I'm almost sure that the sndconfig command is there, it's just not in your path. Look for it on /sbin or /usr/sbin. If it's not there, try Code: find / ...

    Code:
    find / sndconfig
    It'll take a while, but eventually it'll spit out the answer. After you find it, execute it by running the command with the absolute path name as root. For example, if it's in /usr/local/sbin, as root, type /usr/local/sbin/sndconfig

    The computer sounded like it was doing a lot of thinking with just the desktop screen. After a while it stopped thinking, and still only the desktop screen. I tried to do it thourgh the file menu and "find files", but it did not indicate anything. I do not understand how come this did not download. Is it possible to get it elsewhere?

    Okay. Fire up Konsole. That should bring you to a DOS like prompt. Type su. This is the command to gain root user privilage in Linux. You'll be prompted for your password. As root type find / sndconfig

    From the Konsole:

    find: sndconfig: No such file or directory

    That really stinks. I am not sure as to why not the file did not load during the install. The Konsole find command worked great. I need to learn the root commands. Any other options? Is it something I can get from elsewhere or from the ISO disk #1 that I was prompted to enter during the install? I appreciate your time.

    You missed the forward slash (/) find / sndconfig

    good eye with that, but it comes back as a directory???

    bash: /: is a directory
    [thomas@user-12hc0nr thomas]$

    Okay...

    Step one: become root
    Step two: enter the entire command at the prompt "find / sndconfig"
    Code:
    [thomas@user-12hc0nr thomas]$su
    password:
    [thomas@user-12hc0nr thomas]#find / sndconfig
    Notice after you become root, $ changes to #. Also notice I didn't use quotes.

    The find command take two arguements. The first one is the directory to start searching in and the second is the search string. find, starting in the top most directory the string sndconfig is 'find / sndconfig' without the quotes.

    Hope that helps,

    I have the pound # sign now, so I am the root, and the search is running.

    this is what i got:

    find: sndconfig: No such file or directory

    I used the backslash and no quotes. I suspect it is not there. For whatever reason the backslash is not present when it indicates the result.
