In FC 2 I did not have sound after installing and detection of my card
(Audigy-emu10k1) in firstboot,I tried most things - alsamixer,kmix,aumix
Gnome-alsamixer,chmod's on /dev/snd* but nothing worked, I knew alsaconf
was not in the alsa-utils.rpm anymore so I did a cvs alsa-utils from Alsa.org and compiled/installed.Now I have sound and checking my lsmod,
modprobe.conf there is big difference between the new and old setup's.


So I am curious as to why alsaconf was pulled from alsa-utils when it's
possible that sound will work better with it included.

Thanks david


What big differences exactly?   If you can't post a diff, attach what
you've got right now.

alsaconf doesn't know about /etc/modprobe.conf.dist

And it doesn't insert alsactl calls into /etc/modprobe.conf either,
because the ALSA 'alsasound' initscript is expected to do that
(and that one is not needed/used with Fedora Core 2).

The only interesting thing in the alsasound script is, that it attempts
at setting default volume levels.

I have provided a diff of Alsa tests on a before/after installing "alsaconf'.So alsaconf should not be able to work in FC2 Alsa is that
correct,could it be though that people having problems with their sound
might benefit from installing alsaconf regardless.
