fedora 3 ....where is alsaconf


I recently changed from core 2 to core 3. I used alsaconf to configure the sound card (on board cs2435) on core 2 with no problems. With core 3 I have used apt-get to install alsa but there appears to be no alsaconf???? Is there another alsa configuration file on core 3???
Any help would be nice.

As far as I know, fedora core 2 and fedora core 3 use the 2.6 kernel. In the 2.6 kernel, alsa is compiled inside the kernel. You don't install it any more. DO you have problem with the sound? Try alsamixer to see if the volumes are muted, or use another mixer, in your GUI (probably gnome)

alsa mixer works but the system doesn't recognise the sound card. All sounds are enabled. somewhat confusing. Previously this accurred with core 2 but after running alsaconf it found the sound card and all worked fine. So I am a bit lost as to the problem. If I run the gnome sound config it claims I have no sound card.

You should have a configure soundcard in the Settings menu in gnome. What type of soundcard do you have?
Do a /sbin/lsmod to see the modules that are running.

alsaconf and the alsasound rc script have never been included with Fedora Core 2 or Fedora Core 3. Only experimental ALSA 3rd party packages may include them. E.g. fedora.us' packages for Fedora Core 1.

You should not need alsaconf.

system-config-soundcard is the tool to use.
