This Alsa package was put together by Clacker.  I am sure many are eager to get Alsa working on our 2.0PR release.  Thanks Clacker!

This is not working for me on a fresh boot with just gnu-utils. The setup looks like it goes ok but there is no sound when I affempt to play something in xmms.

clivesay, did you boot with the dsl alsa option?  I forgot to mention that in the info file, but that's the same as the old alsadebs.dsl was.  I sounds like you did run the setup from the menu, so it couldn't be that.  Also, it only works with the 2.0 dsl since the earlier versions used a different kernel.

Did alsaconf run and find the sound card you have?

If I had though about it before, I could have added a check in the bash script to look for "alsa" in the boot command line and that gnu-utils was loaded before the script ran.

This worked fine for me. Placed gnu-utils.dsl and alsa.dsl on a partition. Booted from liveCD with:
dsl dma toram alsa mydsl=hda7
When system booted selected menu option to setup alsa.
Setup was sucessful and sounds terrific.

Works great on my Gateway laptop, using liveCD with pcmcia flash as backup/restore device.

I know it doesn't take long to run the Setup Alsa from menu, but which files could I backup so I wouldn't have to run the setup?
