PostPosted: Sun 24 Jan 2010, 14:48    Post_subject:  Alsa 1.0.22.1 Driver Updates  

Hmmm .....

Here are Alsa 1.0.22.1 driver binary updates which could be useful to some of you.
Please note that this is a once in a blue moon effort and probably will not be maintained.

I've provided a 3-in-1 binary set in .pet form for kernel 2.6.21.7, kernel 2.6.25.16 and kernel 2.6.30.5 ...
Suitable for those who only wanted the actual binaries without any dev headers etc etc ...
They contain only the binaries required from alsa-drivers, alsa-lib and alsa-utils packages.
Except for alsaconf script which is modified for puppy use, the rest are as per original source upstream.
For full alsa upgrade (static libs, headers, etc), the tarballs are provided.

Please note:
1. Only the drivers are kernel version specific.
2. alsa drivers kernel 2.6.21.7 is for only puppy 4.10 and above


How to use ?

For Puppy 4.1.x or Puppy 4.3.x :

1. Install the appropriate alsa 3-in-1 pet as per your kernel version.

2. Run Alsa sound wizard.

3. Open a terminal and run 'amixer controls' or 'alsamixer'

4. If there's no error, you're probably good to go ...

5. Restart X to get absvolume pick up new mixer config.


For Puppy 4.2.x :

1. Install the appropriate alsa 3-in-1 pet as per your kernel version.

2. Exit to prompt.

3. Run '/etc/rc.d/rc.alsa stop' - This is a required step to unload all drivers.

4. Now, you can restart X by typing 'xwin'

5. Run Alsa sound wizard.

5. Open a terminal and run 'amixer controls'

6. If there's no error, you're probably good to go ...

7. Restart X to get absvolume pick up new mixer config.

Thanks! this saved my bacon... I have revived an old vaio... Alsa seemed to detect the chip, but would not use it (puppy 4.3.1) when I installed this, it started working (got the woof-woof)!

I had tried Lupu, but it won't boot on the vaio...

Thanks again for this and for bumping it up!

Some of the links are not working anymore. Anyone knows where I can get alsa firmware 1.0.22 or maybe 1.0.23 as .pet? Smile

Ditto on the dead links. Does anyone have copies that can be re-upped? I need the 2.6.25.16 version at the moment.

Alternatively advice on creating your own pet package from the latest ALSA sources would be appreciated - I've been trying to compile ALSA 1.0.24 and while it compiles and installs the installation itself is broken in some way (alsamixer and aplay -l both show no sound cards). It seems Patriot was going through some extra steps to tailor the ALSA builds for Puppy and I'm not sure what he was doing.

Patriot's older 1.0.20 pet does work for me with the same hardware.
