Hi guys, I have a problem where I cant figure it out. Newly clean installed Gentoo on my new disk with kernel 4.3.2 and compiled snd_usb_audio as module but I cant find it in alsamixer.
I can find the USB with dmesg and lsusb.

So I tried to modprobe snd_usb_audio which says modules not found and when I do find /lib/modules/4.3.2-gentoo/ I don't find the snd modules. I also did cat /proc/asound/cards which gives the same result not finding the card.

So I don't understand why the modules are not there when I did make modules_install. Anyone got guidance or tips for me?

Here is my kernel config in /boot: https://bpaste.net/show/de1bc73522f6

FYI I also use a pci soundcard which is Asus Xonar Essence STX which works fine for me.

dcd94,

What does
Code:
uname -a
say?
That's from your running kernel. Look at the date/time. That's the build date/time of the running kernel.
Compare that to when you remember building your kernel.

Its not an error, to your install anyway, to build one kernel and run another.

It says:
Code:
uname -a
Linux Fractal 4.3.2-gentoo #1 SMP Mon Dec 14 15:26:18 CET 2015 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2700K CPU @ 3.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


I modified my kernel yesterday for them being a module.

I tried today to do make modules_install comand and I got this following error: https://bpaste.net/show/cedfb54f924b

Any idea what would cause this?

dcd94,

Did you forget to mount /boot or to update grub.cfg?
Your running kernel was made at Mon Dec 14 15:26:18 CET

You may well have fixed your issue in your new kernel.

Yes boot is mounted and also did update the grub.cfg with
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


EDIT1: I deleted all kernels in /boot and did
Code:
make install
and updated my grub so maybe I could get my new kernel, but it seems it is the old kernel. What gives?

EDIT2: I did make distclean and just started from scratch and it solved my problem. Thanks for the help anyways :oops:
