Very Stupid Alsa Question.

I have a very stupid question about the alsa slackware package. When i say alsa package i mean alsa-driver-1.07. I exctracted it and discovered that it places the modules in /lib/modules/2.4.28. I was wondering if this changes depending on which kernel you are using or have installed or if it always places the modules in /lib/modules/2.4.28.

The latest alsa package will reflect the latest kernel package.

When the kernel package gets an update... so does alsa.

slackMeUp is correct. It always places the files in /lib/modules/2.4.28. Each alsa-driver package is correct only for one specific kernel version.
