I recently bought a new computer and installed slackware 12.2 on it. Everything works great, apart from when I launch KDE, I get the error:
error while initializing the sound driver
default can't be opened for playback(no such file or directory)
the sound server will continue, using the null output device.
So the sound doesn't work basically. Now I googled this and it let me to this ArchLinux forum: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=53384
which then led me to download and install alsa: http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page
I installed alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-utils, alsa-oss, using
./configure - make - make install for each
rebooted, no improvement.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this sound card and getting it working on Linux, preferably slackware.
lspci output on it gives:
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV620 Audio device [Radeon HD 34xx Series]
02:00.0 Audio device: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
thank you very much in advance to anyone who answers
