My alsa is 1.0.14 but I'm using the 'HG' version of the alsa-drivers and
alsa-kernel packages so that basically gets me the latest-and-greatest
drivers from the source repository if I understand correctly. I saw some
patches coming by in February and they are already in there so I presume I'm
working with the most current source.

I'm intrigued by the asound.conf, is there any specific configuration you
needed to make the aloop device work properly? I'm using the
distro-configured alsa (ubuntu 7.10) and there is no such file somehwere in
/etc. Even on my debian server (running Etch), I can't find it.

Kind regards,
