Recently while upgrading to the latest kernel found the below issue with
alsa-hda dkms driver.
Most of the macros are already part of the kernel 3.8.2/3/4, so it
causes the compilation to fail.

PFA make.log for error and patch to fix them. Tested the patch with
2013/3/8 driver.


You are not meant to use the 0.201303081653~precise1 version on top of anything but a 3.2 kernel. I've actually adjusted that today, so that it won't build/install on anything but a 3.2 kernel.

Support for running a 3.8 kernel on precise will be fixed once there is such a kernel in the archive - i e, there is currently a linux-image-generic-lts-quantal for running 3.5 kernel in precise, but not a corresponding one for 3.8 yet.

Meanwhile, you can try installing the Raring version of the oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms package. Hopefully it works although it isn't officially supported.
