You don't have to uninstall alsa lib to upgrade the alsa driver. First
reinstall the alsa-lib package, reboot, or restart alsa, and see if it's
Post the output of cat /proc/asound/version, which will verify if the alsa
driver is now the latest version (1.0.18a)
I also have an Archlinux install (Don't Panic). My hda intel card works ok
with the 1.0.17 alsa driver. (ALC662 codec).
All the best.
