trying to install sound drivers but getting errors


I am trying to install alsa drivers following these instructions http://www.alsa-project.org/main/ind...odule-virtuoso. when I get to make install I receive this error "install: cannot stat `include/sound/*.h': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-headers] Error 1" I am not sure whats going on but I am thinking it has something to do with headers lol. if it is the headers how do I install the linux header?

ok I realised that I needed to install the kernal header which I did. this made it so I could get past the driver install.
but now when I try to make ( alsa-utils-1.0.18rc3>) I am recieving xmlto man alsactl_init.xml
make[2]: xmlto: Command not found
make[2]: *** [alsactl_init.7] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/Shadowfire/Documents/Utilities/alsa-utils-1.0.18rc3/alsactl'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/Shadowfire/Documents/Utilities/alsa-utils-1.0.18rc3/alsactl'
errors

That means that you still don't have the driver required for your sound card to work.
The only thing I can suggest you is to remove the alsa packages you've installed from Suse and go with the howto from alsa.
If you have any problems compiling the driver, please post them here to see if we can help you further.

Regards
