Compiling Alsa Modules from Takashi Iwai’s GIT Repository

Download your current kernel headers:
sudo aptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

If the command fails with “not found” error, install headers package appropriate for your running kernel. Or install whole kernel source by
sudo apt-get source linux-image-$(uname -r)

Download development software stack:
sudo aptitude install kernel-package

Clone git sound tree:
git clone

If needed, switch to another branch:
cd sound
git checkout -b ak411x-fix remotes/origin/topic/ak411x-fix
cd ..

Clone git alsa-driver-build tree:
git clone

Setup alsa kernel, configure, compile:
cd alsa-driver-build.git/alsa
utils/setup-alsa-kernel ../../sound

If your kernel headers are located in a different directory than /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r), specify the path with the -c parameter:
utils/setup-alsa-kernel -c /usr/src/YOUR_KERNEL_SOURCE_OR_HEADERS ../../sound

Install the compiled modules:
sudo make install

reboot the machine or just reload the drivers:

killall /usr/bin/pulseaudio; sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound stop; sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound stop; sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel; sudo modprobe snd-ice1724
