    Realtek AC'97 again!

    Hi again

    Still can't get the damn card working or is it cause I'm using the SPIDF output on the card. Another problem is that whenever I try the ALSA drivers they won't start as it says it can't install the AOSS package, what is it and where can I get it, if its at all possible.

    The source code copy from ver:A1.8
    Linux Source Code for ALC audio codec

    This Source Code is from
    For driver installation, please follow below steps.

    Step 1. Unzip source code
    tar xfvj alcsound.tar.bz2

    Step 2. Turn on sound support (soundcore module)

    Step 3. Complied source code
    a. ./Configure
    b. make install
    c. ./snddevices

    Step 4. Edit your /etc/modules.conf or conf.modules depending on the Distribution
    (Please refer to the attached modules.conf)

    Step 5. reboot your machine

    Note: 1. The most detail information, can refer the INSTALL file in the alcsound.tar.bz2.
    2. Kernel Version must be 2.2.14 or later.
    3. All mixer channels are muted by default. You must use a native
    or OSS mixer program to unmute appropriate channels.
    4. If can not compile the source code, try to rename the /usr/src/linux-2.x -> /usr/src/linux.
    5. The driver added to support the SPDIF functoin.
