"Two significant sound driver releases are now available
from Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA): ALSA library and
utils 0.5.8 as of June 5th, and ALSA driver 0.5.8a on June
6th. In 0.5.8, two new drivers were added: the C-Media CMI8338
and 8738 PCI driver and the Yamaha YMF72x,74x,75x driver. These
releases add support for many users that have on-board Yamaha sound
(on many Intel motherboards), and APM support is further supported.
The 0.5.8 release also contains bug fixes including support for the
latest Linux kernels. In 0.5.8a, a bug fix for the latest 2.3 and
2.4-test kernels was released. In addition, the Yamaha YMF724F
driver was fixed."
"To get the latest ALSA driver, visit their web site at
http://www.alsa-project.org. You can download the ALSA driver from
their FTP server at ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/. The latest
drivers and utilities are available in bzip2 format, which is a
standard Linux compression utility. You will need to download the
latest ALSA driver, utilities, and library in order to have a full,
working ALSA sound system."
