I am using Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS. How can I upgrade the ALSA driver from 1.0.20 to 1.0.23?

why do you need 1.0.23 (the version from maverick)? If you uplift your 10.04.1 to 10.04.3 you will have v1.0.22 - any reasons why your computer is 12-18 months without security patches? –  fossfreedom Dec 25 '11 at 23:04
