Default alsa-firmware - bug #597897

Hello.

The Debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/597897 is a RFP for alsa-firmwares.

I read every email related to this package on the debian-kernel mailing-list [1], but I
cannot understand the reason why those firmwares are not yet part of firmware-nonfree package.

However, I packaged the upstream source for my personal use, so I have the deb package
ready. I can ITP the bug #597897 but I don't know anything about autotools (used in the
sources), so probably if I become the maintainer I will not be able to solve package's
bugs related to autotools, but I can learn. If one DD can sponsor the package, I'll
suggest myself as the maintainer or co-maintainer if someone wants to help.


Best regards
Simone

Why do post this to pkg-alsa-devel? To contact ALSA developers
please consider to add alsa-devel@alsa-project.org. What should
Debian pkg-alsa-devel do to kick off this process?

So what?

It was a recipient of the mail I was replying to.

Maybe you can tell me who looks after alsa-firmware upstream.

Hi Ben and others,

first thank you for taking care about this issue.

You can get latest tarball of alsa-firmware from here:
ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/firmware/alsa-firmware-1.0.24.1.tar.bz2

./cofigure make will build *.bin files in hdsploader dir.
Files digiface_firmware.bin, digiface_firmware_rev11.bin, multiface_firmware.bin, multiface_firmware_rev11.bin and rpm_firmware.bin
should be placed to /lib/firmware/hdsploader/ directory.
At least I have them installed there and it works fine for me and I think hdsploader search for firmware there.
Maybe somebody from pkg-alsa-devel can comment on this?

If you need get contact with upstream this should be right address: alsa-devel@alsa-project.org

best regards

mira

That's ok, I'll edit my package to install those files in that directory.


Bye

Hello Elimar, Jordi

I am original submitter of this bug [1] and I contact you as admins of pkg-alsa-devel

To be confused by your answer here, I would like to ask what is your attitude to the process of including missing alsa-firmwares to linux-firmware-non-free package?

I think it was quite natural that alsa-devel has been asked for opinion and help or am I wrong?

Sadly this process seems to be stuck now

Best regards

mira
