Hi Mark, I have stored a newer alsa version temporarily in the
planetedge sector of the Planet CCRMA web site. It is today's cvs and
did not have that little patch applied (I added it before compiling).
Obviously not tested except to say it loaded on one computer :-)

This is not yet in the apt repository. So go to:

in the i386 directory download the alsa-driver alsa-lib alsa-utils and
alsa-tools rpms version number "42". In the i686 directory download the
alsa-driver-2.4.19-1.ll version "42". 

"rpm -Uvh" them and restart the driver (/etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound

Who knows, it may work :-)
