Re: /dev/dsp revisited
Are you starting the oss compatability layer?
awind@digit-safe:~$ grep oss /etc/alsa/alsa-base.conf
I compiled from source bec my soundcard is not detected in alsaconf...so I
am unable to use that command
I do not have /proc/sound and have alsa working fine... did you mean
the directory /proc/asound?
cat proc/asound/sndstat produces:
bash-2.04$ cat /proc/asound/sndstat
Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v0.5.10b emulation code)
Kernel: Linux sup3r 2.4.2 #16 Mon Apr 2 09:38:01 UTC 2001 i586
Config options: 0
Type 10: ALSA emulation
Sound Blaster 16 at 0x220, irq 10, dma 1&5
Audio devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
1: MPU-401 (UART)
7: system timer
Mixers: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
it says not enabled in config but I am unsure of how to enable
it...faq,install or rtfm'ng doesn't give any info on that...maybe that is
where my problems lie?
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
I do not have the directory /devfs/perms under /etc...do I just create that
manually and add those entries?
