hello

I want to install a lynx one sound card with ubuntu 11.04 and ardour 2.8.x.
I am completely new to linux and have done so much fumbling i had to re-install os again! can somebody tell me or send a link as What the following instructions from open sound 4front tech means or what i should do to install their driver oss-linux 4.2-2005_i386.deb
:
warning Linux 2.6 kernel with kernel sources (or kernel headers), GCC Compiler, Binutils,
GNU Make, GTK/GLIB 2.0 libraries must be installed before you can install OSS. Please consult
your Linux distributorís manuals on how to install and prepare the kernel sources so that external
drivers and modules can be compiled for your kernel.

do i have to make adjustments to my operating system in order to install the correct driver

You probably won't have to install a special driver for the sound card. Just hook it up and see if it's recognized. If it isn't we'll go from there.

there is a warning from oss i would like to troubleshoot this first

Try installing this first:


sudo apt-get install build-essential

That should give you all the dependencies for building your own modules.

Download the driver package from here: http://www.4front-tech.com/release/oss-linux-4.2-2005_i386.deb

type sudo dpkg -i oss-linux-4.2-2005_i386.deb and then reboot the machine.

Don't worry OSS will not be shown under the soundcards in Ubuntu. = Ubuntu only displays ALSA supported devices.

You need to run ossinfo to get the information of the sound devices in your system. Test out the audio by running osstest command.

have installed the oss licensee!!!
now i have sound but only through the INTERNET and from my synthesizer keyboard which is connected to my sound-card(lynx one).

How do i activate my sound from system?..........................................( rhythmbox mp3 player)

I think i have to use jack 1 to use ardour which i have downloaded in a tar package(how do i install a tar package?)
