It is unclear to whom you replied, because you did not quote anything
and because your MS Outlook broke the thread. The list etiquette helps
with getting this right:

Also, compiling drivers from the project's official source yourself
should be the last resort, and I am not sure that it is sound advice in
this case (partly because it is unclear at whom it is directed).

Considering that the alsa version in Ubuntu 8.04 is 1.0.16-0ubuntu4, I
doubt that compiling that same version from the offical source makes a
positive contribution.
