<kernel-version> should be replaced with your kernel version,
including any EXTRAVERSION such as -ac1 or -ac2. If you are using a normal
kernel tarball, it will simply be the standard number (such as
--with-sequencer=yes : This tells the
alsa-driver package to build the sequencer modules for whichever soundcards
you are building for. Most people want them so you will usually want to
leave it set to yes.
--with-oss=yes : This tells the package to
build the OSS/Free emulation modules. Again, most people want this so it's
probably best to stick with yes.
--with-isapnp=no : Most sound cards these days
are PCI and so ISA Plug and Play support isn't needed. If you are using an
ISA soundcard, it's best to say yes here.
--with-cards=... : You can tell the script just
to build the drivers for your particular sound card here. For full information
on which drivers are available see ./configure
--help. If you aren't sure which chipset your soundcard uses,
have a look in CARDS-STATUS in the alsa-driver source
tree. If you want to build all drivers (for some reason) then
simply leave out the --with-cards statement
