Hi guys,

I'd like to know if someone can help me with my linux system... i'm getting unresolved symbols in my soundcard modules wich prevents me from loading it with insmod.... but if i do a modprobe of the same module, it get's detected and loaded without a prob.
What could do that it loads with modprobe and not insmod?

I can give more info if needed, but i don't know what could be usefull... just tell me what u need to know.

That's normal. Modprobe finds the dependencies a module needs and loads them first. Insmod just tries to load the module.

Ok. Thanks.

I thought i had compiled something wrong and broke my server. Good to know that i wont have to reinstall everything.
