I know - I am on all the ALSA lists and read every bug report. And in
fact compilation errors are quite rare. The numbers are misleading
because "0-Compilation error" is the default category in the bug tracker
and lots of users don't set it correctly ;-)

It is unfortunate that users hitting an already-fixed bug have to
compile it themselves, but I think the solution is for the distros to
follow ALSA a bit more closely and apply the critical "no sound" fixes
to their packages rather than waiting for the next release. I know for
a fact that Ubuntu does this.


To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
