Re: msysterious /dev/dsp & /dev/audio

i'd try doing ./MAKEDEV audio over again. why not. also, which user are you
trying to play sounds as? unless of course it's root, is the user in the
sound "group"? in your dmesg are there any errors about the sound init? how
about in the messages log? sounds like maybe your user isnt authorized to
access the devices... if they're there, i  don't see how bash could say
they're not unless they're unseeable to that particular user because of
permissions or something.

add|t|on, slaythe@innocent.com

help, I got sucked into /dev/null
