ALSA Upgrade


Hi Guys. I really need some help and tips to upgrade ALSA. What do you suggest me to upgrade it? I'm using Slack 10 and currently there is no sound. I was reading from a guy that had the same problem on the same laptop, he said:

Quote:
This turned out to be a bug in the atiixp ALSA driver included with the 2.6.7 kernel sources. I installed CVS versions of ALSA, followed the build and install directions, and now sound works. This doesn't work with the 2.6.7 ALSA kernel modules, but does with those in the ALSA CVS sources. At this time the released version of ALSA is 1.0.5a; the problem should be fixed in the 1.0.6 release.
How can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

In a simple way, try to upgrade to 1.0.7 alsa packages from slackware-current, then download
the 1.0.7 alsa-driver at http://www.alsa-project.org, compile and install it

Do you mean that I need to compile and install all these packages?

http://slackware.com/pb/searchpkg.ph...nt&string=alsa

and then download this one ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/drive...-1.0.7.tar.bz2

Thanks again

You install the packages from slackware current, as they are pre-compiled packages, no need
to compile them again, but to make sure alsa-driver will be compatible with your kernel version,
download the sources, make sure /usr/src/linux points to your kernel source dir and compile
the alsa-driver package (downloaded from ALSA site) and install it.

I installed all the ALSA packages from slackware-current and I downloaded the new alsa-driver from www.alsa-project.org, but now I have all of these:

root@r0oT:/home/user# ls /var/log/packages | grep alsa
alsa-driver-1.0.5a-i486-2
alsa-driver-1.0.6a_2.4.27-i486-1
alsa-lib-1.0.5-i486-1
alsa-lib-1.0.6-i486-1
alsa-oss-1.0.5-i486-1
alsa-oss-1.0.6-i486-1
alsa-utils-1.0.5-i486-1
alsa-utils-1.0.6-i486-1

What should I need to do with the old ones?
