Hi again Dan and all,

Every thing goes fine here.
Please every one should include your Linrad version with your Linux
distribution together with gcc version when you post for help.

[KB5MY] Hi Kohjin,

My packages:

  gcc: 3.2  (Don't know where to look for the sub-version)
  Kernel: 2.4.18-14 (I bought the boxed set new last weekend)
  Linrad: 00.48
  OSS: 3.9.7f

Here's the latest message I get from OSS when I install:

"Checking for any previously installed sound drivers...
*** Sound driver is already running - trying to unload it ***

You appear to have the kernel level sound driver installed as a loadable
module. Unload it by executing rmmod sound and try installing OSS/Linux

If this error repeats again you probably have the sound driver being loaded
automagically by the kerneld daemon. In this case you should remove all
files from all subdirectories of /lib/modules in addition to executing
rmmod sound. After that you probably should reboot the system before
trying to
install OSS again. Edit /etc/modules.conf and remove the 'alias sound ...'
line in case it exist and replace it by 'alias sound off'.

Also add a line containing 'alias char-major-14 off' to /etc/modules.conf.
Am I allowed to do these changes automatically for you (Y/N) ?"

When I execute "rmmod sound", I get

  "sound: Device or resource busy"

When I answer "Y" to the automatic changes question, I get:

  "Trying to disable the conflicting sound driver
   /etc/modules.conf backed up to /etc/modules.conf.pre-oss
   Unloading the existing sound driver
   If your system freezes now, please reboot and disable the current driver
   audigy: Device or resource busy
   Failed to unload module 'audigy'
   sound: Device or resource busy
   Failed to unload module 'sound'"

The reference to "sound" is the Delta44 card.

Then there's the issue with the strange character in line 818 of
Linrad's main.c.  That could be something as simple as my choosing
for my system to be US English-only when I installed it.

Unfortunately, I've only been working with Linux since I opened
the box last weekend, so things that seem obvious or simple to
experienced users aren't going to be as obvious to me for some
time to come.

...and I still have to download and extract the OSS package via
the FTP sw on my Win2K machine and transfer via CD-RW, as the
Linux FTP doesn't want to work through the proxy server (but the
Mozilla browser and companion e-mail client like the proxy just

Thanks to all for your assistance and patience.

I have replaced a 10GB disk contained RHL 7.3 to one contained 8.0
and have downloaded a newer version of oss397f-linux-v2x.tar.gz
to just make it sure.

My RHL 8.0:
   kernel 2.4.18-14
   gcc 3.2-7
   linrad lir00-48

Installation including 'make' has been completed without any problem
except "the multi-line string literal problem in main.c" Dan pointed.
This error can be solved by a simple edit.
Also, OSS driver was installed and Linrad works flawlessly.

I go back to RHL 7.3 again as 8.0 is too heavy on my slooow PIII.
