Could you please check this how-to?

Sorry for the delay in following this up.
I have run through your alsa how-to page and was unsuccessful.
I have attached an output file which indicates some problem encountered during
the 'make' command.
When I now run system-config-soundcard the details show the same vendor, model
and driver but there is no Default PCM Device....

I have since updated my kernel to 2.6.17-1.2145_FC5-i686 and updated all the
alsa packages to the latest stable versions found by yum (1.0.11rc4) and now get
the following error in make...

I am not sure what else to do - are there missing libraries/packages needed for
configure/make to compile a module for this kernel?

Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2006-08-04 20:15:19 UTC
okay, I updated my ALSA page so could you please check the latest ALSA driver
package from my site? (http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/, package
alsa-driver-1.0.12rc1)

Thanks Martin! That new alsa tar ball compiled a treat and worked first time!
