Or even better, I should really learn how to build this RPM. Can we work
together to go through that? I have all of Saturday morning open.

I looked up your instructions in the archive. They are attached below.
However, when Steve tried this it didn't work for him. I'll try to follow
through this on a machine here in the office today and see where I run into

Please let me know if you think this list was not correct.

Yep, it is pretty much the same...
That is for rebuilding the rpms without changing them in any way (for
example, you want to run the same alsa on top of a different kernel, or
you have rebuilt the kernel).

If you want to change things...
* if what you want to change in already in cvs it's easy:

- install the source rpms for the alsa driver, library, utils and tools
- build a new tarball for the current cvs
  cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/
  [answer the prompt]
- check what is the date of the cvs access which names the tarball
  ls -lt | head
  the file at the top of the listing would be something like:
  alsa-xxxxxxxx.yyyyyy.tar.bz2 where xxxxxxxx.yyyyyy is the date and
  time of the cvs snapshot.
- edit all four spec files (alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-utils,
  alsa-tools) that live in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS, copy them to new files
  that have a different version number, change the version number and
  the cvs_date variable to match the new cvs date, rebuild and reinstall
  as outlined in the web.
