Need Help with ALSA

Hey everyone I'm stuck trying to get ALSA up and running. I have an AUDIO 4 DJ usb sound card that I'm trying to get running. I tried to use the ALSA install script from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1046137&page=22 This doesn't work. I get the following error message: configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH I've tried this script on a different machine with ubuntu 8.10 and it installs and detects my soundcard. Although I'm still having problems with Jack after that. I'm trying to get a very basic set-up going here. I need some really basic instructions regarding alsa set-up on 64 studio. I'm pretty sure my hardware will work but I just need to figure out how to set up alsa/jack. aplay -l does not list my device but lsusb does.... sort of. From the output of lsusb I see this line: Bus 006 Device 006: ID 17cc:0839 Now on a different linux machine I have this same line show up but with Native Instruments appended on the end so it looks like: Bus 006 Device 006: ID 17cc:0839 Native Instruments I'm not sure if the lack of a device name in lsusb is important but it's kinda strange so I thought it might be. Please, if you have any experience with USB audio interfaces help me!! :) I'm kinda getting desperate. thomas

Hi Thomas, I'm not sure about your AUDIO 4 DJ usb sound card but I'm looking. t> message: configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH It looks like you don't have gcc installed. On 3.0beta3 here, when I run: $ which gcc /usr/bin/gcc $ locate bin/gcc /usr/bin/gccmakedep $ echo $PATH /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games If you're not seeing /usr/bin/gcc then it's probably not installed. On beta3 you would install the build-essential package. $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install build-essential Cheers! Dave.
