===== Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) diagnostics =====

The ALSA packages provide audio support and also drivers for some modems.

ALSA diagnostics are written during bootup to /proc/asound/ folders.

The ALSA verion is 1.0.16

The modem cards detected by "aplay -l"* are: None

The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:

*The audio card hosts a softmodem

*14f1 is the Conexant Vendor ID, and
0x14f12c06 a softmodem chipset.

*Get a hsfmodem package through

If not a Conexant modem, the driver hsfmodem-drivers with its dependent


provide audio + modem support with the modem chip residing on the subsystem.

Any particular card can host any one of several soft modem chips.

*Minimal compiling resources appear

*For martian_modem, additional required
packages are needed. The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly
installed by default.

linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later

*In not included on your install CD,
search for them at http://packages.ubuntu.com

*or comparable Repository for other Linux

*When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility
"patch" will also be needed.

If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some
FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then

Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The
minimal additional packages are libc6-dev

and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,

$* apt-get update

$* apt-get -s install

will install needed packages.

For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display
the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com

Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,

they can be installed alltogether with:

$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem,


To enable dialout without Root permission do:

***** $ su - root* (not for Ubuntu)

******* sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

or under Ubuntu related Linuxes

***** sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
