Question Trouble installing ALSA driver

Im trying to install realtek high definition audio driver but have some problems and the sound is completely gone now.Commands I run:

cd /home/marcell/Downloads
tar jxpvf LinuxPkg_5.18rc8.tar.bz2
cd /home/marcell/Downloads/Rt-Linux-HDaudio-5.18
tar jxpvf alsa-driver-RTv5.18rc8.tar.bz2
cd /home/marcell/Downloads/Rt-Linux-HDaudio-5.18/alsa-driver-RTv5.18/alsa
make install
then i get this error after 'make':

/home/marcell/Downloads/Rt-Linux-HDaudio-5.18/alsa-driver-RTv5.18/alsa/usb/misc/ua101.c: In function ‘ua101_disconnect’:
/home/marcell/Downloads/Rt-Linux-HDaudio-5.18/alsa-driver-RTv5.18/alsa/usb/misc/ua101.c:1357:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘__list_for_each’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
  __list_for_each(midi, &ua->midi_list)

cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-24-generic'
make: *** [compile] Error 2
i tried uninstalling and then reinstalling libasound but that didnt help either. Amixer does not recognize any sound cards but the inxi -Ax script returned the following:

Card-1: Intel 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio bus-ID: 00:1b.0
Card-2: NVIDIA GF106 High Definition Audio Controller bus-ID: 02:00.1

Initially I had sound set to default (pulseaudio) and things went mute after I tried to configure realtek. Maybe it realy is just a compiler error and not something else, then it could easily be solved by correcting a few syntax errors, heres a link to the file:

or download the whole package:

Thanks for any help and sorry for long post!

Are you sure that this device is not already supported by the existing snd-hda-intel driver?
/sbin/lspci -nnk|grep Audio -A3
Have you checked your sound config file? Which distro?
