    its in a package called alsa-utils which can be found here
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    On Mandriva, you can simply do
    Code:
    #urpmi alsa-utils
    The package will be installed from your installation discs or from online repos (if you configured any). You can also use the graphical software installer.

    Grr!

    Thanks. It does indeed tell me that it's already installed, but I can't get it to run for some reason. I get an unknown command error.

    I bet you are tyring to run it as a normal user instead of root or you have switched to root using "su" instead of "su -".

    I have tried it both ways, and have even tried it logging in as root. Nada.

    I put alsaconf + mandriva through google and it appears that alsaconf is a separate rpm from alsa-utils.

    Here are the search results: http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=...e+Search&meta=

    Yeah, I'm still having no joy on finding this. I found a couple of places that claimed to have it, but I couldn't connect to the FTP servers, or the files were corrupted, or . . .

    *UGH!*

    Try searching rpm.pbone.net for an rpm that matches your version of alsa.
