I'm sort of a nOOb when it comes to using GUI's and sound in Linux...all I've ever done is run web and mail servers with slackware. But now I've decided to do a dual boot with Windoze XP and Slackware. I even got my dual monitors working.
My desktop looks nice, but I still don't have sound, and quite honestly, I have no idea where to start. I looked around the 'net, and searched here, but couldn't find any good explanations of what exactly I should do to get my sound working. I have NO sound: No music, no CD, nothing. When I try and open a .Mp3 with XMMS, I get this error message:
Please check that:
1.) You have the correct output plugin selected
2.) No other program is blocking the soundcard
3.) Your soundcard is configured properly
Now, I know this is probably pretty simple, but I've NEVER had to configure sound in Linux. Sorry in advance if this is really stupid...if you could just point me in the right direction, or give me some help, I'd really appreciate it.
Oh, I almost forgot. My soundcard is a Soundblaster Audigy in my PCI slot, and it works perfect under Windoze. Thanks!
