install Advanced Linux Sound Architecture - Driver ( ALSA )


Hi,
I would like to install Advanced Linux Sound Architecture - Driver ( ALSA ), but the installation guide using a lot of technical literateur- not easily understands by newbies. I can't understand what to do after running make install, ie the following steps.
--------------------
6) Run the './snddevices' script to create new sound devices in /dev directory.
Skip this step, if you have a kernel with the DEVFS support.
7) Edit your /etc/modules.conf (see the kmod support section below).
8) Run 'modprobe snd-xxxx' where xxxx is the name of your card.
Note: All ALSA ISA drivers support ISA PnP natively, so you don't need
isapnptools any more. Don't use both together. It will
conflict. For disabling the ALSA ISA PnP support, specify
--with-isapnp=no configure switch.
---------------------------------------

My sound card details are given below ( from sound car detecion),

Vendor: nVidia Corporation
Model : nForce Audio
Module: i810_audio

and the /sbin/lspci gives

00:05.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01b0 (rev c2)
00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce Audio (rev c2)

My OS is Fedora Core1
Thanking You,
Ras

Yes. Above I posted the instructions from Install file ( ALSA ), but I can't understand those steps.

Can you tell me the exact command to run?, My mother board is ASUS A7266VM, and I didn't download any driver for it.

Thanks
Ras

go to Asus.com....find the alsa drivers for your motherboard.....follow the instructions that come along with it....make sure u have the kernal-source installed on your computer....do the ./configure command just as ut says in the instructions....then do make install....think u can leave out the ./sndconfigure....try it if it stll doesn't work ...do the sndconfigure line... u still didn't tell me what distro ur using...

good luck
Tom

You'll need to recompile the kernel to get ALSA working. Enable sound support but nothing else on the sound menu (say no to everything else) then follow these instructions http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...odule=intel8x0

I serached www.asus.com for the linux drivers for my motherboard but not found there, and find drivers in www.nvidia.com.
If installed the these drivers, then any need of ALSA ?.

Nvidia do graphics cards. ALSA do the sound. You need to tell the ALSA drivers to build the drivers for intel8x0
