Re: bounty for fixing ALSA's powermac driver
ben mentioned some thoughts he had on improving the
driver, many of which (or mainly from what i read)
involved dividing up the driver into
chipset groups... something like that
as obviously not every mac has the same sound hardware
but for some wierd reason we just have an all in one
driver (which has its pros and cons)
seperating it up into chipset groups means that
perhaps a few people will be inconvenienced, but
that people will be more able (and perhaps more
willing) to bug fix and tweak. i for one, not
being much of a kernel hacker, am terrified
of potentially fiddling with a monolithic driver
please forgive me if im wrong.

According to the following BTS entry, the ALSA maintainer assigned to the
snd-powermac driver doesn't even have any Mac to play with:
This prooves that all attempts at fixing the driver have been shooting in
the dark. No f***** wonder the snd-powermac driver is such a mess!
Wouldn't it be a good idea to place a bounty to encourage Ubuntu PPC
developers to get around fixing snd-powermac for all Mac PPC chips?
