alsa-utils source package in Ubuntu


alsa-utils ( precise; urgency=low

  * Merge from debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - Move alsactl to sbin
    - Move init script volume settings to new alsactl database:
      + Set sane level for 'Speaker' and 'Headphone', needed for Dell Mini 9
        and Dell E series
      + ute PC Beep on hda cards that support it during initial volume setup
      + Mute *Analog/Digital Control for Creative cards by default
      + Default Digital Input Source to be Digital Mic 1 so that users
        with digital mic will be able to use it out of the box
      + Mute "IEC958 Optical Raw" by default
      + Set sane level for headphone 1 for Dell Studio XPS with 2.6.30
      + Prefer built-in digital mics on newer Dells
      + Unmute 'Line HP Swap' for Dove boards
    - ship udev rules file in /lib/udev/rules.d
    - debian/README.init.cs4236: Include in /usr/share/doc/alsa-utils so that
      users of snd-cs4236 (e.g., ThinkPad 600) can have audible sound
    - debian/patches/unset_pulse_internal.patch: We don't want alsamixer to
      show the pulse mixer by default, since it can be controlled from
      pulseaudio itself
    - Use upstart jobs for storing/restoring card settings
    - Include several changes from upstream git master:
      + upstream git changesets:
      + dcb90a77 - Use "Found hardware:" instead "Unknown hardware:"
      + 7f6a55e2 - use "generic method" instead "guess method"
      + 52bd2f8a - Handle "Capture Source" and "Mic Boost"
      + ef919a47 - Initialize also "Master Front Playback Volume" & "Switch"
    - Add udev rule to apply UCM profiles for panda and equivalent hardware
  * Install alsa udev rules, at the least they are needed for hotplugged
  * Build-dep on libsamplerate-dev, so alsaloop works properly

alsa-utils ( unstable; urgency=low

  [ Elimar Riesebieter ]
  * Remove alsactl's native installed udev rule. Hopefully closes: #636437
    really now.

alsa-utils ( unstable; urgency=low

  [ Jordi Mallach ]
  * Add aplay_interactive.patch from Takashi Iwai to revert a behaviour
    change in aplay which broke festival and possibly other scripts, while
    retaining the new interactive functionality via a new -i option
    (closes: #638369).

  [ Elimar Riesebieter ]
   * Don't install udev rules. It is not needed to run alsactl. Instead make
     init depend on "mountall" to make sure /usr and /var is mounted for
     running alsactl.  (Closes: #636437)
   * Added "build-arch: build ; build-indep: build" to rules to satisfy lintian.
   * Install executable

alsa-utils ( unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
    - allows control of "Auto-Mute Mode" (see #631963).
  * Pass --disable-alsaconf to configure to disable alsaconf in a sane way.
  * Replace move_asound_state_to_var.patch with --with-asound-state-dir.
  * Bump Build-Depends on alsa-lib to >=, for alsa/use-case.h.
    You would expect checks for this, right?
  * Bump to debhelper compat v8.
  * Tweak description.
  * Drop unneeded README.source.
  * Add patch from Javi Fernández-Sanguino Peña to improve the
    speaker-test(1) manpage with usage examples. Thanks! Closes: #620513.
  * Define _GNU_SOURCE to fix a build failure in alsaloop.
  * Avoid having the same short description for the main and udeb packages.
