try installing the rpm with the --force option
rpm -ivh --force alsa-whatever
See if it still says that alsa-whatever is not installed when you do
rpm -q alsa-whatever.

my guess is that the order is
alsa-driver
alsa-lib
alsa-utils
alsa-xmms (if you want it)
alsaplayer (if you want it)

You probably have to configure the soundcard to use the alsa driver (I'm sure there is tool for this in rh9) and then reboot.

To query the RPM database, use the following syntax:
Code:
rpm -qa | grep alsa
This will output a list of RPMs containing the word alsa.

To remove a RPM, do not include the .i386.rpm portion.
The syntax should look like this:
Code:
rpm -e alsa-driver-0.9.2-fr2

I have a similar problem with .rpm's installed
I loaded them from a my local directory as root
and now they reside there
when I try to install i get the same
"already installed" message
and when I try to remove I get the
"is not installed" message
