Question FC5: When will a kernel upgrade include alsa version 1.0.11?

Should I just wait for a kernel upgrade that incorporates the alsa bug fix I need, or am I lost until I do something different?

I'm using kernel 2.6.16-1.2122 and have no sound from my shuttle sd11g5. Alsa fixed bug #1600 (specifically for the sd11g5), but when will it be available from a Fedora repository?

From the alsa website: ----------------------------------->

Changelog between 1.0.10 and 1.0.11 releases

+ CA0106 driver
- snd-ca0106: update SPDIF to IEC958 in mixer control names.
- snd-ca0106: Fixed ALSA bug#1600

Shuttle XPC SD11G5 which has an onboard Creative Labs
Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit EAX
high-definition 7.1 audio processor".
Fixes ALSA bug#1600


I've been yummily updating daily, hoping that whatever I needed would eventually show up in one of the standard repositoires.

My output from yum list alsa* is:

Installed Packages
alsa-lib.i386 1.0.11-3.rc2.2 installed
alsa-utils.i386 1.0.11-4.rc2 installed
Available Packages
alsa-lib-devel.i386 1.0.11-3.rc2.2 core
alsa-tools.i386 1.0.10-2.fc5 extras
alsa-utils-debuginfo.i386 1.0.11-4.rc2 updates
alsamixergui.i386 0.9.0-0.2.rc1.fc5 extras

My technique for testing my soundcard is to use soundcard detection from gnome. It lists the CA0106 device, but when I ask it to play the sample sound -- no dice.

The scsound.log includes:

------- version --------
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.11rc2 (Wed Jan 04 08:57:20 2006 UTC).

------- rpm -q alsa-lib --------

------- rpm -q alsa-utils --------

------- modules --------
0 snd_ca0106

The alsa-lib-1.0.11-2.src.rpm alsa-lib spec file has a really stupid error in it;

%files devel
%defattr(-, root, root)
%doc doc/doxygen
%exclude %{_libdir}/

This makes no sense, since for example, if one was to build the kdelibs-3.5.X source rpm it will fail due to the missing /usr/lib[64]/ file. The fix is to simply remove the '%exclude ' portion (notice the space).
