Hi Tobin,

I unpacked the archive and typed make.  It created 4 RPMs.
Two of them installed, alsa-lib and alsa-lib-devel.  When I run a test
on the drivers rpm, there are conflicts with the kernel headers already
on the box.  And I have no sound now, except in the audio configuration
screen which is using the 14.rc3 packages.  The packages are named with
rh7 instead of fc7 as well.

Do I have to run make install to get everything working, or is the
header incompatability in the drivers a show stopper?
