This just an FYI
In Ubuntu 8.04, ubuntu has packaged alsa-drivers including some out of
tree drivers in a separate package: linux-ubuntu-modules-$kernelver
This gets installed in /lib/modules/$kernelver/ubuntu/sound
The only things installed in /lib/modules/$kernelver/sound are
soundcore.ko and ac97_bus.ko
However, when you do a default "make install" from alsa-driver source,
the modules get installed in /lib/modules/$kernelver/kernel/sound
So, now there are 2 copies of the drivers in different places.
I have taken to removing (moving away to say /root)
/lib/modules/$kernelver/ubuntu/sound to avoid any confusion and some odd
module versioning problems that I was having.
