Simos

When you try to compile Alsa on Ubuntu 10.10, it compiles fine. When you try to load the new kernel modules, you get
....

As far as I understand, this is related to the rest of the kernel being compiled with the Alsa OSS sound options.
I am actually fine with this decision of removing OSS. OSS was deprecated for ages.

Hello,

Sorry I don't know how to do for stock alsa. But as far as I understand here your problem is maybe just related because oss is removed .... The 10.10 kernel is NOW COMPILED WHITHOUT OSS. And this is THE PROBLEM A LOT OF OTHER USERS HAVE..

For Your problem just google around and i'm shure you'll find it somewhere. It's possible that you have to use a patch somewhere before you compile.
