snd-emu10k1 loaded but no sound


I'm using mandrkae 10.1 and a SBlaster Live!

Souncard is recognized and intalled, sound module loaded (snd-emu10k1) but still get no sound.

tried raising the volume with Kmix but the mixer detects nothing...

tried alsaconf and all went well (even congratulated me on the success and told me to have a lot of fun!)

When i boot into KDE i get this message:
Sound server
Error while initializing driver
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (no such file or directory)

I've managed to get it working in the past but have no idea how.... Need help!

At root command prompt(init 3), type setup or Drakconf.. I forget what they use now. Configure your sound card. And make sure you disable "mute" becaus eit's muted by default with Mandrake, as I recall.

It's possible that this could be a permissions problem. Check to see that both /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer have at least rw-rw-rw- privs. If not
Code:
chmod 666 /dev/dsp
chmod 666 /dev/mixer
Note that this may not improve the situation, but if nothing else it would at least let you elminate one possible cause. Good luck with it -- J.W.

Did you read my post? I said set the damn thing up first. Type drakconf at command prompt.

And it's not a permission problem, because it doesn't exist. You didn't create it yet.
