Hey all!!I ve just installed vector and i really like it!Got two problems though:

Problem one:Soundblaster!i ve downloaded the driver and i ve used the "make" command BUT i cannot install and i get this error:

Update module dependency relationships...
FATAL: Error inserting ctxfi (/lib/modules/2.6.27.12/kernel/drivers/ssound/ctxfi.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
make: *** [install] Error 1

Second problem:how do I get Vector to automount a different ntfs hard disc device?
I ve edited the fstab with:

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/win ntfs-3g defaults,allow_other,umask=0,users,nls=utf8,noexec 0 0

(that worked for zenwalk i think)..
Thanks in advance and sorry for the newbish questions!

To automount a device, go to VASM, Filesystem, Mount Partitions. You can then choose to add a new partition to automount on boot or stop mounting a partition on boot.

Hi..I do not have this card but happened across the link just before seeing your post

It looked as though the poster thought the card did not work but found that it worked as root and then found a solution in permissions..I had thought the alsa drivers were installed which should include the sbl card..I am evidently mistaken somewhere...and very sorry...hopefully someone will shed light

it may be helpfull to know which soundblaster you have and what driver you downloaded.

here are some links that led me to believe the card is supported by vl and in gslapt if I type alsa in the search box it lists the driver as installed

Thanks for your replies...

Here is my card(extreme music)
http://www.soundblaster.com/products/product.asp?category=1&subcategory=208&product=14066

and here is the driver i 'm trying to install.
http://support.creative.com/downloads/(the second one)

I thought that since i cannot even install the driver(i ve done it successfully in zenwalk),there must be something basic that i m missing....

well...I am now curious..but have no idea
 it looks like the unknown symbol or parameter is a symbol..snd_card_new... as posted in dmesg

there is a warning to this affect during make along with several others regarding pcm on this box

dmesg: ctxfi: Unknown symbol snd_card_new

make file suggests modules=ctxfi.ko ..which is in /lib/modules/2.6.27.12/kernal/drivers/ssound/

when you make install it creates the dir ssounds and in it is the/ ctxfi.ko so that is the module with the undefined symbol within? that the kernal does not know how to define?

uninstall removes this directory and update module dependancy relationships
so the issue lies in the dependancy relationships?

if that makes sence..then the question may be how does one define snd_card_new.

would the installed alsa driver be a conflict?

thats all my puny brain could come up with...lol..like it helps

hope someone can actually help...evidently the card is not working after the install and reboot

cheers
