The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) provides audio and
MIDI functionality to the Linux operating system. ALSA has the
following significant features:
1. Efficient support for all types of audio interfaces from
consumer soundcards to professional multichannel audio
2. Fully modularized sound drivers.
3. SMP and thread-safe design.
4. User space library (alsa-lib) to simplify application
programming and provide higher level functionality.
5. Support for the older OSS API providing binary compatibility
for most OSS programs.

Current: 2008/05/22 - Fixed module permissions and added check for /var/tmp
in the setup script to support DSL 4.x.
