Hi. Thought I'd ask this question here, as I consulted this topic to problem solve (it didn't help). Anyway...
I tried to install the alsa-drivers rpm on my computer, which is running RH9. Want to get sound from my SB 16 PCI soundcard.
I used "rpm -i alsa-driver-0.9.7-1.fr.src.rpm"
Linux returned some gobblety-gook about "group dude" and "user dude" not existing.
I checked if things were installed with "rpm -q alsa-drivers" (thanks to this thread). Linux returned that the package 'alsa-drivers' was not installed.
I got the rpm from shrike.freshrpms.net. Did I grab the wrong one, or am I using the 'rpm' command incorrectly?
EDIT: I WAS using the rpm command incorrectly, as this is an src file. Just wanted to follow-up.
Think I know what to do. I'll give it a whirl.
