Any ETA on the newest ALSA Release Candidate ebuild? The ALSA team has officially deprecated the 0.5.x versions, so it's time that we make 0.9.x the official Gentoo ALSA version!

they already have the ebuilds out, theyre just currently being masked because upgrade from .5 to .9 will mean major recompiles for some people. i guess they dont want people blindly emerge updating their system and then finding that nothing works, but of course the upgrade is inevitable

Looks like the ebuilds have just been unmasked, but alsa-lib and alsa-tools fail because they don't believe alsa-driver has been installed.

Code:
checking for alsa-driver package... not found or wrong version
configure: error: Install alsa-driver v0.9.0 package first...


Maybe they're looking for literally "0.9.0", instead of 0.9.0rc1?

I am using Alsa 0.9, but I have actually added an -ALSA to my USE variable, since ALSA in USE enables alsa in many applications that only support ALSA 0.5, and break with 0.9 (kdemultimedia-3 is one of them I had troubles with).

So, until those packages are fixed (to either using ALSA 0.9, or not using ALSA if ALSA 0.9 is installed), it would be very wise to keep ALSA 0.9 masked out (which probably is why it is masked out ;) )

So until ALSA 0.9 goes completely mainstream, I'm left with it's OSS emulation layer as primary sound driver, but well, it works ;)

@Target I have the same problem!
The entry in alsa-lib-0.9.0_rc1.ebuild seems to be correct though. It's looking for alsa-driver-0.9.0_rc1 and that's the package which IS installed. It's not masked either ... I don't get it. A bug?

The problem is that alsa-lib configure checks for /usr/include/asound.h which doesn't get installed by alsa-driver. A temporary fix is to untar the alsa-driver-0.9.0rc1.tar.bz2 in your home directory and copy all the header fiiles from alsa-kernel/include into /usr/include/sound e.g.

cd ~/
cp /usr/portage/distfiles/alsa-driver-0.9.0rc1.tar.bz2 .
tar xfvj alsa-driver-0.9.0rc1.tar.bz2
cd alsa-driver-0.9.0rc1/alsa-kernel/include
cp * /usr/include/sound (as root)

then emerge alsa-lib and it shold work

The latest alsa-driver ebuilds (r1) fixes this problem. Although they are masked at the moment.
