The three ebuilds (alsa-driver, alsa-lib, and alsa-utils) posted at the url: http://cdf.toronto.edu/~agenkin/alsa-0.9.tar.gz install latest 0.9 version of alsa drivers.

I'll take this one if no one objects.
Comment 2 Arcady Genkin 2002-02-03 01:38:18 UTC
Here's a chaser: I wasn't sure whether it's kosher to run the "snddevices" scripts, creating the appropriate device nodes, from the ebuild script for alsa-driver. Perhaps that script should even be installed somewhere for the user to run after the portage installation.

Commited to CVS. Initially packaged masked for further testing. The alsa-lib-0.9.0beta10a package no longer supplies libasound.so.1, but rather libasound.so.2 This will break everthing previously linked against libasound.so.1 (And I mean everything, I could not get Gnome desktop to start without recompiling everything against libasound.so.2) Fortunately, libasound.so.2 seems to be backwards compatibile with libasound.so.1, so I added a symlink from .2 to .1 This needs further testing, particularly for desktops and apps other than Gnome. The good news is that I am listening to my mp3's, so it works. Added version munging, ebuilds should be version independent if subsequent betas are released and removed src_unpack hack. Thanks Arcady!
