I tried again to play a sound with XMMS and Totem player and they both played the song for few seconds and then crashed
So, I installed the drivers form www.intel.com
but I did no help
Just the same happened.
I use KDE control center / Sound system
and I try to use ALSA and then click on the button apply
Here is the message:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (Permission denied)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
I found /dev/dsp - it's owner is root and its group is audio. But also there are same other dsp#(1,2,3...) files.
there is nothing in the folder sound. And I am sure the last time I viewed its content it wasn't empty
there was the original file dsp and int /dev/dsp was only a link.
Then I installed sndconfig
You don't seem to be running a kernel with modular sound
enabled. (soundcore.o was not found in the module search path).
To use sndconfig, you must be running a kernel with modular
sound, such as the kernel shipped with Red Hat Linux or a 2.2
or greater kernel.
So , are there any modules I have to load and how to do it
I just could not understand why is it happening so.
One time I install Mandrake I have sound
The other time I do not have sound.
