Bug Tracking

From AlsaProject
Jump to: navigation, search

The kernel Bugzilla is used for tracking kernel driver bugs. Other ALSA bugs can be reported to the developers via the alsa-devel@alsa-project.org mailing list. Remember to always include the alsa-info.sh output (instructions about alsa-info.sh here).

Kernel driver bugs

The list of open kernel driver bug reports can be seen here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/buglist.cgi?component=Sound%28ALSA%29&product=Drivers

New kernel driver bugs can be reported here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/enter_bug.cgi

When creating a new bug report, select "Drivers" as the product, and then "Sound(ALSA)" as the component.

Other ALSA bugs

If you've found a bug in ALSA that is not a kernel driver bug, subscribe to the alsa-devel@alsa-project.org mailing list and send your bug report to the list via email.

Some things to take account for a smooth experience:

  • HTML emails are silently dropped as spam. Many email applications send mail in HTML format by default, so check the mail sending settings in your email application and change the format to "plain text".
  • Too large emails are seen as potential spam too. They don't get silently dropped, but they go to the moderation queue, and it may take time before such mails are approved. Uncompressed output from alsa-info.sh will exceed the size limit, so compress the alsa-info.sh output before attaching it to your mail (or use the uploading option in alsa-info.sh and just put a link to the uploaded file to your mail).
  • It's possible to send mail to the list also without subscribing, but all mails from unsubscribed addresses go to the moderation queue, so subscribing is highly recommended.
