In This tutorial, I will describe how to install ESI MAYA 44 PCI under UBUNTU 8.04
ESI MAYA 44 driver was made by Rainer Zimmerman, thanks to initiative of Piotr Zaryk. I just made update, against new alsa-driver source code. Unfortunately, nobody knows if this patch whenever become official part of alsa, because Rainer didn't sign-off his driver and contact with him was lost. If you want see this patch merge, in the next release of alsa-driver, please write a message on alsa-driver mailing list.
Turn on terminal and type the following code:
Extract patch and alsa-driver-1.0.17:
cd; mkdir maya44; cd maya44
Apply patch by typing:
tar -xjf alsa-driver-1.0.17.tar.bz2
tar -xvzf maya44patch-alsa-driver-1.0.17.diff.tar.gz
patch -p0 < maya44patch-alsa-driver-1.0.17.diff
Configure and make alsa-driver:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
If everything goes well, you can install new driver by typing:
./configure --with-cards=ice1724 --with-sequencer=yes ; make
Restart your system and enjoy your ESI MAYA 44 sound card under Linux.
