I don't want to support non-modular ALSA. I can understand ALSA used from in-kernel, but if you use it builtin, there are *too many* problems that I do not want to start seeing reported on this bugzilla. ALSA *has to be compiled as modules*.
Comment 4 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) 2006-09-16 05:38:59 UTC
(In reply to comment #3) > ALSA *has to be compiled as modules*. *sigh* works fine here and the default to modules won't be changed due to this minor init script change. If we don't support it, alsa drivers should probably be ripped out of the kernel...

I'd like it was, but it's not because some people prefer it that way. I already told you my reason, I can accept using ALSA from kernel as a module, but *built-in it won't always work* thus I don't want any kind of overhead of maintainership. *Especially considering I'm doing this work as a one-man project.* Feel free to take over ALSA and apply whatever policy you want, as I already said to fox2mike in the past and to kernel folks.

If upstream isn't supporting it... Why should we?
