http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I'm a noob to the Linux scene but I'm not dumb when it comes to computers and all that. Im trying to install the drivers for a X-Fi ExtremeGamer sound card but it wont work. I figured out how to get into the parent directory and i enter this command "make" and i get this in the terminal. Code: make -C /lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/build M=/home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00 make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-16-generic'   CC [M]  /home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00/xfi.o /home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00/xfi.c:14:26: error: sound/driver.h: No such file or directory /home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00/xfi.c: In function ‘ct_card_probe’: /home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00/xfi.c:55: error: implicit declaration of function ‘snd_card_new’ /home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00/xfi.c:55: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast make[2]: *** [/home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00/xfi.o] Error 1 make[1]: *** [_module_/home/madog/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-16-generic' make: *** [all] Error 2 madog@madog-desktop:~/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00$ And when i run the "make install" command, i get this. Code: Copy module files... mkdir: cannot create directory `/lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/kernel/drivers/ssound': Permission denied make: *** [install] Error 1 madog@madog-desktop:~/Downloads/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00$ Can someone please tell me what im doing wrong or if I'm just SOL with this sound card? Thank You, Vince (Hardware)
