Thanks for the reply.  I am up and working with the Redhat-supplied ALSA 
drivers in the 2.6 kernel, that's not the problem.  There is a bug in the old 
version of ALSA shipped with 2.6.1, to do with Ooops-es in snd-usb-audio.

Here is my bugzilla report, containing the note from an Alsa dev explaining 
that it is a fixed bug, which has so far excited zero interest:


I also posted about it on fedora-devel-list to no interest.

Over on the Alsa-user ml a dev explained that even in 2.6, you can still 
compile the usual alsa-driver package and install it in order to update the 
Alsa modules, just like on 2.4.  This is what I was trying to do, but the 
compile is broken on Redhat 2.6.1, at least it is for me.

This should be more interesting than it apparently is IMHO, since it goes to 
the question of if FC2 is going to ship with broken ALSA modules for 
snd-usb-audio or if Redhat will patch it up to a later revision.
