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.

I'm having some problems getting alsa to work on my iBook. I have compiled and installed alsa-driver-0.9.0rc7 and the relevant alsa packages from woody. After booting the machine the following modules are loaded:

i2c-keywest             7536   0 (autoclean) (unused)
snd-powermac           33204   0
snd-pcm                69024   0 [snd-powermac]
snd-timer              13040   0 [snd-pcm]
snd                    32612   0 [snd-powermac snd-pcm snd-timer]
i2c-core               14568   0 [i2c-keywest snd-powermac]

When I run the mixer I get the following error message:
$ amixer -D -c 0
ALSA lib control.c:588:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL 0
amixer: Mixer attach 0 error: No such file or directory

The version of amixer ist:
$ amixer -v
amixer version 0.9.0beta12

Any suggestions?
