Hi all,

I've just received and installed SuSE 9.1. One of the problems that I have is
with my soundblaster live value card. I know that it has been the topic of
discussion on this list but in attempting to resolve it I discovered
something interesting.

When I modprobe for snd-emu10k1 I get the following error message:

FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default/modules.dep: No such file
or directory

However, having installed locate, run updatedb and queried for emu10k1, I get
the following result:

/lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1-synth.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.ko

depmod also fails for the same reason:

WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default: No such file
or directory
FATAL: Could not open /lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default/modules.dep.temp for
writing: No such file or directory

How do I fix it so that the system looks in:
/lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default
instead of:
/lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default/

I'm assuming that there must be a config file somewhere that can be edited or
a script that be run to correct it.

Thanks in advance.

Eddie
