What I posted will only work with certain Intel device drivers.
How about doing a script with:
If this returns with
" cat: /proc/asound/card: No such file or directory "
then alsa isn't installed.
If it returns with anything else, then alsa is installed.
So you can just trap for the quoted text as your test for whether or
not alsa is installed.
Would that work?
