alsaconf vs valsaconf
« on: November 01, 2009, 05:07:47 pm »

I've ran alsaconf and valsaconf as a root user in the terminal and they seem identical.  Is there any difference between these two utilities.  I ask this because I've done a tutorial using alsaconf in the example and if there is something a little more Vectorized about valsaconf then I should have included it in the tut?

It's really the same thing.
if you cat /sbin/valsaconf, you can see it's really just a shortcut. It exists there I guess so it can be used with vasm, but it's really just calling alsaconf.
