Default Re: FC5 fail to load "nvsound.ko"

install nforce audio driver in FC5
I found a way to install nforce audio driver in fc5 withou the "unable to load nvsound.ko"

what you need is to apply the patch enclosed.
then you can install the driver without the problem above

1: download both the driver and the patch(nvsound.txt).
and go into the direction where driver and patch you store

2 ./ --extract-only
mv nvsound.txt NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310
cd NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310
patch -p0<./nvsound.txt
3: nforce-installer

Now i have install both the audio driver and nvnet driver in FC5,but
I can not stop the older driver being loaded while the system is start.
i have followed the instruction in RelealeNotes,
that is modify some item in /etc/modprobe.config

for audio driver
remove line
"alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio"

Add the following lines to the configuration file:

alias sound-slot-0 nvsound
alias snd-intel8x0 off
alias i810_audio off

install nvsound /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install nvsound ; sleep 1; /usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove nvsound { /usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove nvsound

Add the following lines to the /etc/rc.local

/usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1

for net driver

remove line in the configration file
alias eth0 forcedeth

Add the following lines to the configuration file

alias eth0 nvnet
alias forcedeth off

but after i reboot the system
i you "lsmod" to see if the driver have worked ,i found the forcedeth driver for net and the snd-intel8x0 driver for audio
are still runing .I can not stop them being loaded by modify the configuration file as above.
how can i stop the driver for audio and net FC5 offered.

I wish to have nvmixer audio settings automatically restored each time the nvsound driver loads by adding the lines(referred above) to the configuration file for 2.6 kernels

bu every time i shutdown the system it says fail to do this because can not find sound card

what is the matter with the audio driver ,how can i fix the problem referred above.
