[mythtv-users] Installing alsa-driver 1.0.23 - what did I miss?

I'm working on getting audio onto my hdmi output, which requires the 
latest alsa-driver (1.0.23).  I can't find an rpm, so I'm trying to 
build and install from source.  It looks pretty straight-forward and it 
looked like it worked, but alsa-info.sh reports the previous version 
(1.0.21).  Does this look correct?

- download alsa-driver source and un-pack 
- ./configure --with-kernel=/usr/src/kernels/
- make
- make install
- ./snddevices
- reboot

When I run "alsa-info.sh", I get:

!!ALSA Version

Driver version:     1.0.21
Library version:   
Utilities version:  1.0.22

Did I miss a step?  One of the Ubuntu sites ran "sudo /sbin/alsa-utils 
stop" before running the build.  Maybe I needed to shut it down first?
