Soundcard problem on knoppix
I am running a computer with both Windows XP and knoppix installed on the same hard drive. My sound works fined on windows XP but when I boot knoppix it doesn't work. So i went into the sound card configuration program and ti detected my sound card and everything but it comes up with this message that says: "The module used for your card emu10k1.o, is not currently in your module search path. Please verify that your kernel modules are correctly installed." How do I fix this??

If it's any help, here's the path for emu10k module on my Mandrake 10.1 system:

Naf, newer modules end in .ko. If you are going to search use something a little more likely to find the file you are after like: -
find /lib | grep emu10
This won't search the whole filesystem so it's still fast but it will actually find variations of emu10k which searching for the .o file won't.

Lynch, I know, that was the point. But it doesn't help to suggest overly tight search criteria on an unknown box.
Itkenbo, if the emu module just doesn't exist you are either going to have to find a knoppix package that has it or get a knoppix kernel source and compile the modules (you'll probably end up recompiling the kernel complete as well). I'm not entirely sure what this entails in knoppix but knoppix should have some decent readme's on this. Of course you can compile the emu10k1 driver into the kernel statically and bypass the module exercise, there's pros and cons to this approach.

Actually a much better alternative than all suggested so far is to use 'modprobe -l | grep emu', this avoids assumptions on where the system modules are located entirely.

no I think it exists cause here's the results from the instructions ya'll gave me.
knoppix@0[~]$ /sbin/lsmod | grep emu10k1.o
root@0[knoppix]# modprobe emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.27/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.27/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.27/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.27/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod emu10k1 failed
root@0[knoppix]# find /lib | grep emu10
root@0[knoppix]# modprobe -l | grep emu
see the emu10k1 module thing is there. So how do I install it correctly or whatever? Also i'm new to knoppix I know quite a bit about computers but i've always wondered what is a module and what is a kernel?For God loved the world so much, that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have eternal life...

uname -r tells you which kernel you have live.

Can you post the output of ... lspci
