Kernel before ALSA?
Hi, i've got Debian 3.0 woody on the 2.2.20 kernel installed recently. Noticed my sound card (Createive labs audigy series - S0 maybe?) isn't working. I looked around a bit, and found that ALSA looks promising to provide the needed modules and drivers. Their FAQ says that the 2.4 kernel is needed. I'm a big time newbie and am probably not up to upgrading my kernel yet.
Is there an easier way to get my sound card working? Or should I start reading about how to upgrade my kernel? Anyone have any suggested articles for me to read about it?
Thank you muchly!
