This question already has an answer here:

I have a linux system and updated alsa from 1.0.23 to 1.0.25, It works as expected.

Steps which I performed to compile:

./configure make make install

Now , I have 100's of client machines in which I need to deploy this ALSA update. But, these machine does not have make/setup tools install.

To deploy this update what is the best way?

I even tried creating a package using CHECKINSTALL.

So, with created package I deployed it in 5 machines, in 3 machines the driver got updated and 2 machines reports no information on soundcard.

Am i missing something.

The alsa-driver package is outdated; the sound drivers are part of kernel, and are updated by updating the kernel package.
