we'll have a new version out soon.

I'm sorry for the delay...


jimbob0i0 04-15-03 07:07 PM

Thanks for the update Andy....

I'm looking forward to this finally working....

I wondered why it was not the driver presented at the nvidia site when the linux nforce link was clicked on....

Well I guess teh driver teams are nearly there :)

Am I reading this thread correctly? Are nforce users getting SPDIF support? I know it is something Jimbo is after, but until now it was not possible under linux... is this changing?


Andy Mecham 04-15-03 11:30 PM

1.0-0256 has SPDIF support.

SuSE 8.2 on Asus A7N8X Deluxe no sound
Hi !

I have download the new drivers ( .rpm for SuSE 8.2 ) and install it but they don't work. The Installation was fine.

My Motherboard is an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe PCB 1.04 with Bios ver. 1003.

The NVIDIA Soundcard on A7N8X is connected on the SPDIF output with the Creative Soundblaster Extigy ( SPDIF IN ).

On windows all works.

Can everyone tell me how to configure the Driver or the SuSE 8.2 distrubution ( modules.conf etc. ) ?

At this moment i don't use the onboard components ( FireWire, NVIDIA Lan, COM 1, COM 2, LPT, Game )

Enabled are USB, 3COM, S-ATA

I only use AGP ( MSI GForce4 4600 VTD ), PCI Slot 5 / ICP-Vortex GDT 6113 RS U160 Raid Controller

nvaudio compile problem
1 Attachment(s)
Same thing happened to me. It seems likely that recent kernels have changed in a way that is incompatible with the nvidia code. I am using 2.4.20-9 from RH update. However, I fixed the compilation issue with the attached file, which you are welcome to try. Use:

patch < -p0 nforce.txt

before compiling.

Digital audio is working sound now :-)
