Slack 10, kernel 2.6.7, alsa (1.0.7)


Ok, I had a thread going over here regarding this problem. It all started when I was trying to install Rosegarden.

It doesn't create /dev/sequencer (or /dev/snd/seq, which is what rosegarden needs).

I uninstalled ALSA 1.0.5a in favor of building a new alsa from source. Note that the seq device didn't exist before, either. lsmod returns that dev_snd_seq is compiled as a module, but like I said - it doesn't exist anywhere in /dev. Other sound has always worked.

What does your /etc/modules.conf look like? Does the module load, what does lsmod report?
good luck.

/etc/modules.conf only has one line, for my nvidia drivers.

It appears as if the module is loading? What card is this? Please post the output from /sbin/lspci -v.
good luck.

SB Live Value. I have an nForce mobo with built in sound, too, but I prefer to use the SB Live (better recording and output quality - while the nForce chipset has ASIO, I still prefer the SB Live).

Here is the output of /sbin/lspci -v.

That's cool, however, I felt the scope of the thread had outgrown the software forum, considering this has more to do with hardware. I pointed to the previous thread just to give people a reference to what has already been discussed. Sorry for not following the rules :/
