This has been mentioned before. It would be really nice to have clear 
and informative writeups for every distro. Unfortunately I run an almost 
LFS system so I have very little current knowledge of the various 
methods which the multitude of distros use to setup ALSA.

However I will make a very explicit note that we want users to 
contribute guides or links for the howtos available and provide a space 
for them.

If anyone has links now that I can add please send them. (Think: Free 
advertising for your favorite distro).

  Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
