I am starting to look at a new codec driver. I have been looking at the
alsa-project wiki describing the various git trees. I am confused
because they seem to be lagging the linux releases (ie 2.6.38 is out,
not in the two trees I have tried.
The wiki proposed occasional developers use 3 trees - not clear what is
in each. ie:
git clone http://git.alsa-project.org/http/alsa-driver.git alsa-driver
git clone http://git.alsa-project.org/http/alsa-kmirror.git alsa-kmirror
if you like do only changes in code in alsa-kmirror, please, use
git clone git://git.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel.git alsa-kernel
I really don't understand the sentence:
"if you like do only changes in code in alsa-kmirror, please, use
When I built alsa-kernel, I kernel version 2.6.38-rc8+ - which built and
boots on my target.
I also cloned the kernel.org broonie/sound-2.6.git tree But when I look
at branches I see:
asoc$ git branch -r
So I checked out origin/for-2.6.39 when i built that I got a kernel
version 2.6.38-rc1 or something. (and it built but didn't boot)
What I need to know is which tree and which branch or tag I should use
to develop on and to submit alsa patches from.
Thanks for the help.
