alsa 1.0.6, what do I need?


I have Mandrake 10.1 Community, which comes with Alsa 1.0.6, but unfortunately without the emu10k1x module compiled in, and that's the one that I need for my Dell soundcard. So I wonder, do I only have to compile and install alsa-driver, or do I also need all the others, like alsa-lib, alsa-utils and alsa-oss-whatever? I guess most of it should already be in place, but who knows.
The reason why I'm asking is that I didn't manage to compile alsa-lib. there was a complaint about "/lib/cpp failed sanity check" or something like that. This was late last night and I'm at work now, so I don't remember everything exactly. I might post more details tonight.

Best regards,
Hans Petter

Yeah you definetily need alsa-lib, and when you're finished reboot and see if alsa is started automatically, if not, add it to your default init level (I'm not sure how to do this on Mandrake), and remember to unmute and turn up the volume, you can run 'alsamixer' to set volume and unmute it ..

Hello from Santiago de Chile (spanish user)

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

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

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.
- Download the xmms sources from http://www.xmms.org
- Unpack the .tar file.
- ** This source have a alsa module source.
- ./configure && make && make install

Step 8
- reboot
- cd /etc/init.d/alsasound start
- startx
- run xmms
- If all was OK. Choice the alsa plugin.

- Enjoy!

NOTE : IF AFTER THIS LITTLE GUIDE IS NOT RESOLVE YOUR PROBLEM YOU MUST TRY THIS TOO.

Step 1
- Get mpg123 sources from http://www.mpg123.de/. You must get the last mpg123 sources (VERY IMPORTANT)
- Unpack the mpg123 sources
- ./configure && make && make install

Step 2
- Get GQMPEG sources from http://gqmpeg.sourceforge.net
- ./configure && make && make install

Step 3
- startx
- If you have KDE ALT-F2 and type gqmpeg
- If all was okey enjoy yours mp3s files.

HISTORY NOTE: THIS PROBLEM TAKE ME 4 DAYS TO RESOLVE.

If you beliave this guide was util please send me a email to leo.nunez@gmail.com

Cheers !

Bye!

Well, this is my problem. ./configure does not finish right for alsa-lib. You have no solution for that.

Hello again from me beatiful country! (spanish user)

1.- Have you must installed the development tools ? (gcc, nasm, gtk, glib, perl, etc)

2.- It's your sound card supported by the ALSA Project ?

3.- If you compile another source file give the same error ?

PD: I have installed RedHat Linux 9 in "Workstation mode" and this install all the "development" tools i need. I have the kernel sources installed too.

May be this can help you!

Cheers!

Bye!

Thanks for your effort, vbsoftware, but I have managed with other help. I needed the package gcc-c++. I got it yesterday and now I'm ok. Just need to find some time to finish.


Bye,
Hans Petter
