After seeing your previous post, I'm not sure I *want* alsa installed.
I'd rather not be the one to find out whether it does the same thing on
a G4. :)
Thanks for any help you can offer though.
What's the lsmod output looks like? Do you have ALSA installed? I've
been going to the whole mambo of mucking around with sound last night
(see previous post), so maybe I can help.

I've just installed woody new-powermac on my G4, and most things are

Upon login to KDE, I was told that permission had been denied for
/dev/dsp. I happily ignored it for the time being, and installed
fluxbox, since I don't really care for KDE or Gnome. After I'd been
using it for a while, it occurred to me that sound wasn't working
here either. So I tried running xmms, and got the following error
libmikmod.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
I don't know whether that's related. But when I tried to play
something, I got a message similar to the one KDE had given:
** WARNING **: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp):
...so I checked permissions:
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 3 Mar 14 02:11 /dev/dsp
...added myself to group audio, tried playing in xmms again, and got
the same error. So just for fun, I changed the permissions to
crw-rw-rw- 1 root audio 14, 3 Mar 14 02:11 /dev/dsp
...and tried playing in xmms again. This time I got a new error:
** WARNING **: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): No
I don't know where to go from here. Can someone help please?
