Re: No audio/mixer device - was (no subject)
Hi my name is stephany for quit a while now i have no sound and it
keeps saying nmo audio device or no active mixer devices i w3nt to the
control panel to install hardware but it wouldn't work any idea's? help!
It sounds like your sound (card/chip) wasn't built into the kernel and
the module for driving it wasn't selected.
Another possibility is that there is another error message: "You do not
have permissions to access /dev/dsp", which means you need to add your
user to the 'audio' group.
Do you know what type of sound card you have, or if it's an onboard
chip, what chipset it is part of? Some newer chipsets are only supported
by "ALSA", and may not have a kernel module available to drive it.
What release of Debian are you using (version # or name like Woody,
Sarge or Sid)?
What kernel are you using? (uname -a)
