When you use ALSA (recommended nowadays) you want to load snd-pcm-oss & snd-mixer-oss for OSS-emulation, this way ALSA can be used with applications that doesn't support ALSA natively. > The problem is that when I run apps such as mpeg123, mplayer or totem > sound works well but when I run xmms or beep-media-palyer it doesn't. Make sure you have selected the right output plugin for xmms, for beep-media-player the mentioned OSS-emulation should work. > Also, when i try to access gnome-volume-control an error message says > that there are no mixer devices or elements (more or less, I'm > trasnlating the error from spanish). > > I've triied installing some libraries (Xmms complained about libmikmod) > but I can't get the sound working whenever I want.
