GENERAL ======= This package contains the firmware binaries for each loader program included in alsa-tools package. The firmware data can be used by each ALSA firmware loader program like vxloader, or passed through the hotplug firmware-loading mechanism. HOTPLUG FIRMWARE LOADER SUPPORT =============================== The recent ALSA driver supports the hotplug firmware loader. As default, the package will install firmware data to the places for both the old ALSA fw loader and the hotplug fw loader. To disable the installation of old ALSA fw loader data (if both ALSA and hotplug fw loaders are available), pass --disable-loader to configure. Similarly, to disable the hotplug fw loader data, pass --disable-hotplug option. For the old ALSA fw loader, specify the same prefix option given to the alsa-tools configure script, too, in order to keep the installation directories consistent. The default directory for hotplug firmware data files is /lib/firmware. (or if existing /lib/hotplug/firmware or /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware are found they are used) You can change to another path via --with-hotplug-dir option. LICENSE AND COPYRIGHT ===================== The files contained in this package is regarded as the example data for each alsa-tools program. Hence, their copyright and license follow basically to the definition of alsa-tools programs. The detailed license and copyright is found in README of each subdirectory.
