Not for the Musix kernel that I suggested he install to get the sounds working 
on Etch. The kernel headers are available for the Musix 2.6.26 realtime 
kernel, but no source.

Strangely the etchnhalf kernel which has alsa driver 1.0.15, produced no 
sounds, with a failure to create /dev/dsp message, although my Kubuntu Dapper 
install on the same machine, which at install was using alsa driver 1.0.10, 
which I then upgraded to alsa driver 1.0.15 from the alsa site, now does 
produce sounds. It doesn't make sense. Both alsa drivers are the same 
version, yet the one installed on Kubuntu Dapper has sounds working, but the 
on that comes with the etchnhalf kernel doesn't.

I'm not complaining, as I do have the Musix kernel installed, which has the 
sounds working (alsa driver 1.0.16), but it is a bit bizarre that Dapper has 
sound using the alsa driver 1.0.15, but etchnhalf, using the same alsa 
driver, does not have sound.
