I found this url but no libasoud there

HI Hakan,

thanks for the url.

I had already found it.

The point is that the libasound librairies
required by ALSA are missing.

And I found them nowhere...

There's a link on the frontpage - "Library". You can find the latest version and archived versions on the project's FTP server: ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/lib/

Beware that you will most probably need to build alsa-driver from scratch before attempting to build alsa-lib (aka libasound).

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!
