  1. disclaimer: these are raw notes i've gathered from other ppl who have installed alsa
  2. cvs; i have not done it myself;
  3. mercurial svn app is also called hg; mercurial app can be installed using your package manager
  4. automake package must be installed; remove alsa packages before installing hg
  5. automake package may need upgrading if you can not 'make install' alsa-lib
  6. automake must be upgraded if you get compile errors for alsa-lib or alsa-utils compile
  7. install kernel source and kernel headers for your kernel; uname -r for kernel version
  8. for ubuntu:  apt-get install build-essential     installs kernel sources
  9. for ubuntu: you may need to install libconfig
  10. ubuntu build alsa sources:
  11. sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r` libncurses5-dev automake autoconf
  12. use 'hg clone' command to download the alsa cvs source files
  13. at   at the hg repository link on this page;
  14.   ;read the entire page too
  15. use the "hg clone" command to download alsa-drivers, alsa-kernel, alsa-lib, alsa-utils
  16. hg clone alsa-driver
  17. hg clone alsa-lib
  18. hg clone alsa-utils
  19. alsa driver needs alsa kernel to compile: 'hg clone alsa-kernel'
  20. use ./hgcompile on all the alsa sources and not ./configure and make
  21. then as root: make install  after the ./hgcompile on each sources = alsa drivers,lib and utils
  22. hg info:
  23. all sound apps should already be closed then restart alsa or reboot
  24. gentoo: /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
  25. ubuntu restart alsa: reboot
  26. cat /process/asound/version  #if the version is not the new version installed then
  27. cat /proc/asound/modules   #make a note of which snd- module you use then
  28. modprobe -r $(lsmod |grep ^snd |awk '{print $1}')  # to remove all sound modules then
  29. modprobe {which snd- module you use}; cat /process/asound/version  # to see if new version now
  30. next, as root: alsamixer -V all
  31. unmute and set volumes on all needed controls in alsamixer
  32. close alsamixer and as root: alsactl store    #this command stores the current alsamixer settings
  33. as root: speaker-test    #should hear pink noise in left/right front speakers
