Re: ALSA & missing symbols
I'm running ALSA with 2.2.18-pre21, so I'm also curious to know what the
problems are with this kernel (that's directed at the poster who said there
A few weeks ago I posted my experiences getting ALSA running--it was a bit
of an adventure. When I checked there were no packages you could just
download and install to get ALSA running: all the prebuilt ones were for
very old versions of of the kernel.
I think the issue is that for ALSA to work certain drivers need to be off
(or at least not compiled into the kernel), and these are in the stock
debian kernels. At any rate, I had to drop back to rebuild the kernel from
source and then build the alsa modules. There is supposed to be a way to
build the modules and the kernel in one go, but I always had to build the
new kernel, start it, and then build the modules. I think I was getting
the modules linked against the old kernel otherwise.
Probably there are slicker ways of doing it!

on my system?
