I've got the HAL2 driver into the main ALSA CVS tree now. To celebrate that,
I've uploaded a new version of the driver. Including a binary kernel with sound
support this time.
If you want to play some music go through the following steps:
1. Get a binary linux-indy-sound kernel from
2. Install the ALSA and mpg123 precompiled RPM packages you get from
ftp://ftp.linux.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/ALSA (note that I have moved it out
from the test directory).
4. You will now have to create the ALSA sound devices. Run the script
snddevices in /usr/doc/alsa-driver-0.3.0-pre5.
5. Insert the modules, in the order: snd.o snd-pcm.o snd-timer.o
snd-pcm1.o snd-mixer.o snd-pcm1-oss.o snd-hal2.o snd-card-hal2.o. Write this
in the boot scripts if you don't want to insert the modules manually each
6. Play audio!
7. Tell me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if it works!
