ALSA and ThinkPad 560
I replaced the commercial OSS drivers in my desktop machine with the ALSA
drivers, and it works great. The reason I could not get it to work in the
past was that I did not know I had to download the drivers from the ALSA
website, and I thought the Debian ALSA packages were sufficient.
Now I want to try installing the ALSA drivers to my ThinkPad 560 also, and
I know that my ThinkPad uses the ESS Autodrive drivers in Windows. Does
anyone know how to get ALSA to work on a ThinkPad? I have tried to
configure ALSA for ESS Autodrive and alsaconf just aborts.
Maybe I need to use a different driver, not ESS Autodrive. My desktop has
a VibraX card but I had to configure ALSA for SB16 PnP to get it to work,
so perhaps a different driver is needed on the ThinkPad also.
