Re: Expanding towards ALSA

Low latency and more flexibility -- especially if you're using Linux for professional audio and video work. Take a look at PlanetCCRMA for one-stop shopping for a high-performance audio-visual Linux workhorse. Currently RedHat, but the keeper of this repository is in the process of putting together a Fedora-based set of packages.

I am interested in Brian's original question. Why would you want to use Alsa? What advantages does it have?

Believe it or not, I had never heard of alsaconf before! :-) My guess would
be because it isn't installed by default with "make install"...
I'll check it out and eventually include it in further alsa-driver
packages.

In the meantime, there are instructions and links on how to configure
modules.conf here : http://freshrpms.net/docs/alsa/


Really? That's incredible. It's a fairly simple script; it takes several readings and guesses at a /etc/modules.conf modification, and it usually guesses pretty accurately. It's a really nice thing.

   Under RH8/9 the FreshRPMs versions of Alsa have had alsaconf, but it
had a slightly-broken set of startup scripts. (/etc/rc.d/init.d/asound,
etc).  Nothing big; just a little bug that only makes it iffy the first
time around.

   But I noticed that there's no "tools" RPM on FreshRPMS- there is on
other ones, but the version numbers don't match up, so I didn't want to
risk it.  I thought maybe it was moved to the "utils" RPM, but it's not
in there.

   Someone suggested I rebuild from an SRPM, but that didn't cause it
to magically appear, either. :)  No biggie- I Googled for someone else's
/etc/modules.conf file who also had an SBLive, and it worked on the
first pull.

   Someone else mentioned that it's part of the development tree;
somewhere in the vast collection of files that eventually make it to the
RPM, alsaconf exists, somewhere.  But unfortunately I don't have any
details- I don't dabble in the affairs of kernel drivers- they're quick
to anger and...how's that old line go?

   Thanks!
