ADI AD1988B under opensuse with alsa


Dear Community,
I am helping a friend set up the new computer I build for her. open Suse 10.1 is running. Currently I am struggling with the sound drivers. It is a ADI AD1988B Sound Chip, embedded on a Asus P5B Deluxe. I used the drivers that came with the Mainboard. First time I set everything up, it seemed to work fine during installation. However I heard no sample music at the end of the installation and when I opened alsamixer I received:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: no such device
So I decided to do the whole installation again. This time no sound devices were found during alsaconf. Here is what I entered and received.
Yast detects a HD audio device. When I try to install it via Yast, I am told snd-hda-intel is missing. Where do I find this?
Thank you for your Time,

According to the link you've posted, the driver was not built due to this error:
Quote:
/usr/src/linux-2.6.16.13-4/include/linux/pci.h:496: error: expected identifier or ( before numeric constant
make[4]: *** [/root/Desktop/alsa-driver-1.0.9b/acore/hpetimer.o] Error 1
That's why you don't have the snd_hda_intel module.
I suggest you to use yast to install the latest alsa packages (1.0.13) from Suse (or search here) and only if you cannot find them to d/l and install alsa from sources.

Thank you for your answer. I tried adding ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub to the Yast sources but that failed for a not given reason. Alternative mirrors gave me the same results. So I moved on to downloading alsa-1.0.13-0.pm.0.x86_64.rpm. When trying to install, it gave me allot of dependency issues. So I tied the alsa-1.0.13-0.pm.0.x86_64.rpm, although all the hardware is 64bit compatible. The gave me the following output:
Code:
<-replacepkgs  '///root/Desktop/alsa-1.0.13-0.pm.0.i586.rpm';echo RESULT=$?
warning: ///root/Desktop/alsa-1.0.13-0.pm.0.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5277a2fa
Updating etc/sysconfig/sound...
Updating etc/sysconfig/joystick...
RESULT=0
Symptoms are still the same.
Thank you again,

If you cannot install alsa from rpms, then go ahead and install it from source. D/l the driver, the library and the utils and the follow this guide. The only dependencies are the kernel headers, so you must have the kernel source installed before compiling alsa.

Great! It worked! That is until the system was rebooted.
