Compiling Alsa
« on: August 13, 2010, 05:59:24 pm »
So, I've decided to compile alsa.
This to get my sound card working.

I first did ./configure --with-cards=maestro3 --with-sequencer=yes


Then I did make, then make install.


Make install gave this result:

rm -f /lib/modules/0.0.0/misc/snd*.*o /lib/modules/0.0.0/misc/persist.o /lib/modules/0.0.0/misc/isapnp.o
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/grim0x/Downloads/alsa-driver-1.0.9b/acore'
mkdir -p /lib/modules/0.0.0/misc
cp snd-hpet.o snd-page-alloc.o snd-pcm.o snd-timer.o snd.o /lib/modules/0.0.0/misc
cp: cannot stat `snd-hpet.o': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `snd-page-alloc.o': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `snd-pcm.o': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `snd-timer.o': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `snd.o': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [_modinst__] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/grim0x/Downloads/alsa-driver-1.0.9b/acore'
make: *** [install-modules] Error 1


Whats going on here?

Did you su to root before running make install? You need to as this stage of the process needs root permission to copy files to the system folders.

 I did a bit of googling and found exactly the same problem posted on an Ubuntu forum (http://www.ge.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1538544) so you are not alone - but unfortunately no solution was offered. As far as I know, stat errors indicate either permission problems or that the file can't be found. I presume there were no errors indicated during configure? Hopefully someone else will chime in here with some ideas.

Are you sure you want to compile an alsa that old (1.0.9b?). The current one is 1.0.23...
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
