Two very good questions! When ever possible I'm using Linux as my DAW,
most times when the DAW is borked, the cause isn't something related to
ALSA versions. For example I once upgraded a Debian using GNOME 2
without pulseaudio, it didn't upgrade to a newer version of GNOME 2, but
to GNOME 3 and forced to install pulseaudio. Pro-audio cards don't work
when PA is activated. This is just a relatively unalarming example,
since it's possible to get rid of PA, but there are very grotesque
possibilities for what could happen.

Dunno what's the different between 1.0.25-1 and 1.0.25-2, but it seems
to be possible, that something else is the show-stopper, but ALSA
