RFE: install alsa-utils if sound is detected
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:42:15 EDT
Description of problem:
alsa-utils isnt installed by default. It should be installed , as it
contains alsamixer and other alsa related tools needed to make sound
functional on FC2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2 test 1
alsa-utils isnt installed
alsa-utils should be installed
alsa-utils should be added to bugzilla "component" field...
(it's now installed if you install the 'sound & video' group)
I would consider, because of confusion of alsa drivers initially being
o Have system-config-sound "know" how to edit/set parameters in
o Install alsactl regardless of whether user installs sound & video group.
