Installation of New sound card
« on: October 10, 2009, 01:20:44 am »
I am new to linux. I am try to install a new sound card -Creative  Blaster XFi Titanium Fatal1Ty and have down loaded the diver file. I am trying to install it in LinuxMCE.  Instruction are as follows on the driver read me:
Quick install

=============
In terminal,

1) Goto source directory
2) Execute make command as root
   make
   make install

Here is what I have done.
In Konsole terminal  at prompt: john@dcerouter:~$
I have run  tar on XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00
Then  cd XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00
Then ./ Configure
Then make
And here is where I am having the problem. After the make I thought that I was to go to the root (I am not sure how to do this. ) I tried make install and it fails with the following error --
Copy module files...
mkdir: cannot create directory /lib/modules/2.622-14-generic/kernal/drivers/ssound: Permission denied
make: ***[install] Error 1
Can any one help?

Hi,

To login as root at john@dcerouter

enter the following...

sudo su -

Then at the password prompt enter the password you created when you installed Kubuntu 810.

That got me to :
dcerouter_120872: /home/john/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00#
Is that the root I need?
Then I typed:
make install
and the following occurred:
Copy molude files...
Update module dependency relationships...
FATAL : error inserting ctxfi(/lib/modules/2.6 etc. .......
make: *** [install] Error1

I am not sure what that means. Any help?

Sounds like you aren't going to get that to work...
