problems compiling alsa 1.0.3
What I am trying to do is to get sound from my CD-RW.
I have system sounds just fine but nothing from playing CD's

I am running mandrake 9.2
The sound card is a Soundblaster PCI64 and is supposed to use the driver sns-ES1371

I have it set to this but still nothing. I checked the version of the alsa driver and it was version 0.9.2, so, I thought that an upgrade may do the trick.

I first compiled the Library and then the Firmware, didn't seem to have any problems. Next I tried to compile the Driver and it said that it could not find version.h

Is there something I need to uncomment ?.........

Like I said, I have version 0.9.2 so it should find the header files, shouldn't it?

Thanks for any and all help!

ok, I did find this at The Linux Documentation Project :


If this tells you that something like ``version.h'' cannot be found, then you probably do not have a proper kernel source tree. You need a couple of files of your kernel source to be able to compile the ALSA-drivers. Unpack your favorite linux-2.x.y.tar.gz in /usr/src, and issue a make menuconfig. (Actually, make symlinks may be enough). Now compile the libraries:
Is that saying to unpack the kernel to /usr/src? I really don't want to have to compile my own kernel....Imma n00b :p :(
