Description Maxim Kammerer 2012-03-31 23:08:40 UTC
The firmware is (correctly) installed into top-level <image>/lib/firmware, but the ebuild does not remove it:

    use alsa_cards_hdsp || use alsa_cards_hdspm || rm -rf "${D}/usr/share/alsa/firmware/hdsploader"

This results in:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 97652 Mar 31 22:46 /lib/firmware/digiface_firmware.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 97652 Mar 31 22:46 /lib/firmware/digiface_firmware_rev11.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 97652 Mar 31 22:46 /lib/firmware/multiface_firmware.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 97652 Mar 31 22:46 /lib/firmware/multiface_firmware_rev11.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 97652 Mar 31 22:46 /lib/firmware/rpm_firmware.bin

Incidentally I found your í years old issue. Did you want to say that the ebuild removes the hdsp files by mistake?

Maybe try the following:

ALSA_CARDS="hdspm" emerge sys-firmware/alsa-firmware

Looking at the paths involved, my understanding is that the issue at hand is that the ebuild executes:

`rm -rf "${ED}"/usr/share/alsa/firmware/hdsploader`

to remove undesired firmware files during src_install. But, since those particular files are actually found at:

"${ED}"/lib/firmware/{digiface_firmware{,_rev11}.bin,multiface_firmware{,_rev11}.bin,rpm_firmware.bin}

it becomes effectively a NOOP and they always get installed.

I observed that "${ED}"/lib/firmware/{ctefx-desktop,ctefx-r3di}.bin also slip through - perhaps a missing IUSE?
