$SUBJECT is now on my sound-unstable git tree:
together with other experimental patches.
If you're using 2.6.27-rc* git tree, pull the master branch of the
tree above into yours, and run make oldconfig. That is,
% cd /your/git-tree
% git pull git://...../sound-unstable-2.6.git master
If you are not using 2.6.27-rc*, or not familiar with git, you can try
alsa-driver-unstable snapshot tarball available at
Run configure, make and make install as usual ALSA-driver tarball.
(I didn't check whether the tarball correctly includes the sbxfi
stuff. It should have been generated automatically. If not, wait
for a while. If it still doesn't include sbxfi code, please report.
I'll fix it tomorrow morning.)
The driver is built only for 2.6.26 or later. If you have an older
kernel, edit alsa-driver*/kconfig-vers and change the version of
CONFIG_SND_SBXFI to 2.6.24 or whatever you want. Then run
./gitcompile, instead of configure in this case to update the
The driver is totally untested. It's just compiled without errors,
but not reviewed after a quick writing. So, don't expect it ever runs
at the first try. A crash is highly possible.
There are some build conditions found in sound/pci/sbxfi/sbxfi.c,
starting with XXX_*. You can change it if you want. As default, it's
for non-fullduplex but accept different rates. Not sure whether this
works at all.
Any test- (and better debugging-) reports are appreciated.
