Hi,

There is new alsa-driver which supports SB X-FI.
But in the ebuild there is no USE flag for ctxfi module. I've found at gentoo bugzilla .diff file with that flag. How can I patch an existing 1.0.21 ebuild with that diff file?

1) emerge /usr/portage/media-sound/alsa-driver/the-specific-ebuild unpack
2) go to the /var/tmp/portarge/work/alsa-driver etc.. and patch whichever
of the files you want to patch with command patch -p1 < patch-file
3) then ebuild package-ebuild (like in 1) merge.
OR
copy the alsa-driver directory to a local overlay
put the patch-file in the files directory of the alsa-driver
modify the alsa-driver ebuild to include the patch
digest the ebuild
then emerge

If you're not tied to any specific kernel, you can unmask the 2.6.31 vanilla kernel in the portage tree. X-Fi support is included. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and it works great.
