Re: summary of ALSA status on PPC as of kernel 2.6.13 (ALSA 1.0.9)

is their an active alsa developer for powerpc? or is it just that
someone knocks up some code for us and we compile and hope it works?

my bug reporting of powerpc sound problems to alsa was a little
bit like talking in a vacum.

are there people on this like (or its gentoo, fedorac etc counterparts)
actively working on snd_powermac?

on that note im an advocate for breaking snd_powermac up into chipsets
like snd_ppc_tumbler or something *shrug*

My impression is that recent PowerMacs using he i2c interface for the
audio controls are rather well supported, while G3 and oldworld still
have plenty of rough spots.  Early G4 platforms also showcase various
minor bugs, mostly related to microphone and muting support.

Note that, as indicated by ALSA developers as comment to ALSA bug #306,
there *is* willingness to fix outstanding bugs, just as long as people
bother with submitting a bug report to the ALSA BTS for each issue.


Essentially, the ball is in the user's camp:  Report a bug and chances
are good that someone will eventually fix it; leave the issue unreported
and developers won't ever realize that bugs remain.
