Not stupid, just far from obvious. I didn't download anything. I have the
official binary CDs. Is there something in the source distribution that I
need and must download? I have alsa-modules, alsalib and alsautils
Personally, I'd imagine alsa-modules would have alsa modules in it, but then
again, I'm an idealist.

Understood. Hit the obvious first!
