What can I do to fix this problem ?
Is something wrong with ALSA ?
When I do "man ALSA" there is no alsa.

Hi,

Quote:
excerpt from 'man alsaconf';
NAME
alsaconf - configuration tool for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture

SYNOPSIS
alsaconf [options]

DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the alsaconf command.

Alsaconf is a simple shell script which tries to detect the sound cards on your system and writes a suitable configuration file for
ALSA. It will try to guess what GNU/Linux distribution you're running, and will act accordingly to the standards of that distribution,
if specific support is available.

Alsaconf will write a module-init-tools (or modutils) snippet which can be then used by module-init-tools (or modutils) to load the cor-
rect parameters for your sound card.

NAME
alsamixer - soundcard mixer for ALSA soundcard driver, with ncurses interface

SYNOPSIS
alsamixer [options]

DESCRIPTION
alsamixer is an ncurses mixer program for use with the ALSA soundcard drivers. It supports multiple soundcards with multiple devices.
Setup 'alsa' for your system via 'alsaconf' then set the mixer settings with 'alsamixer'.

You can save the mixer settings with 'alsactl store';

NAME
alsactl - advanced controls for ALSA soundcard driver

SYNOPSIS
alsactl [options] [store|restore|init] <card # or id or device>

DESCRIPTION
alsactl is used to control advanced settings for the ALSA soundcard drivers. It supports multiple soundcards. If your card has features
that you can't seem to control from a mixer application, you have come to the right place.
HTH!

Slack 13 Jack Control fails

Thank you OneBuck. After running alsaconf and setting it to ICE1712 my
initial problem is solved. Jack Control starts.
So I'm going to mark this one as solved and asked a different question.
Thank you !
