ALSA after re-compiling kernel


Every time I re-compile the kernel, I need to re-install ALSA, which works beautifully. However, isn't there a way to avoid having to do this every time!?!

With the 2.6 series kernels the Alsa drivers are included in the kernel source tree so no, you don't have to.

But with Linux 2.4 and earlier the answer is yes - you need to build the Alsa drivers against the current kernel version and configuration. This is true for the 2.6 kernel too but in that case you would probably just use the in-kernel Alsa version.
