alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
I tried follwing the directions located here for alsa
I am trying to install a
sound blaster live 24bit card
kernel version 2.6.8-2-386
I followed the directions meticulously three times
Note: the directions say
"The snddevices script sets the permissions for the
devices it creates to root."
After running the version of this script already
installed in a directory on the computer, I realized
there was a snddevices script in the alsa-driver
They should put this more explicitly in the
I thought the was the problem, but it wasnt
I still get the error
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default:
No such device
I dont know much about setting up sound so am not even
sure where to begin with troubleshooting it.
Can anyone help? I have been at this for a week...In
my humble opinion somthing as simple as sound should
be easier to get working.
One more thing to note: I read one message when I was
doing some google searching that indicated that the
name of the driver might have changed but it was very
vague...sorry cant find the news thread again to put a
link to it here.
Thanks in advance everyone!
