After many many times of trying, i am about ready to give up on trying to get sound going on my Laptop. MY laptop is a Dell D266XT.

From two diffrent dell documents, i have decided that my sound card is either a Crystal 4237B, or a Neomagic NM3298. But this, really is not my problem, the conflicting information.

The problem is that when ever i try to load either of the modules, i get many many unresolved symbol messages. This is about this sixth time i have tried to go about this, with numerous kernel rebuilds.

Here is an example of one of the messages.
/lib.modules/2.4.25.040319/kernel/sound/isa/cs423x/snd-cs4326.o: unresolved symbol snd_card_new_Ra22f2665
What is the problem here?

According to this document, this can be solved by recompiling the kernel cleanly, and the same with ALSA.

Could this be fixed by moving to the 2.6 kernel series. I suppose i'd be willing to put in the work to do the move (The only reason i havent, is bcause debian's packages are too old for 2.6, so i'd have to do a bunch of manual upgrades.

yeah unfortunately a symbol error is a kernel error, I had the problem with something and had to recompile the kernel to fix it, and get whatever it was to work.

Check your kernel compile information etc. Might be as simple as something that you don't have activated in the sound options.

Good white :). when i hook up my speakers to this system i'm probably going to have to do the same. Glad it worked for you though. Wav is a good start. THough if wave works the rest should...
