Problems with devfs and sound
After a dselect update on 25th March my sound has stopped working
I use devfsd, and this is at the limit of my knowledge but...
Applications tend to access devices like /dev/dsp
in /etc/modutils/1devfsd there are a series of aliases that do
alias /dev/sound sound-slot-0
alias /dev/dsp /dev/sound
and I have added in my own file with (amongst other things)
alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
[this is all propagated into /etc/modules.conf by update-modules]
SO in theory access to /dev/dsp should through the aliases end up accessing
BUT is doesn't - the module doesn't appear to be being loaded.
What is puzzling me is that there is a directory /dev/sound (empy because
emu10k1 is not loaded) and (broken) symlinks from /dev/dsp etc to
Because /dev/sound is a directory it appears that the "alias /dev/sound
sound-slot-0" is not taking effect.
It was working a few days ago, but /etc/modutils/1devfsd has been updated
(timestamp is 25th March) and now it doesn't. Can someone help me understand
what is happening here and how I can make it work again.
