When I start linux i can hear the startup sound. However, when i play a mp3 file it does not play. So i install the sound driver that comes with the hardware. I have NFORCE-linux-x86_64-1.0-0311-pkg1.run. When i execute this using
sh NFORCE-linux-x86_64-1.0-0311-pkg1.run. I get error saying
" No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface." I need to hear sound not just when linux starts and ends but also in between. How is it possible. ?
ERROR: The kernel header file '/lib/modules/126.96.36.199-1.1-default/build/include/linux/kernel.h' does not exist. The most likely reason
for this is that the kernel source path '/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-1.1-default/build' is incorrect. Please make sure you have
installed the kernel source files for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source'
rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
