If you want to (re)compile the kernel ensure you have the kernel
source install appropriately.

If installing a new version of ALSA, make sure the old version is
removed from your system, and verify this by searching for old modules
in your /lib/modules/'uname -r' directory. After you have installed
the new version (alsa and alsa-lib and utils if you want them) run
depmod to update the module dependencies and then try modprobing the
new ALSA modules.
