But there are no alsa commands and aptitude lists alsa-base and alsa-util as
uninstalled. This has been working fine without it up until now. While, as
I've said, it could be hardware, isn't it a bit of a puzzle that Alsa isn't
installed? I used the Sarge Net-Install and did not use any extra package
groups like "Desktop" and only installed a few packages later, like ssh,
rsync, and a few other utils that help on a server. Since then I installed
flac, crip, cdcd, and aumix and have been using it to rip CDs to flac. Alsa
was not installed as a dependent package for any of them.
Is it me, or is it a bit odd it's working with the drivers but no Alsa?
