Hello Abdullah,

In the last days I updated to 6.2R and installed the above driver. It
worked as described out of the box. Thanks for the work you (and the others)
have done!

When KDE comes up and opens the /dev/dsp0.0 (I've put /dev/dsp0.0
as output in the Control Center), the mixer values
default to

$ mixer
Mixer vol      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer speaker  is currently set to   0:0
Mixer line     is currently set to   0:0
Mixer mic      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer rec      is currently set to   0:0

which does not play anything (for example not the greeting
dingle-dongle of KDE) while a good value would be

$ mixer
Mixer vol      is currently set to  24:24
Mixer pcm      is currently set to  34:34
Mixer speaker  is currently set to  28:28

So I've inserted a small shell script into ~/.kde/Autostart/mixer.sh
which sets the above values; don't know if this could be done on
some other way;

so far so good;

The only thing I can't get to work is 'xmms'. No audio comes out
and the volume in 'xmms' is set to zero and can't be changed.
Has someone a working .xmms/config file for snd_hda? Thx
