Re: /dev/dsp revisited



Hi John,

I am running Linux 2.4.2 + (devfsd 1.3.11), alsa-modules 0.5.10b-6
which might be somewhat different than what you have.

awind@digit-safe:~$ grep oss /etc/alsa/alsa-base.conf

I do not have /proc/sound and have alsa working fine... did you mean
the directory /proc/asound?

I also had to add these two lines to /etc/devfs/perms to fix
permission problems with devfs:

REGISTER sound/.* PERMISSIONS root.audio 660
REGISTER snd/.* PERMISSIONS root.audio 660
