I'm using the alsa-sound-driver, snd-sb16, with CMI8338 card
after loading the DOS driver and booting the Linux with Loadlin.exe.

Recently the vendor of CMI838 chip announced the driver for Linux.
I just download the driver 'cmpci-1.1.tar.gz' from
http://www.cmedia.com.tw/e_dload1.htm
but I can make the module for my CMI8338 soundcard since some of header
files which are needed in cmpci.c are missing.
There are no instructions about the version of kernel.
I have used RedHat-5.2 with kernel-2.0.36 and I am wondering whether
I upgrade my system to kernel-2.2.

Could you try the driver with RedHat 6.0 and report the result ?

Yes.   That's  encouraging news.   Yet,  the  driver  is by  no  means
complete.   For  example,  cat  /dev/sndstat  doesn't  work,  although
/dev/dsp, /dev/mixer and /dev/audio function properly.  I look forward
to the next version.

I  also want  to  complain  about this.   The  package should  contain
information on what kernel version that piece of code works.

I've compiled the module under kernel 2.2.5.  It works.

I'll try kernel 2.2.9 later.  I hope it will work.
