About the Alsa drivers I know I need to run ./cofigure but are there any command line arguments I need to use that I am unaware of? Running Mandrake 10, it says it's running the alsa driver for the soundcard now but I can't find the alsa mixer or anything. Can find the kde mixer which does me no good at all. I was thinking updating to the most recent drivers would give me the Alsa mixer but I have no clue how to proceed from here reading through the install manual now. Like it says this -
You must have full configured source for the Linux kernel which you
want to use for the ALSA drivers. Note that ALSA drivers are part
of the kernel, so there is necessary to resolve all symbol dependencies
between the used kernel and ALSA driver code. Partly installed kernels
(for example from distributor makers) can be unuseable for this action.
2) You must turn on sound support (soundcore module).
I think I have sound support on I have sound now, just can't use my mic, does this mean I can't use these drivers since I'm running Mandrake? Any help or a start point would be great sorry so long winded but N00b=me.
