Sorry for this being off-topic to the kernel list..

but if you ftp to the site that you got the sound drivers from, there
is a patch that you can apply to that file.. then reconfigure, recompile, and
you're set. I found that out last night when it blew up on me, and took a
chance and looked at the patch.. it compiled clean afterwards.. so give it a
shot.. Ta!
