I am trying to install the Planet-CCRMA FC1 but I have not found how to get the alsamixer to run.
So far, I've installed the CCRMA kernel and as I try to start ALSA, I'm getting the following messages:

>[root@192 normand]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound start

My sound card appears to be working since I can listen to my tuner coming-in thru the line-in as well as record it using Rezound.  However, not having access to a mixer makes thing rather difficult (alsamixer, qamix and  HDSPmixer all refuse to start...).

Any pointer would be appreciated.
