Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251307
alsa-lib has wrong plugin directory "plugindir"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
Description of problem:
Due to a bug (typo) in the configure script of alsa-lib, the plugin directory is
set to "plugindir" (instead of "/usr/lib/alsa-lib") during the build.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install alsa-lib-1.0.14-1.fc7.
2. Try to use a plugin, e.g. the pulseaudio plugin.
The plugin cannot be used because it won't be found in the non-exististing
directory named "plugindir".
Upstream released version 1.0.14a to fix this.
Upstream bug report: https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=3148
Please upgrade to 1.0.14a or use the patch from the upstream bug.

Patch to fix plugindir, taken from upstream bug report.
Fixed in alsa-lib-1.0.14-2.fc8, thanks.
Is there any chance to get this released as an update for F7?
it's here - alsa-lib-1.0.14-2.fc7
Installed it from koji, but it doesn't work as expected, unlike my local build
which was based on 1.0.14a. I did a bit of research and noticed that the patch
only fixes configure.in, which of course won't be used during a normal build
process, so that's (partly) my fault. Sorry for the trouble, hoping to get this
fixed before the next version of alsa-lib is released...
I'll attach a new patch based on the actual diff between the configure files of
version 1.0.14 and 1.0.14a.

New patch, this time for configure.
Don't mind, I'll update to 1.0.14a.
I installed the new rpm from koji, now it is working, thanks. Closing bug again
as builds for F7 and F8 were successful within koji.
alsa-lib-1.0.14-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

# rpm -q alsa-lib
Please, when patch configure.in update configure script too.
previous patch is ~2KiB long :) not much, i think.
it's fixed in alsa-lib-1.0.14-3.fc7 (update to 1.0.14a)
