I have other nvidia drivers installed, but if I reboot back to 2.4.20-37
it works. With the new kernel, I get a black screen. After a long time
it appears a message saying that X could not be started. I tried to
the driver from the src rpm (I have the macros). The compilation went
but the result was the same. I recompiled using "with devices".
All logs look fine. If I go to a console screen and use "lsmod" the dirver
but the used field is 0 instead of 6.

I used alsa-driver-1.0.9-37.1_rc4a_.rh7.3.at.src.rpm, the only one available
Everything else is 1.0.9 (latest version).
The low recording volume precludes me of using any voip application with
drivers. I have another box with Intel onboard sound (but fedora 1), and the
sound is great.
But the low volume was also in the previous version. The difference is that
is broken (maybe something has always been broken with the mic capture
The only thing about my redhat 7.3 box is that it uses ximian gnome 2, and
to be able to have
new versions of firefox, thunderbird, acroread 7, etc... working I upgraded
glibc to the lastest
version of redhat 9. But the system has been running great since then. I
have planet ccrma
kernel installed and generated alsa and nvidia drivers for it using ATrpms
src.rpms So the system
is pretty usable. I run everything I need on it.
