So, there we are, Linus released kernel version 2.6.20, and alsa-driver-1.0.14_rc2 does not work; I had to create a new snapshot, and to get into the tree.
The problem is that this time the snapshot is after rc2 and before, well, I’m not sure if rc3 or final release, so I couldn’t just use _pre or _p; I ended up setting the version as 1.0.14_rc2_p3234, but this required me to ping and prod Zac because I wasn’t sure which versions of Portage supported this format, and because repoman decided not to allow me to commit this version. Thanks to him and Brian, now this is fixed.
Now ALSA should be all fine and ready for people to upgrade the kernel, without having to use the mercurial versions. Today was a day off, tomorrow it will be a work day, I’ll probably just be going to sleep soon, but I admit that listening to Dream Theater was quite relaxing today; too bad I can’t really work with DTs in the background, I’d need some Jazz music for that, it has proved to be quite good while designing and coding.
Anyway, for tonight I did my share of stuff.
