The 1.2 branch of DL has support for alsa.
I'm not sure if it still works and you most likely will need to update the
alsa software itself.
Other then that you'll just have to compile your own version of DL and
select the alsa stuff in "make menuconfig"

>> NOTES of a 1370 install under GENTOO LINUX <<
Here are detailed notes from installing a 1371 under gentoo, which
took me quite a while.
They may of some use. I'm not done much with DL, except use it as a
great stand-alone router.
I understand the drivers should be loaded automatically (& I think
intelligently) if compiled as modules,
but it seemed safer to compile them in directly
Assuming the kernel source is installed:
to recompile the kernel
Device Drivers -> Sound ->
<* > Sound card Support
<*> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
in this I enabled most everything like the OSS options
<*> (Createive) Ensoniq AudioPCI 1370 [about
1/2 way down, right next to my 1370]
just to be safe, I turned on the 1371 as well
make && make modules_install
cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.24-gentoo-r5
x86_64 for the AMD64 , you may need another image
& update lilo or grub
The results of menuconfig are stored in ".config", so I keep copies
of it named with the same postfix as I name the matching kernel in /boot
Since I'm using gentoo w/ AMD64, I reference the compile instructions in
but there's all similar
You may need to Install alsa-oriented packages.I ran emerge (gentoo's
version of apt-get)
on everything that looks like it might be relevant. I've the 1371. I
can get sound from use mp3blaster
& mplayer, but not from ogg123. I don't understand why. I also needed
to use the
"t" option in mp3blaster to toggle thru the mixer options to make sure
turned up. Installing alsamixer & turning up the vol on everything
may be useful as well.
vmware under gentoo does not see any sound card.
I put in the 1371 card afterI having no success using the MB audio.
