Cannot load nvaudio driver (NVidia nforce)
Built NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.tar.gz
on a Debian 3.0 system.
(No debs are supplied for Debian systems, so we have to work from the tar files).

nvnet driver loads without problems, but:
hexa:~# modprobe nvaudio
/lib/modules/2.4.19/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_probe_codec_R84601c2b
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

/lib/modules/2.4.19/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.19/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.19/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: insmod nvaudio failed

Any ideas?

You compiled the drivers using incorrect kernel headers I think, really use the correct ones.

On the other hand I wouldn't even use the nvaudio kernel module. In the past this driver was really needed. After the driver release everyone could see that the nvaudio driver is just a modded i810 audio driver. The only changes include that the output messages don't output i810 but some nvidia stuff and that the driver includes the nvidia pci id.

Since months the normal i810 audio driver contains the nvidia pci id too so you don't need the nvidia audio driver.

Just use "i810" likely that driver is also more recent and bugfree.

I racked my mind on the same problem a while ago. You must load soundcore.o (may allready be part of kernel) then ac97_codec.o (I think you can make kernel complie this by compling a module for i810_audio.o) the nvaudio.o.

insmod soundcore.o,
insmod ac97_codec.o
insmod nvaudio.o

Hope this helps.

You should use the i810_audio driver. Nforce driver 1.0-0241 provides it for you if your system doesn't have a good copy of it.

Just wondering but in the /nforce/nvaudio makefile it calls : MODULE = nvaudio.o
And towards the bottom you see, mv i810_audio.o $(MODULE)
Isn't this simply renaming i810_audio.o to nvaudio.o? and wouldn't loading just i810_audio after installing load the kernel version of i810_audio?

The only reason I ask this is when I build 2.4.19 's i810 audio support it locks my box when I load it, but the version in 1.0-0241 dose not lock my box.
