ALSA problem

I'm running Slack 9.0 kernel 2.4.21 with Dropline Gnome and I tried to use ALSA for my sound I've download alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-utils, alsa-oss, alsa-tools from alsa site.
alsa-lib-0.9.7 were already installed by I don't have recompiled it!
I've compiled alsa-driver with options: --with-sequencer=yes --with-oss=yes then
cp alsasound /usr/local/bin
alsasound start

and all seems to work 'cause at restarting sound works, and lsmod shows
snd-pcm-oss 39364 1 (autoclean)
snd-mixer-oss 13720 1 (autoclean) [snd-pcm-oss]
radeon 102504 1
parport_pc 15972 1 (autoclean)
lp 6944 0 (autoclean)
parport 25600 1 (autoclean) [parport_pc lp]
i810-tco 3248 0 (unused)
snd-intel8x0 19460 2
snd-pcm 61536 0 [snd-pcm-oss snd-intel8x0]
snd-timer 14628 0 [snd-pcm]
snd-ac97-codec 42456 0 [snd-intel8x0]
snd-page-alloc 6484 0 [snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm]
snd-mpu401-uart 3456 0 [snd-intel8x0]
snd-rawmidi 13536 0 [snd-mpu401-uart]
snd-seq-device 4288 0 [snd-rawmidi]
snd 29924 0 [snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm snd-timer snd-ac97-codec snd-mpu401-uart snd-rawmidi snd-seq-device]

...well, compling alsa-utils, alsa-oss I recive the error:

checking for libasound headers version >= 0.9.0... not present.
configure: error: Sufficiently new version of libasound not found.

Compiling alsa-lib I recive a parse error...

The sound works!!!

My question is why I got this errors?
Is there something wrong??

Instead of installing everything from source, use a slackpack -- they're compiled, configed, and ready to rock. The alsa packages can be found here:

Download them, and as root run 'installpkg blah.tgz'

Hope that works
