download those files to your desktop.
right click each one, extract to /xxx.
finally as root
the order for this install is
1.alsa driver pkg.
2.alsa lib pkg.
3.alsa util pkg.
as for the others, I believe if the 1st 3 are installed, there is no specific order required...
I hate to be a noob, but I seem to have a problem with my C compiler.
checking for gcc... no checking for cc... no checking for cl.exe... no configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH See `config.log' for more details.
From Konsole type rpmdrake
Be sure both drop down menus say "all"
in the search box type gcc
then search for "make" and install
the versions don't have to be the same, just try to install the latest version.
Now I have a new problem:
checking for gcc... gcc checking for C compiler default output file name... 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 ISO C89... none needed checking for ranlib... ranlib checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E checking for grep that handles long lines and -e... /bin/grep checking for egrep... /bin/grep -E checking for ANSI C header files... yes checking for an ANSI C-conforming const... yes checking for inline... inline checking whether time.h and sys/time.h may both be included... yes checking whether gcc needs -traditional... no checking for current directory... /home/mord/Desktop/Alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.19 checking cross compile... checking for directory with kernel source... ./configure: line 4820: cd: /usr/src/linux: No such file or directory /usr/src/linux checking for directory with kernel build... checking for kernel linux/version.h... no The file /include/linux/version.h does not exist. Please install the package with full kernel sources for your distribution or use --with-kernel=dir option to specify another directory with kernel sources (default is /usr/src/linux).
on the righ drop down menu select installed
search for kernel
note which "kernel-xx" packages are installed on your sys.
change the drop down to all
find the "kernel-xx-deve"l packages and install.
Also be sure "kernel-headerxx" package is installed
If you get the same error install the corresponding "kernel-sourcexxx" packages....repost if you need more help.
out of curiosity is this an alsa mixer or a hardware issue cause as far as i know when you plug in headphones the physical connection for sound to the speakers is disconnected physically . the question is do you have any other operating systems on your pc do the headphones work there . i have mandriva 2008 and 2009 there is no option for headphone sound but when i plug in headphones speaker sound is automatically disconnected
Definitely not a hardware issue.
As of now, Mandriva is the only operating system on my computer. I used to run Vista, at first by itself, and then in tandem with Mandriva, but it wasn't worth it. Anyway, when using Vista, as soon as I'd plug in the headphones, the speakers would turn off.
ok then have you tried running alsaconf the alsa configuration tool
When I type alsaconf I get command not found

All I know to do is upgrade to the latest ALSA versions, and maybe say a prayer , as I have not seen a definite solution to this posted anywhere. Installing all of the ALSA stuff from the links I posted should eliminate the "command not found" error. Then maybe someone else may be able to help more than I can.
