Default Slackware 9 and NForce 2


I have an A7N8X-DLX board and I am running Slackware 9 with a 2.4.20 kernel.

I have followed all the instrctions in the NForce driver installation instructions but when I use "modprobe nvaudio" I get the following : (modprobe -a produces the same output)

root@bernie:~# modprobe nvaudio
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/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
Using modprobe with nvnet and usb-ohci works fine though. I can use my network card without problems and my usb joystick is detected.

Here is the output of depmod -a :

root@bernie:~# depmod -a
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o
My modules.conf file :
root@bernie:~# cat /etc/modules.conf
alias char-major-195 nvidia
alias eth0 nvnet
alias sound-slot-0 nvaudio
alias usb-interface usb-ohci
Does anyone have a clue of what might cause this?

Also, I am right in thinking that there is no way to get all sound converted to dolby digital under Linux? Are there any parameters/switches that can be passed to the nVidia audio module?
