I see you posted to do the following:
But where do I put this? Do I add it to a file, or do it in the terminal?
I could use a few noob steps to installing this driver.
Thanks in advance!
Ok, as Norm said, download the driver from www.alsa-project.org
It would probably be better to unzip the file with an unzip program. Just go to the location where you downloaded the file (either in your Desktop, or your home folder.) Right click on it as you would in windows, and click unzip.
Now, open up a terminal window.
First you have to go into the folder, aka directory, that the downloaded driver is in.
To do this, type:
cd stands for change directories. Substitute bob for wherever you downloaded the driver to. Depending on where, you might only have to have
now, "login" as root;
(type whatever your password is here)
now, type the ./configure stuff mentioned before
If all goes well, it should complete without any errors.
You will have to repeat this step for the alsa-lib and alsa-utils files from the alsa site. Make sure they are the same version as your driver.
