im using tarballs from the alsa-project site... hope to move on to CVS
once the recording problems with usb are solved...

ok... i've removed the modules manually from the place you suggested...

yes, there's make uninstall and make clean :)

ok have done... it seems i have a later version of libs-devel but thats
okay i assume....

okay.... i have done so and it seems to be working... yes!!!!
this seems to suggest that the devfs stuff which i got from mr. d r
holsbeck worked great :) (it was his solution for his debian system,
pasted into my modules.conf)...

turns out it doesnt matter as long as i reinstall alsa from tarball and
then *dont* do ./snddevices.... the earlier run of it doesnt seem to
have affected things negatively.....

| card-0, is this not all of your modules.conf??

oops. i think i mean card 0 in that comment rather than card 1!!!

thanks HEAPS for your help!
now i can enjoy watching the DVD i bought of The Matrix... uhhhh and do
some music work too ;-)
