SoundBlaster Live! module in 2.3.x kernels does not work

Hi guys,

I'm using happily emu10k1 driver with 2.2.13 kernel not meeting
any problems. To have my ATI Rage 128 graphic supported I changed
for 2.3.29 kernel (new framebuffer). I tried binary module from
Creative web and then I compiled the newer one from the sources
got from that web too. Both modules when loaded
by "insmod emu10k1 -f" produce following error messages:

/lib/modules/2.3.29/misc/emu10k1.o: unresolved symbol request_region
/lib/modules/2.3.29/misc/emu10k1.o: unresolved symbol release_region
/lib/modules/2.3.29/misc/emu10k1.o: unresolved symbol __get_free_pages
/lib/modules/2.3.29/misc/emu10k1.o: unresolved symbol free_pages
/lib/modules/2.3.29/misc/emu10k1.o: unresolved symbol check_region

I tried to grep kernel sources but haven't a clue about
the solution. Everything goes well on 2.2.13, anyway.
I could live with aty128fv patch for 2.2.x too :-)))
I simply want to have sound and good refresh at the same time...

Thanks for your tips,

Ferda Prantl
