Unhappy alsa problem on FC5 and FC4 - alsaconf is missing

Hi All,

I have a strange issue with FC5 and FC4, more exactly with alsa on FC5. I do not have alsaconf, I just cannot find it.

This is what i have:
hardware: IBM Tinkpad T30 - Intel chipset and an HP Vectra - Intel chipset. I have the same problem on both machines.

software: FC5 on the laptop and FC4 on the desktop.

alsa packages:
[root@darkstar ionutz]# rpm -qa | grep alsa
alsa-lib-devel-1.0.11-4.rc2
alsa-lib-1.0.11-4.rc2
alsa-utils-1.0.11-4.rc2
[root@darkstar ionutz]#

kernel:
[root@darkstar ionutz]# uname -r
2.6.18-1.2200.fc5
[root@darkstar ionutz]#

this is what I can find with locate:
[root@darkstar ionutz]# locate alsaconf
/usr/share/locale/ja/LC_MESSAGES/alsaconf.mo
/usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/alsaconf.mo
/usr/share/man/fr/man8/alsaconf.8.gz
[root@darkstar ionutz]#

Alsa commands:
[root@darkstar ionutz]# alsa
alsacard alsactl alsalisp alsamixer alsaunmute
[root@darkstar ionutz]# alsa


What I read until now: It seems that on this version of kernel alsa is integrated in the kernel. Does this mean that there is no more alsaconf I've read somewhere on this forum that someone had problems with alsa and removed a line from /etc/modprobe.conf, he/she rebooted and worked. I found this line: "remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/" in my /etc/modprobe.conf. This line is simmilar to the line mentioned on the post. I removed it and restarted and KDE gave me an error that it cannot open /dev/dsp and will use null.

Currentlly I have sound on both machines but I have some frustrating problems like turning the volume all the way down and I still hear music or balance is not working ok.

Is there a real solution for this problem?

Thanks.

Looks like alsaconf is still in the source for alsa-utils. It must have been left out of FC5
by mistake. If it had been deliberate, then they would have replaced it with a script that
tells you to use system-config-soundcard instead. Nobody is that dumb as to just remove a
valuable, documented script without putting something in the release notes or the manuals.

Anyway, for those who have run into this, try system-config-soundcard.
