ALSA driver with improved support for Conexant chipsets

We provide a version of the alsa-driver package (from the ALSA project) with improved support for Conexant chipsets and the HSF driver.

Generic packages with source

Before installing this package, make sure that you have the gcc and make packages installed. Additionally, the kernel headers are also needed, this is the linux-headers package in recent Debian and Ubuntu releases, kernel-devel in Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, kernel-source in Mandriva (Mandriva 2009 Spring requires kernel-devel instead) and kernel-source in SuSE.

Installing this package can take a significant amout of time, from 5 to 15 minutes depending on the machine used. If you are using a graphical package management program, it is possible that the progress bar will remain stuck at a low percentage while installing because of that, simply let it run.

If installing extra packages or wait several minutes to install is not desirable, using a pre-compiled package is possible.

Format Filename
(use on RPM-based systems)
(use on Debian-based systems like Ubuntu)
Source RPM
(could be useful for advanced users)
Patch alsa-driver-1.0.15-1.patch
(should be used on the original original alsa-driver packages. This is for systems without RPM or DEB support)

If you did manually install alsa-driver with the patch above, a reboot of the machine will also be required before installing the HSF driver.

Distribution-specific binary packages

If your distribution/architecture is not listed, or you are using a special enterprise/secure/SMP or custom (self-compiled) kernel, or the package does not work with your kernel version, you should try one of the generic packages with source above instead.
