ALSA sound drivers don't install


Hi

I have an integrated soundcard (AD1980 chipset) that I have tried to get working, without much luck. My latest stop was the ALSA webpage from where I downloaded the most recent drivers+lib+utils and tried to compile/install. The process seemed to go through without any major hiccups but then modprobe returned errors and so did alsamixer when I tried to start it. Upon looking into dev, I didn't find midi and sequencer. What might be wrong? I am attaching the rather long conversation dump from the compile/install process in case it might be of any help?

Thanks for the support.

Hello from Santiago de Chile (spanish user)

I resolve this problem in my RedHat 9 : (NOTE : Always i have installed the kernel sources)

Note: First you must check if your soundcard is supported by the ALSA project.

Step 1.
- First download alsa sources from http://www.alsa-project.org (alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-utils, alsa-oss)

Step 2.
- unpack alsa-lib and compile. (./configure && make && make install)
- Compile alsa-oss (./configure && make && make install)

Step 3.
- Unpack alsa-driver
- ./configure --with-isapnp=no --with-sequencer=yes --with-oss=yes
- touch include/linux/workqueue.h
- make install
- run the ./snddevices script

Step 4.
-- Check if you have unresolved simbols with depmod -ae. If you get errors repeat step 3.

Step 5
-- run ldconfig

Step 6.
- unpack alsa-utils and compile. (./configure && make && make install)

Step 7
- run alsaconf ( here this must be configure your modules.conf )
- run alsamixer ( your channels are muted by default )
- run alsactl store

Step 8
- reboot
- cd /etc/init.d/alsasound start
- startx

Here my ALSA configuration in modules.conf

alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-intel8x0 snd_ac97_clock=0 snd_enable=1 snd_index=0

Enjoy!

Cheers!

Bye!
