  Modified:             alsa-guide.xml
  Log:
  remove more alsa-driver cruft, leaving only the section on switching from alsa-driver to in-kernel, since alsa-driver is masked for removal from Portage

-<title>ALSA on Gentoo</title>

-<p>
-Historically, Gentoo offered two ways to get ALSA up and running: the
-<e>in-kernel</e> driver and the external <c>alsa-driver</c> package. The two
-solutions essentially do the same thing; this made supporting the external
-package extremely difficult and time-consuming. The Gentoo maintainers decided
-to discontinue support for the <c>alsa-driver</c> package, concentrating their
-resources on the ALSA drivers available within the Linux kernel. This guide will
-focus solely on configuring ALSA via the in-kernel driver.

-If you still require the <c>alsa-driver</c> package, please email the <mail
-link="alsa-bugs@g.o">Gentoo ALSA maintainers</mail> with why the
-in-kernel drivers don't work for you. Be sure to include detailed error logs.
