Sound in Linux Debian 3.0 (WOODY) + Realtek ALC650 + problem with ALSA driver - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hello Has anyone tried to setup soundcard AC97 (integrated on motherboard), chipset Realtek ALC650 on Linux Debian 3.0 (WOODY)? There is ALSA-based driver available at Realtek's website ([url]http://www.realtek.com.tw/[/url]), but it seems not to work properly on Debian. When I run 'configure' script it says that version.h cannot be found, and then to specify another location for kernel source. I googled Internet for solutions, but found nothing. Thanks in advance for any help Micha³...

    As a first step, I'd look into ALSA based solutions before I'd get a
    vendor specific source. It doesn't seem too unlikely that the realtek
    driver is just an old version of the kernel or alsa driver, not improving
    anything.

    Then, for alsa or a kernel-based driver to install, you'd to install the
    kernel sources first (thus, that is why it is asking for a missing version.h).

    So long

    Did you install the kernel source package? Did you unpack the archive in
    /usr/src? Do you need to make a link /usr/src/linux pointing to the
    source directory?

    If you use the kernel source package, you probably have to copy the kernel
    config from boot to /usr/src/kernel-source-$version/.config and make dep
    clean.

    Maybe you can install and use the kernel headers for your image instead of
    the source package (e.g. apt-get install kernel-headers-2.4.18-bf2.4 if
    you use the 2.4 installation kernel). Make a link /usr/src/linux =>
    /usr/src/kernel-headers-$version and see if it works.

    Would the config from the /boot compile ok with the newer 2.4.21 kernel? Id
    like to compile a .21 kernel with all the same options as the debian package
    2.4.x with all the drivers. So do i just need to copy it into the source and
    make it all?

    Thanks

    Copy the config file to /usr/src/linux/.config. There is a option
    make oldconfig
    for this. Seems to be working for most people, however I never tried my
    self.

    That sounds to me as if the modules were not compiled. Did you do "make"
    between "./configure" and "make install"?

    Well, no... but there was nothing about it in provided manual...
    But if you say so, I'll do it and report any changes.

    Best regards.
