Hello again, Brad.

Now you've really lost me.  "compiled in" to what?  "alsasound" seems to 
be running (although there's no alsa in "ps -efa"), but I don't know 
anything about it beyond that:

[root at dave init.d]# service alsasound status
ALSA sound driver loaded.
[root at dave init.d]#

As far as I remember, I've compiled nothing.  I just used yum to install 
everything on this box, including mythtv.
