Subject: libasound2-plugins-equal: Please install ALSA plugin in the multiarch directory
Date: Thu, 21 Jul 2011 17:55:47 +0200
Package: libasound2-plugin-equal
Version: 0.6-1
Severity: important


alsa-lib will imminently switch to Multiarch, and plugins will move from
/usr/lib/alsa-lib to /usr/lib/<triplet>/alsa-lib, which means alsaequal
will be unusable as soon as this happens.

As alsaequal uses a static makefile, I guess the easiest way to do this
will be to just move the generated plugin to the correct location after
the makefile installs it to the old /usr/lib/alsa-lib dir, overriding the
install rule.

See for details.

A NMU will follow a few days after the upload of alsa-lib to ensure the
new alsa-lib can transition to testing soon enough so it does not disrupt
current transitions.
