I am also having trouble with sound ... besides being disappointed that 
the older Stormix automatically detected and installed drivers for my 
HP OmniBook 4100 sound chip and the newer Progeny ... even after
a huge upgrade ... fails to do so ... I am also disappointed that it 
fails to automatically install a generic mixer ... obviously I am not
understand something.

Anyhow, a new and different challenge this afternoon along the way 
to fixing the sound problem.

Tried to run:
/etc/modules.conf
/dev/dsp
/dev/mixer ls -al
/proc/interrupts
/proc/ioports
/proc/sound
/dev/sndstat

In every case I got "permission denied" ... and I am running as ROOT!

What's broken now, please?

Thanks!  Doc
