ALSA driver version

Red Hat 9.0 - new user

How can I find out what ALSA driver version I have installed, if any?
I was trying to configure a program for installation, and it reported that the ALSA sound driver is either not there or too old.

Please help.

Also, is there an easy way to configure a Linux system for using the "line-in" and the "mic" of the sound card? Is there a tutorial on that on the internet?

rpm -qi alsa

If you get no answer then alsa is not installed.

You can get a list of every package that you have installed with:

rpm -qa | sort | less
