Description Adam Lucarz 2003-08-16 12:08:02 UTC
Emerge nforce-audio compiles the nvaudio module, but forgets to compile the 
needed ac97_codec.c. It seems to be a general problem of the nvidia's sources. 
I worked around it with compiling the ali soundcard as module of the current 
kernel (2.4.20-gentoo-r5). So a copying of the ac97_codec.o into the modules' 
directory makes it working.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge nforce-audio
2.modprobe nvaudio

Actual Results:  
nvaudio did not load because of missing links

Expected Results:  
be loaded

A generic workaround is to simply always compile the i810 audio driver, as
nvaudio has the same dependancies as it.

did you have sound configured as a module in the kernel?
Comment 3 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-17 01:15:18 UTC
is there any reason not to remove this package from portage?  Aren't the changes in 2.4.22 and onward?  Why do you need this?
Comment 4 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-20 00:51:48 UTC
marking wontfix as this package will most likely be removed from portage soon anyways as its use is deprecated (it has been merged into the kernel and is no longer updated upstream)
