sorry... i didnt fill you in on all this....
somehow it seemed to work last night without removing anything so i was
trying to reproduce it...
however... i think if im gonna go with tarballs, which is easier for me
to understand, then ive gotta figure out some way of removing *all* of
the alsa libs from mandrake.... otherwise there are thousands of apps
that complain when i try to do rpm -e libalsa2 for example....
hmm... it might be worth me tryig the second option....
in which case i'd need to update kernel and get latest rpms from
mandrake cooker?... and thats all i need to do?...
then just modprobe as usual?.... scuse obvious questions but i havent
done alsa from rpms before ;-)...
are you running your mandrake builds for ECMC from rpms or tarballs?...
im in the process of downloading your turnkey audio, it looks really
good and i'd like to run it as its built for mdk 9.0 - its probably a
good idea if i work on the same system as yours....
one thing i do need to sort out is devfs because i cant run my modem (a
winmodem, grrrr!) without it...
bw & thanx
