Detailed package descriptions

alsa-driver

alsa-driver contains the ALSA components that run in kernel space (e.g. all the modules). It also contains a few user-space components, including the alsasound startup script and a set of ALSA headers.

This package is now obsolete, as kernel.org is now taking updates to the modules directly from the ALSA GIT server.

alsa-lib

alsa-lib contains the user space library that developers compile ALSA applications against.

alsa-utils

alsa-utils contains various generic ALSA command line tools, such as amixer, aplay, alsaconf, etc.

alsa-tools

alsa-tools contains various more obscure tools and loaders.

alsa-firmware

alsa-firmware contains binary drivers for various third-party products.

alsa-plugins

alsa-plugins contains plugins for various ALSA needs (e.g. Jack).

alsa-oss

alsa-oss contains the OSS compatibilty layer.

pyalsa

pyalsa contains the Python bindings for ALSA

.bz2 extension handling

The .bz2 extension belongs to the bzip2 compression utility which replaces gzip. You may unpack the .tar.bz2 files directly using one of the following commands:

        using the newer version of tar:
tar -xjf <file>

        or, using the older version of tar:
tar -xIf <file>

        or, with all versions of tar:
bunzip2 -c <file> | tar -xf -
