exited from X you can
cat > ~/.xinitrc
gnome-session
control-d
for gnome
or sub kde for gnome-session.
you run a script by typing it's name or
source script
you should probably be root to install alsa

a script is like a .bat file in windows or dos.
if you extract a .tar.gz or .tgz file, well, i guess it doesn't
matter what it is.
you type the full path of the script or be in the directory
with it and ./nameofscript
the konsole would have been fine, you just need the full
pathname for the script ( where it is ).
