Hmm... that's another possiblity indeed... for ALSA, as much as I would
like to, I am *forced* to dump RPMs for pure old fashioned installations
from source... Why?? They strip down the packages (uselessly, IMO), and
as such when problems occur you are left with very little to do
anything. I know I could build my own pakcages... but I'm way too lazy, LOL.
