symbolic link: /dev/sound to /proc/asound/dev
 
I've seen this posted several times, but I have not been able to identify the answer. I'm currently trying to install ALSA and configure the drivers. I've run ./snddevices and at the end of the script receive the notice that a symbolic link has been created. Only one problem...there is no /proc/asound/dev directory on my machine. (RH7.2)

Can someone explain how I can get pas this step? Do I need to create a /proc/asound/dev directory?

Thanks for the help!

why is this a problem? It's a symbolic link to nowhere so obviously it has no use. What exactly is happening or isn't happening that needs to be fixed with your current setup?

When install ALSA, it states to run ./snddevices to continue configuring the driver. The step indicates that there should be a link from /dev/snd to /proc/asound/dev .. on my machine (rh7.2) there is no /proc/asound/dev .. therefore, i'm not able to complete the installation of the ALSA drivers. :(

make more sense?

well there is a chance that your setup is already suppost to have the directory with files in it that ALSA needs, but then again there is a chance that the directory is simply needed to install files in. You might as well try making the directory and see if everything installs properly. It never hurts to try. If it doesn't work you can try to find out what is missing and go from there.
