If anyone has some fluency with ALSA stuff, you'd be my hero if you can help out with this...
I'm running Fedora Core 3 and the audio card I'm trying to use is a Gina20 made by Echo Corporation.
here are some links about that card in particular:
As far as I know, this drive is included in the current ALSA drivers packages. Additionally, ALSA is included in the Fedora Core 3 install, but it did not 'see' any soundcards.
I reinstalled the ALSA packages in /src/asla-*
for drivers, lib, and util. I got through page 6 of the ALSA HOWTO : http://www.alsa-project.org/~valenty...i-HOWTO-6.html
and I'm stuck.
[root@localhost zyn]# cat /proc/asound/cards
--- no soundcards ---
The OS apparently sees the card when I boot since lspci turns up the device (MOTOROLA DSP *chipset number* ) and the ALSA module for this card is loaded. I don't really have any idea what to try or what is wrong.
