where is sndconfig


Hello all.

Recently upgraded to mandrake 9.1 from being away from linux for about 3 months. As usual I didnt get sound with GNOME. So in the past I log into root and use the command 'sndconfig'.

The cmd did not work. I tried to locate the command but could not find it. I was thinking there might be a new way to install ur sound card with mandy 9.

Anyone want to throw some ideas?

No it didnt fix the problem. They must use a different package or something now. I might try d/l snconfig. I also heard that turning plug and plus OS in your BIOS on will fix the problem.
Havent ever tried that yet.

sndconfig is a native RH app. In Mandrake you have other tools, sndconfig can be used, however the tools available to you from Mandrake should suffice.

FYI, Mandrake uses ALSA by default. Sometimes ALSA comes muted by default. You may simply need to unmute your device.

Also, if you have questions specific to your soundcard, you should post up what soundcard you have. If you aren't sure, you should post up:
lspci -vv

Which will show you what soundcard you have.

Cool

HardDrake...

http://doc.mandrakelinux.com/Mandrak...harddrake.html

'ISA PnP devices are not probed for by HardDrake. In order to configure them, run sndconfig on the command line. You will need to install the sndconfig package if needed.'

But, turning PnP OS off in the BIOS means sound is detected and configured automatically on next boot.
