Greetings :<br><br>i have commited the code for the xml based sound autodetection , ill make some changes because the current code depends on vendor strings instead of hex codes ,so we cannot add vendors to the xml without modification of the source code, ill fix it right away. Im doubtfull of including a fetch routine in the same app to get newer xmls definitions from the update server, because it will add a couple of seconds in the worst case at bootup , i think it would be better to include a crontab for this matter so we keep bootup fast and
soundcards.xml current.<br>So sound detection only needs more testing , but is basically finished , apart from calling it at bootup .is there other topics to work on that are showstoppers or another enhancement ? C code related would be fine. i was thinking backporting some wifi drivers from freebsd 7 to
6.2 but 7 is so close that maybe it would be a waste of time.<br>ill start looking ticket #70 md5dum on cds at install , it should be short , but im interested in looking at wine .but i think we should focus on present problems .
<br>one ticket i cannot understand is ticket #46 improve bootup time , it means at default install only make it fast for a default install right? some sample data for this would be nice.<br><br>Coordially Carlos Neira
