problems with alsa for my creative soundcard


I did this for alsa-driver & alsa-lib:

./configure, make; make install

buut when i do alsa-utils it says:::

root@localhost alsa-utils]# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking dependency style of gcc... gcc3
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether ln -s works... yes
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for alsa >= 0.9.0... Package alsa was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `alsa.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'alsa' found

configure: error: Library requirements (alsa >= 0.9.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
[root@localhost alsa-utils]#

So fix your PKG_CONFIG_PATH . If you did just ./configure without any options then alsa-lib will install in /usr/local/lib and so alsa.pc will be in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig
and then try again
make install
