18 It's not needed. It's also not needed when building sound drivers as
19 modules. AFAIK, ALSA_CARDS serves no purpose anymore, since it was used
20 to control the drivers that were built by the alsa-driver ebuild. The
21 alsa-driver package has been removed from portage.
23 You can simply delete ALSA_CARDS from make.conf.
