2013-10-19 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib ( unstable; urgency=low
* Add preinst scripts to -dbg and -dev packages to correctly
transition from symlinked doc directories to real directories
(closes: #716874).

alsa-lib ( unstable; urgency=high
* Team upload.
* Apply patch by Samuel Thibault to fix speech synthesis in the
Debian Installer: without the /usr/share/alsa/pcm directory, one
only gets garbage, so ship that directory in the udeb. Thanks,
Samuel! (closes: #726258)
2013-07-09 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib ( unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Drop fix_return_value_of_snd_pcm_rewind.patch and fix_docs_typo.patch:
applied upstream.
2013-06-28 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib ( unstable; urgency=low
* Add fix_return_value_of_snd_pcm_rewind.patch: this fixes several
problems with plugins, and fixes a Pulseaudio crash.
* Add tests_lm_ftbfs.patch: add -lm where needed, to fix two build
failures in tests (closes: #709900).
2013-05-29 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib ( unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Drop all patches: all merged upstream.
* Add fix_docs_typo.patch: fix typo in constant name (closes: #675960).
* Only install the card data and alsa.conf for the udeb. The smixer and
ucm configuration files are useless in debian-installer.
2013-05-14 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib (1.0.27-4) unstable; urgency=low
[ Jordi Mallach ]
* Add double_dlclose.patch: from Git; avoid a double call of dlclose()
in dlobj caching code.
* inline_headers.patch: from Git; use __inline__ for exported headers.
Fixes builds for packages using C90.
* Add ucm_profiles.patch: from Git; include UCM profiles from Chromebook
and Ubuntu.
* Introduce a new binary libasound2-data, and install all driver
configuration files and UCM profiles there.
[ Cyril Brulebois ]
* Fix dh_makeshlibs call:
- Reintroduce --add-udeb=libasound2-udeb (broken dependencies for debs
otherwise: #708353 for alsa-utils-udeb).
- Restore -V'libasound2 (>= 1.0.27)' as well, since symbols files don't
work for udebs. Regular debs will keep on picking the most relaxed
dependency, as usual. Closes: #708357.
2013-05-09 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib (1.0.27-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Brown paper bag: use override_dh_auto_build-indep and
dh_auto_install-indep to handle doxygen docs, to correctly avoid
building docs on binary-arch-only builds. Thanks to Adam Conrad
for the suggestion.
* Pass --disable-static to configure.
2013-05-09 - Jordi Mallach <>
alsa-lib (1.0.27-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Upload to unstable.
* Move doxygen to Build-Depends-Indep (closes: #706800).
