Did you check all of your active mixers? Both ALSA's and your GUI's? Maybe even OSS's, if that even has a mixer?

I feel your pain on the sound thing. I recompiled my kernel to better suit my machine, and went for about two days without sound trying to figure out what was wrong, I eventually realized I needed to reinstall ALSA. On the plus side, my sound actually works better now than it did before.

Your friends are using Windows 98? Ack! You need to save those poor souls.

no sound as user

Ok so slack9.1 doesn't give users sound permissions to dsp do I just chmod 751 or 777 or similar to the dsp location to give the normal users sound? Because I'm not getting sound as normal user

I don't know what's up with that. The drivers worked fine for me without having to change the permissions and I'm using the same version. At any rate, I think it's
chmod 666 /dev/dsp*
chmod 666 /dev/mixer*

Hope that helped.

ok all....now heres a new question for u.....I have installed and started using GTK+Gnutella. I love it . It's absolutely fabulous. But when i first started using it, I got every song I wanted. Now I cant get anything. It tells me that it's waiting, but it's been waiting for like 3 days now. So can anyone give me any hints or maybe Im missing something?

much love,
nikki
