The three ebuilds (alsa-driver, alsa-lib, and alsa-utils) posted at the url:
install latest 0.9 version of alsa drivers.
I'll take this one if no one objects.
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
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.
