Re: alsa problems
I believe you may not have created the device files for also. There is
some script, named snddevices I believe, that must be run by the root
user to create the necessary device files. You should be able to find
it in the source that you compiled alsa-driver from.
That would be my first suspicion due to the "No such file or directory"
error message shown below.
