Default Anyone with problems upgrading alsa driver on Hardy 2.6.24 kernel?

I'm having a problem with "make" complaining when trying to upgrade the alsa
driver on Hardy 8.04's 2.6.24 kernel, and make throws in the towel after only
a few lines of output.

I get the same problem on my Debian Etch install with a 2.6.24 etchnhalf
kernel.

On the face of it, it looks like a problem with 2.6.24 kernels, as on Dapper
with a 1.0.15 kernel, and alsa driver 1.0.10, where I had no sounds, I was
able to upgrade the alsa driver to 1.0.15, and then had sounds. On my Etch
install with a 2.6.18-6 kernel, with alsa driver 1.0.12rc1, no sounds, but
was able also to upgrade to the 1.0.15 alsa driver, and then the sounds
worked.

I've also just tried upgrading the alsa driver on my Ubuntu 8.10 install, with
a 2.6.27-7-generic kernel. No complaints from "make", and ran to completion.
I've havn't run "make install", as the sounds are working ok with the 1.0.17
alsa driver, and I'm sure that as "make" has run to completion, "make
install" will also run to completion, resulting in alsa driver 1.0.17 being
upgraded to 1.0.18a.

All the above is on the same machine. Asus M2N-X Plus mobo, with hda intel
"Azalia" soundcard, using a ALC662 codec.

The sounds are working on Hardy's 2.6.24 kernel, and since I commented out the
model option for the hda intel card on Etch, the sounds are working for the
2.6.24 etchnhalf kernel as well.

This is perhaps a bit academic as sounds are working, but I'm puzzled as to
why "make" is complaining on 2.6.24 kernels.

So if anyone has been able to upgrade the alsa driver on Hardy's 2.6.24
kernel, I'd be gratefull for any feedback.

I'll post the output from the "make" fails if required.

Thanks for any help.

Nigel.

This function in question was augmented into 2.6.25 by the looks of it.

For hardy, you will need to request it back-porting back into 2.6.24.

Hi Frans.

Yes, that's exactly the same "make" complaints as I have on the Hardy 2.6.24
kernel, and on the Debian Etch 2.6.24 etchnhalf kernel.

Thanks for your reply, which confirms the problem. this appears to be a
problem with the 2.6.24 kernel. Earlier, or later kernels seem to have no
problem in upgrading the alsa driver.

I think I will put the problem to the alsa devel list, and see if anyone has a
solution.

Thanks again for your reply.

Nigel.
