jamesbond,
Of the many Puppy projects I have taken on, compiling a new ALSA version for the current Puppy (2.16) is not on my list, especially since 2.17 is not far from release.
Puppy 2.17 will have the latest ALSA, so it's probably worth waiting for this.
But if you're keen to have a recent ALSA in Puppy 2.15 or 2.16, I suggest you download the devx compiler addon, and compile ALSA yourself. I can talk you through the configuration process if you like.

I have systems with the CS5535 and CS5536 audio chips. On the ALSA site I see fixes for these chips on 1.0.11 thru 1.0.16rc2.
On my systems when I run ALSA it say already running, finds correct CS5535 and then when it puts out test WOOF WOOF no sound. If I move volume or mixer PCM or volume I can get a click or pop but no other sounds. These systems have CE or XPE built in and sound works for those programs so I guess hardware ok.
So does puppy need a update on ALSA to get these chips to work and how would that be done? I see on this section of forum updates have been done.
I need help.

edit
I see on forum that PUP 2.17 should have ALSA 1.0.14 and thats what I use, with no sound for CS5535 chips, maybe they need newer 1.0.16rc2?

That was quite a long time ago when I did this.
If I recall correctly, what I did was simply to download the latest alsa drivers from their website here, compile them (the usual ./configure followed by make), and install them (make install). Then I'd reboot.

It worked immediately for me. All you need is devx for the version of puppy you're using.

I am a hardware person not software, last software I worked with was 6502 on an ATARI.

Thanks for help but I would need a software person to do this?
I use Puppy 2.17 because some of these systems have only 128meg ram and 2.17 for the most part works fine in little ram.

I just found out how to get into ADMIN on these systems so I can install, uninstall, save ect. I am going to go with what I can get to work, CE and XPe. The S90 and S90L with XPe now works great with great sound and speed in stand alone mode instead of having to work with a server.


Thanks to all for trying to help.

Thank you so much, tempestuous, for putting together those .pets for alsa. I have enjoyed using the smp kernel which jcoder offered us. It makes compiz much more smooth. However, I couldn't get sound working when I was using it.

This is the method that worked for me: I created a new puppy using puppy-unleashed and exempted the two alsa sound items. Then I simply used the alsa-lib and alsa-util dot pets which you provided.

Finally, from the command line, I had to run "alsawizard," and then "alsamixer." The leftmost column in alsamixer is important (I'm talking to you newbies) - that's the main volume, and you can adjust it with the up and down arrow keys. By default the volume is turned down to nothing when you first install alsa sound using these .pet packages. So you won't hear the usual bark when you are finished with alsawizard.
