There is no trouble to be saved. We are providing the newest alsa
driver sources so that they can be build with whatever 2.6 kernel
you want. This is the intention of the alsa developers as well. So
FMPOV the Debian kernel maintainers have to cooperate with that idea

You are a only forward looking hacker. We want to provide this to
older versions too.

Please have a look at the Debian kernel patches for the reaseon why
alsa-source package doesn't build against the Debian kernels but to
the stock ones. Try talking to your co-maintainers ;-)


  Experience is something you don't get until
