I'm on Arch Linux, I don't think I have a build directory.

Arch Linux has pkgbuilds on their site, similar to gentoo ebuilds. ... ty-x86_64/ from here, download and extract the tarball, then "makepkg --nobuild" to download and extract the sources in "src/" subdirectory. Edit the sources as needed, then build with "makepkg --noextract". See makepkg manual if you need more info and options, there's also something in wiki

I think this worked; it's playing at least. I disabled onboard sound and plugged in USB card; still showing onboard though. Residual?
