10 I think it would be nice to keep the alsa modules for more than one
11 kernel at a time (shouldn't be a problem, modules are in different
12 directories anyway).
14 Couldn't the alsa-drivers ebuild just be changed so it doesn't unmerge
15 the modules, if I am gonna change kernel I would still have to manually
16 delete /lib/modules/x.x.x because of all the other modules not "managed"
17 b ebuilds.
19 In my opinion the ebuilds shouldn't "control" kernel modules at all.
21 For me it is frustrating. I have at low latency patched kernel for audio
22 work, and another when I am not making music. It would be nice if I
23 didn't need to reemerge alsa-drivers, when switching between those
24 kernels.
