    Question aureal vortex (au8830) drivers for linux.

    Do you know where I can download drivers for my Aureal Vortex (au8830) sound card?
    I have founded drivers here, but are for an older kernel's version.
    I have a 2.4.7-10 kernel. Can you help me?
    What is essential is invisible
    to the eye ...

    I think you're going to be looking for a while unless you happen to run into someone who's got the same card because Aureal went out of business over 2 years ago being bought out by someone (Creative I think). Best of luck to you though.
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    This is very weird. The same day I install Mandrake 8.1 to mess around with, and install my Geforce 2 drivers, someone else posts here asking how, and now, same thing! I have the Au8820 chipset (TBS Montego Dell OEM) and I've been trying to get it to work. Thus far, I have not succeeded. I've been trying for quite some time to recompile a kernel with soundcore.o support native (but not a module) but still haven't gotten the sourceforge drivers to work. The new kernels I'm compiling keep being unable to 'open initial console' which I haven't yet solved.

    If I get any luck using Mandrake 8.2, I'll drop you a line. (PM me sometime so I don't forget.) I get all these 'unrecognized symbol' bits when trying to load the modules, currently. I also had to update my version of... whatever the GNU utils bit that supplies the 'make' command was.

    Bottom line: I'm suffering too, and I don't know why it isn't working.
