Alsa sound drive for E-machine

Alsa sound drive for E-machine

Post by Wei Ya » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00


I have a E-machine (e-tower 500is) which has a built-in
Crystal Sound Fusion CD4280 card. I am running RD 6.2 on
it and I copied and installed ALSA sound drive v0.5.8.
But I could not get it work. Is there anybody having the
same machine and can hear anything from it? Please give
me some hint, especially /etc/conf.modules. Thanks,

1. ALSA sound source won't compile on PPC machine.

Hi All,

Has anyone managed to get ALSA sound drivers compiled/installed on a PPC
platform with the latest code.
(version 0.9.0-pre3)

I have the following error when compiling the driver module


make[1]: Entering directory

Appreciate any help.
