ubuntu remove alsa
Just playing around with my fresh ubuntu install trying to get sound
working - alsa is supposed to come with it but there is no alsaconf
command - i thought i might just remove the synaptic-detected alsa
packages. i ran: apt-get remove alsa-base alsa-utils and got warned
that removing these would also require removing gdm, ubuntu-base
and ubuntu-desktop also! Even to my dim newbie vision of what's
going on this seems like an awfully dumb way to set up a sound utiliy.
Comments or explanations would be greatly appreciated.
