Version bump - alsa 1.0.16
Last modified: 2008-05-06 03:29:40 EDT
alsa 1.0.16 was on the 6th Feb, and this might fix some of the PulseAudio/ALSA
issues (especially with Ekiga). Is it possible to update alsa to the latest
version in Fedora 8 so I can report back on these issues?
We need to coordinate the update with kernel - please let me know when
alsa-drivers 1.0.16 hits the F8 kernel update.
How do you find out when the alsa-driver update has gone into the kernel? I
tried looking around the kernel site but couldn't find anything.
install the kernel update and check /proc/asound/version
kernel 18.104.22.168-137.fc8 has alsa 1.0.15. Checking Koji ChangeLogs for the
kernel doesn't seem to suggest it has been included in it yet.
Would I need to do a version bump for alsa-driver in the kernel as a separate bug?
No, it's updated in upstream vanilla kernels.
Judging by commits to the kernel for 1.0.15, it took over a month before alsa
1.0.15 was committed into the kernel. 1.0.16rc2 was committed a few days after
release, but nothing yet on 1.0.16.
I'll monitor the situation and post back when it has been committed into the kernel.
Fedora 9 contains 1.0.16 packages. Closing as RAWHIDE.
