Description Fabio Erculiani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-03-09 17:51:20 UTC
alsa-lib's /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf should contain configuration file pointers to files installed by net-wireless/bluez (/usr/share/alsa/bluetooth.conf) and media-libs/alsa-plugins (/usr/share/alsa/pulse.conf). In this way, if these pkgs are installed, respective ALSA plugins and devices will work out-of-the-box.
For the record, this configuration has been taken from Ubuntu and makes everything working flawlessly.

See attached patches

Reproducible: Always
