Description merwan kashouty 2003-01-04 13:22:51 UTC
i was searching the nvidia-linux forums and found a link to a commercial sound driver to use on my nforce2 board that allows pretty much full functionality of the harware under linux , so i was like 35 bucks no problem. well problem is that the OSS driver install writes a static modules.conf that screws up the way update-modules works with modules.d but you guys know more then me. could there possibly be an ebuild for this ? i would really like to keep these drivers and there is no way i am giving up gentoo. ciao

I'm running on an NFORCE2 with everything working (freely). More specifically on an ASUS A7N8X... I have had to switch to the 2.4.20-ac2 kernel and still apply two patches to that to get IDE and the 3Com NIC to work. (Mostly this is all PCI ID's) If you don't want to go trough all that pain, the nforce-net ebuild source also has an nvaudio patch inside witch makes your kernel recognise the PCI id's for audio but the former is more complete. Not really related to your comments on the OSS driver however,,,

Problem is that we cannot host the tarballs, and for my currency $35 is a bit steep to try and get an ebuild going =). Can you try Bart's suggestions, or is this really needed ? If so, try to create an ebuild ? Thanks.
Comment 3 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) 2003-08-04 13:57:45 UTC
I cannot fix this without a sample build, or donation of the drivers :(
Comment 4 merwan kashouty 2003-08-05 10:11:33 UTC
sample build as ebuild? as for the driver the is a trial version avaliable that work with portage and then allow a a user if he/she chooses to to purchase the license for it. have you looked at the site?
Comment 5 merwan kashouty 2003-08-05 10:13:51 UTC
oh an a side not the original problems that started this bug opensound addressed ... the ebuild for the trial driver though would still be worthwhile ... i use alsa now but still maintain the license for the driver i bought for my system.
Comment 6 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) 2003-08-05 14:16:23 UTC
Right, sorry, I did not look again. Real reason I guess (apart from being misinformed, and not double checking again), is that I do not use OSS, or 2.4 for that matter anymore.
Comment 7 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) 2003-08-05 14:17:06 UTC
Please assign to somebody with 2.4 kernel that use OSS.
Comment 8 Tavis Ormandy (RETIRED) 2003-08-17 09:07:06 UTC
I use oss, assigning to self...
Comment 9 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) 2005-08-20 05:28:23 UTC
OSS is obsolete, this bug is obsolete as well. Closing WONTFIX.
