I'm using Mandrake 9.1. This is the message I get while in the KDE Sound System Control Module (using default settings and pressing Test):
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue using the null output device.
If I try to open the Alsa Mixer gui, I get this:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device.
What do I need to do so I can restore my sound? Do I need Alsa...if so, how can I get the service started (it's stopped and I can't get it to start).
If you need more info please ask.
