I guess I'm not "basicly everyone" then. On the other hand, alsa-lib
0.9.8 -> 1.0.1 did brake so that I had to recompile a newer 2.6.* kernel
to get any sound out of the system. Countless other kernel/alsa
upgrades have forced me to reconfigure something to get sound or
mixer settings back.
The _only_ case I've heard new hotplug brakes alsa if
1) you have more than one soundcard
2) you wanted to have the non-first in PCI bus soundcard as "default"
3) you are not using a desktop env sound system like esound or arts to
select the default sound card and instead rely on /dev/ symlinks
Is that really basicly everyone or a loud group of powerusers?
