We need more information!
Where did you compile, what did you compile and how (commands)

looks like the code tar file was missing the install file that the configure script was checking for.
or there is an error in the configure script.

:D

Try downloading alsa-driver-1.0.14 again and/or check installation notes - possibly the install/configure script is on a separate download

:lol:
configure: error: cannot find install-sh or install.sh in "." "./.." "./../.."

This indicates that install.sh is not there (sorry for the obvious) and install.sh should be a part of the package and you are in the folder of the package. As the compiler is found the path should be OK. This leads to the conclusion that there is something wrong with the package.

Hmmm - or is install.sh a part of the compiler? If so a reinstall of gcc may be the solution
Only compile once in a while so I haven't collected much experience (of the errors)

Glad it works :)
Boo and I both presumed install.sh to be a part of the package - you can't know everything :o
