So that you can be kept updated. First of all, the alsa-driver version of the ALSA modules don’t work with 2.6.19-rc1. This means that you either have to use internal modules (and then pthreak will take care of you when you report bugs 😉 ) or you need the HG/Mercurial version. I’m going to work on masked 9999 versions for -driver and -headers building out of the Mercurial repository, but it might take some time because I’m not yet sure if it’s worth the hassle, and I have to write them down myself. It might also come to be more troublesome and lead to even more silly bugs, so I have to think about this.
Regard another package, mt-daapd, as the author is moving out of mt-daapd.org and instead moved to Firefly, I’m not sure if the package will remain as media-sound/mt-daapd or not. I haven’t added latest nightlie because the author says it’s not working, so I’ll wait for a newer version, although I have to say I was expecting a new release sooner, and possibly my patches merged, or Avahi support added. I have to say that I expected better from MT-Daapd.
I’ll try to spend some more time on xine later on today, so that at least I can try to complete one of the many things I’ve started for it, even if the council thing denying the need to switch SCM pisses me off.
The tangerine guy is cool. He helped me with my DAAP questions. If you can get past its C#, it might be worth checking out.
