[edit] Detailed package descriptions

[edit] 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.
The old drivers (alsa-driver) are still available.

[edit] alsa-lib

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

[edit] alsa-utils

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

[edit] alsa-tools

alsa-tools contains various more obscure tools and loaders.

[edit] alsa-firmware

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

[edit] alsa-plugins

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

[edit] alsa-oss

alsa-oss contains the OSS compatibilty layer.

[edit] pyalsa

pyalsa contains the Python bindings for ALSA

[edit] .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 -
