Subject: Re: soundcard, can't record
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2004 11:13:49 -0700
Since you are using emu10k1 and alsa-lib-1.0.6, you may need to
recompile packages which link against alsa-lib:

einfo "If you are using an emu10k1 based sound card, you will need to"
einfo "recompile packages that link against alsa-lib due to some ABI"
einfo "changes between 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 unique to that hardware. See"
einfo "the following URL for more information:"
einfo "http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65347"
