BLFS - alsa - 2.6.5 kernel - no sound
 
I've finished LFS 5.0, and had a blast doing it!

I'm working my way through BLFS in hopes of one day getting rid of host distro entirely.

One problem. I upgraded to the 2.6.5 kernel, and everything works great except my sound (snd_intel8x0). Can't play mp3's in Xmms, and no sound in Xine. All of the modules loaded correctly:

I unmuted the sound channels using alsamixer. I know the card works, 'cause it works in Debian.

What else can I check?

TIA

It may seem obvious but it's the only thing I can think of, did you change the permissions on /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer so that an ordinary user can use them?
chmod a+rw /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/sequencer /dev/midi

I had already chown'ed them to root:audio and made sure that I am a member of the audio group. I went ahead and did a chmod a+rw on all of those items. All of those are just links, I'm going to try chmod on the actual devices and see if that works. Changing the links didn't make a difference.

Thanks for the quick response, though.
