Make sure ALSA is installed properly. If not,
+
 
+
# pacman -S alsa-utils
+
 
+
will do the trick.
+
 
+
We will then need to install Echo Mia ALSA drivers, firmware and the Echomixer.
+
 
+
 
+
First, check what versions of alsa-lib and alsa-utils are installed by running:
+
 
+
$ pacman -Q alsa-utils
+
 
+
Then download the sources for ALSA:
+
 
+
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/alsa-driver-1.0.x.tar.bz2
+
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/firmware/alsa-firmware-1.0.x.tar.bz2
+
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/tools/alsa-tools-1.0.x.tar.bz2
+
 
+
where x is replaced as needed with the correct version.
+
 
+
Then we compile the driver with support for mia.
+
 
+
tar xjvf alsa-driver-1.0.x.tar.bz2
+
cd alsa-driver-1.0.x
+
./configure --with-cards=mia
+
make
+
sudo make install
+
 
+
Then we install the firmware for the card.
+
 
+
cd ../alsa-firmware-1.0.x
+
./configure
+
make
+
sudo make install
+
 
+
Then we install the echomixer.
+
 
+
cd ../alsa-tools-1.0.x/echomixer/
+
./configure
+
make
+
sudo make install
+
 
+
Now we need to add the snd-mia module to the modules line in /etc/rc.conf. If there are other sound modules active, that conflict with the snd-mia module, disable them. In my case, I had to disable my snd-hda-intel, prefixing it with a '!'.
+
 
+
Now, we have to edit some configuration files.
