I just installed Slackware 9 ( 2.4.20 ) and after logging in I get that error message. Couldn't open mixer device /dev/sound/mixer. Everything works fine except for the sound. This is the sound card I have.
I tried to manually load the i810_audio module with both modprobe and insmod but this is the message I get:
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod i810_audio failed
When I lsmod I get these modules currently loaded

I could easily get rid of the actual error by removing the volume control of the panel but I still would get no sound.
Hopefully someone will be able to help me or point me to the proper place to fix this. I'm not against recompiling if it will fix this issue.
Thank you in advance for any help with this. I greatly appreciate it.
