alsa-tools includes card-specific tools for various soundcards,
including firmware loaders for pcmcia and USB devices.
This package includes the firmware as well as the loaders (so there's
no need for a separate alsa-firmware package like Debian has).
This build includes udev rules for the Tascam US-122, US-224, and US-428
USB audio interfaces (which replace the old hotplug scripts shipped
with the alsa-tools source). Also included is the SlackBuild author's
"tascam-us122-HOWTO" document (see /usr/doc/alsa-tools-$VERSION).

(Older versions included the tools "ac3dec" and "extract_ac3", which
were removed from 1.0.27, probably for legal reasons)
Tools marked with an * are GUI tools that require X. To build on an X-less
system, set GUI=no in the environment.
qt3 - only used for qlo10k1 tool (used for loading patches into emu10k1
cards with a hardware MIDI synth). This tool won't be built, if
qt3 is not installed (or QT3=no or GUI=no is set in the environment).
fltk - only used for the hdspconf and hdspmixer tools (only useful for
Hammerfall HDSP cards). This tool won't be built, if fltk is not
installed (or FLTK=no or GUI=no is set in the environment).
