Alsa


Anyone know where I can get the "tgz" version of ALSA? The link @http://www.audioslack.com doesn't work. Thanks!

Download the source tar.gz from http://www.alsa-project.org/.

For instructions on compiling from source, search the forums, its been discussed ad nauseum. But basically:

tar -xvzf foo.tar.gz (-xvjf for tar.bz2)
cd foo
./configure
make
su
[enter root password]
make install

Why in the world wouldn't Slackware 9.0 have my sound working, when I can boot up Slackware Live-CD and it works fine? I'm sooo confused, Linux is very "command" oriented. Also, is there anywhere I can go and just print out a bunch of commands that deal with certain file types? Or a book I can purchase? thanks!

Also, I'm looking for the "source" to download, and I'm not finding it? What is the file name?

The source is here: ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/drive...-0.9.6.tar.bz2


You seem very new to Linux, I dont think Slackware was the best choice for you.

Maybe you should try Mandrake.
