Install VIA8233A in Debian, using ALSA
I use Debian 3.0 [Woody], the bf24 flavour.
I installed alsa-base, alsa-utils and alsaconf using dselect.
Then I installed alsa-modules-2.4.16-k7 (Because I have an Athlon XP). This required the installation
of kernel-image-2.4.16-k7, which uses initrd.
(I think I installed all these OK, because 'uname -r' gives me 2.4.16-k7 (It gave me '2.4.18-bf24' before)
Then I used alsaconf to configure my VIA8233A chipset. (It created the file /etc/alsa/modutils/0.5,
which I moved to 0.9, because my driver is 0.9beta12, but alsaconf is 0.4.3-b4) Then I unmuted most
of the channels with alsamixer and set the volume to ~half.
lsmod gives me:

echo-ing something (e.g. a .au file) to /dev/dsp doesn't seem to work, as I hear nothing and the
console is locked (until I press CTRL+C and get:
bash: /dev/dsp: Interrupted system call
Can anyone tell me what am I supposed to do in such case?
NOTE: Something else: doing
(or even force-stop or force-restart) gives me:
Storing ALSA mixer settings...done. Shutting down ALSA sound driver (version 0.9.0beta10): no. (sound is being used by pid 503 )
