nforce network ok, sound cannot install
Linux nForce Driver - IA32 Version: 1.0-0310
debian sarge 2.6.16
I already compile the kernel for my 2 systems and all is fine.
One system is GA-K8N51GMF9, I downloaded the above driver
the network driver does compile, install and work without problem, but the sound driver complaint about different version of kernel.
I cannot see why since they come from the same package, any idea?

Re: nforce network ok, sound cannot install

The same error on Debian linux with asus A8N-E, latest stable kernel ( and latest stable 32bit nforce driver:

The nforce network adapter working properly, but the soundcard setup is exits with error, here is a picture about it:


And the installer log:


Please help us!
(the appropirate kernel source installed, and the OSS support is compiled to the kernel).



MOD: I tried to compile the module manual , by extracting the source, running make an make install. Ecerything is fine, but when I try to modprobe the "nvsound" module, I got this:


According to the error message, I look at the "dmesg" logs:


If anybody have an idea, please share it with us.

Thanks a lot!

Re: nforce network ok, sound cannot install
looking at your first link, I do have the same error.
I did not try to compile it manually.
Tomorrow I'll try to do more testing, I let you know the result
;) worse case, I can always use my old SBlive for the time being.
May be not really clever, but still better than nothing.

Re: nforce network ok, sound cannot install
Ok Try this, this should work.
It is not from me, I have found it on the web
NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310-pkg1.run --extract-only
mv nvsound.txt NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310
cd NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310
patch -p0<./nvsound.txt
run nforce-installer

Here the link from where I got the info:

below is the patch

Re: nforce network ok, sound cannot install
I try it as soon as possible, but I need to recompile my kernel, will be back in a hour.


MOD: Yes! With the patch I can install the audio driver too. (kernel ). And its working. But I can only use the analog outputs, how can I setup the optical output???

Re: nforce network ok, sound cannot install

Scroll down that page, there is some very good stuff.
I cannot try, because I have nothing optical to connect to
