The alsa-info.sh runs on my f7 machine. I ran this as root. But when I tried 
this on the : Please re-run it.f8 machine I get the following error:
rep: /tmp/alsa-info.sh : No such file or directory.
cp: can't stat '/tmp/alsa-info.sh : no such file or directory
Newer version detected:

Alsa-Info script has been updated. Please rerun it.

When I rerun it the same thing occurs. What have I missed?

Also on the f7 machine it  runs in a GUI window. But not on f8.

Cheer Up! Things are getting worse at a slower rate.
