ALSA Driver Recompile Problem + SB Audigy SE


I'm trying to get the ca0106 driver compiled, however when I try to compile alsa-source:

Code:
checking for built-in ALSA... "yes"
configure: error: You have built-in ALSA in your kernel.
And the build fails. How can I remove my previous alsa driver in Debian to recompile the new one? I don't want to recompile the whole kernel.

EDIT: The problem above solved, now I have a new one after having succesfully compiled the module and ran alsaconf:

wookie:/home/jaakko# alsactl restore
alsactl: load_state:1267: No soundcards found...

I used to have Realtek AC'97 soundcard, could the old drivers be in the way?

lsmod | grep snd:

Try /etc/init.d/alsa reload to restart alsa with the new settings. Did you disable the on-board sound card in your BIOS? You may also want to look into the /etc/modprobe.d/sound file and see how it listed the card after the alsaconf it may have it second after the original card if so change it so that it is snd-card-0 then reload and use the alsamixer to raise/unmute the volumes on PCM and Master channels.

oh boy what a mess
you should remove all sound drivers because they are all wrong.
modprobe -r
peruse man pages
BTW I hope you did not use OSS too.
AND check here
and check out the comments for you driver.
PS If you don't want to do this reinstall.

The .../alsa reload command will remove the modules then it loads them again.
