OK, thanks much Giuliano & Sergei! I got the alsa driver updated (it appears) by simply installing the Header files for Debian Squeeze, Linux 2.6.32-5-686 (this is my specific kernel), which I found & installed via Synaptic Package Manager... To be clear, the first time I tried, I forgot the './configure --with-cards=mia,virmidi --with-sequencer=yes' & just did ./configure, make make install' After realizing my error, I then reinstalled using the commands you offered Giuliano. Problem now is that I get the same result as before, regarding sound & various sound aps (dis)functioning. I'm inclined to think that perhaps the Alsa driver may not have been (all?) of the problem here (unless doing the install before, somehow made a unrepaired error?). Now given that the header files seem to have disappeared before (don't know this for sure, but in any case, I had working sound until this mentioned Feb "update"), could there be some problem with the MiaMidi firmware too (or something like this)? These below, are some of the options someone else has earlier suggested (Debian Multimedia forum, & they just gave up trying after a few tries, & I got left, hanging), that I tried, & now, retried, but look like same results as before (including no sound): aplay -vv /home/henry/Music/LouisArmstrong.wav Playing WAVE '/home/henry/Music/LouisArmstrong.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 44100 Hz, Stereo aplay: set_params:1116: Unable to install hw params: ACCESS: RW_INTERLEAVED FORMAT: S16_LE SUBFORMAT: STD SAMPLE_BITS: 16 FRAME_BITS: 32 CHANNELS: 2 RATE: 44100 PERIOD_TIME: (124807 124808) PERIOD_SIZE: 5504 PERIOD_BYTES: 22016 PERIODS: 4 BUFFER_TIME: (499229 499230) BUFFER_SIZE: 22016 BUFFER_BYTES: 88064 TICK_TIME: 0 <snip> ~$ lsmod | grep snd snd_mia 17885 1 snd_seq_midi 3562 0 snd_seq_midi_event 3750 1 snd_seq_midi snd_rawmidi 12578 2 snd_mia,snd_seq_midi snd_pcm 47087 2 snd_mia snd_seq 35078 2 snd_seq_midi,snd_seq_midi_event snd_timer 12546 2 snd_pcm,snd_seq snd_seq_device 3855 3 snd_seq_midi,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq snd 31745 8 snd_mia,snd_seq_midi,snd_rawmidi,snd_pcm,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device soundcore 3450 1 snd snd_page_alloc 4881 2 snd_mia,snd_pcm <snip> ~$ cat /proc/asound/cards 0 [Mia ]: Echo_Mia - Mia Mia rev.1 (DSP56361) at 0xfe900000 irq 17 Thanks for your helps here, I am not looking forward to doing an(other) clean install! Perhaps there is another suitable kernel available by now, like maybe an 'rt' kernel? & then, would I have to do a more or less complicated, risky compilation?)! Regards, Henry P.s., Giuliano, do my PM emails come through to you now?

Anyway, I installed (via my package manager) in '/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2'/usr/src/; tar jxvf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 . Compilation process need kernel headr _files_, not the archive.[snip] You need to unpack the tarball: cd
Yes, but it also has to be configured. Hopefully he can get the config from /proc/config.gz .
