RPM & Kernel Sound

Thanks for everybody's help. More questions, though!

1. I've had a bit of a battle getting RPM working, but after going through
the RPM-hint, I seem to have successfully compiled it. I can run
rpm --version and get the output. But when I try and use it for the packages
I installed it for, I get the following:

rpm -recompile I810Gtt-0.2-4.src.rpm

Installing I810Gtt-0.2-4.src.rpm
Unable to open temp file

Which temp file? Does anybody know?
The other one is...

rpm -Uvh XFCom_i810-1.2-3

error: failed dependencies:
 ld-linux.so.2 is needed by XFCom_i810-1.2-3
 libc.so.6 is needed by XFCom_i810-1.2-3
 libdl.so.2 is needed by XFCom_i810-1.2-3

 libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by XFCom_i810-1.2-3

These seem to be in /usr/lib and /lib, but boht are in $PATH.

2. When the kernel loads, I get the following... (as well as a load of other
messages, of course)

Three questions:

a. It says it's detected the mouse port, but the mouse doesn't seem to have
any effect out of X. For example, when the power saving/screensaver black
screen pops up, I used to be able to get rid of it by moving the mouse. Now,
I have to use the keyboard. Is it a problem?

b. (MAIN QUESTION!) The lines starting from 'Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version
0.17, 22:27:13 Nov  5 2000': should I be worried about all the 'failed'
lines? I was so pleased when I saw the option in menuconfig because this is
exactly the sound driver I need. But I'm not sure it's working. I heard a
reassuring click from my speakers when the kernel loaded up this evening,
but I don't really know how to test it & these messages look ominous! I
tried downloading and installing mpg123 to try it out, but didn't really get
anywhere once the program was compiled.

c. Does everybody get an 'unknown IDE controller'? What is it? :]

I'd appreciate any help in these - especially concerning rpm, as the
packages are the only way I can get more than 640x480 on X.

Many thanks,
Tom Cashman
