Hey, anyone know how restarting alsa works in Fedora Core2 I know how it works in other distros, but this is different somehow. according to sbin/services its not running as a service?

/etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound restart (http://ccrma-mail.stanford.edu/pipermail/planetccrma/2004-May/005014.html)

This does not work on Fedora Core 2, alsasound is simply not present in that directory, I can only find alsactl which only lets me store and restore settings.

that's strange

[ilja@josephine omert]$ locate alsa | grep /etc/

Alsa is implemented as a kernel module, not a service, in FC2. That's one of the reasons why it was such a big change. I entered exactly the same command as ilja and got:

$ locate alsa | grep /etc

For sure rebooting would restart everything but that's no fun, it resets your uptime.
