Let's discuss the direction of the Linux page; how it should be organized and updated, etc.

Many bits of interesting info have been removed, because they aren't directly relevant to using gimli's loader method.


Christian:

My ATV is set up w/ gentoo. Alsa is installed, but the volume is extremely low, almost no sound at all. I tried compiling ALSA as part of the kernel or modules, I tried loading the ALSA modules w/ the four or five options for the ALC882 given at the alsa-project.org website - nothing.

If anyone has succeeded w/ sound on our little box - please tell everyone how, maybe post your kernel .config? Thanks...
