When you use the planet all of these things are included. The kernel is
patched, ALSA is there, all of the apps just download and work. You
*do* need to make sure you get the kernel source but it's there as
well. As I said before, the only apps that I build from scratch are
JACK, Ardour, and JAMin. The only reason I build JAMin from scratch is
because I work on the code. Otherwise, I'd just download it from the
planet as well. Having built everything from scratch before I can tell
you that the planet not only is easier but that it does things the right
