After another round of experimmentation, the situation is the same.
lsmod | grep snd shows the following:
snd_intel8x0 35112 0
snd_ac97_codec 102716 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_ac97_bus 3072 1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm_oss 42656 0
snd_mixer_oss 18048 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 89100 3 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 24200 1 snd_pcm
snd 62976 6
soundcore 10912 1 snd
snd_page_alloc 11536 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
I ran alsaconf and now cat /proc/asound/cards shows one card:
0 [CK804 ]: NFORCE - NVidia CK804
NVidia CK804 with ALC850 at 0xd3103000, irq 17
An ls /dev/dsp shows that dsp is a soft link to dsp0.
ls -la /dev/dsp shows that it is set up correctly:
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 3 2006-07-20 10:01 /dev/dsp0
I don't know if there is some bunfight between KDE and Gnome apps for
devices - but then the KDE devices should work because Kscd plays music
fine. The KDE video players don't give me anything except pictures.
Thanks for all the suggestions. The situation is driving me nuts.
