Red face Sound using Slackware 9


I'm new to linux. I just installed Slackware 9. But my sound doesn't work. My sound works fine on Lycoris and Slackware Live CD. Is there something I need to download to get it working? I have an integrated sound chip on my MSI mobo. I'm using AC '97. If you can help me, I would appreciate it.


Thanks!

does sound work when you are logged in as root? the /dev/dsp, /dev/mixer files I think by default do not allow all users access to them. If you start xmms as a user it will probably complain about not being able to get access to /dev/dsp.

however if /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer don't exist then you have a sound driver problem.

execute this then give it a try:
chmod a+rw /dev/dsp* /dev/mixer* /dev/sequencer* /dev/midi*

I'm afraid I'm unavailable for ICQ however I'll be on the forum for a little bit longer and probably checking in from time to time over the weekend.

If /dev/dsp exists then your sound drivers appear to be working... however check /var/log/messages and see if anything kicked up at boot time regarding a fail when loading sound drivers.

Also you can try checking at alsa-project.org for help... they have A LOT of chipset specific instructions. You shouldn't have to install anything though.

I didn't see any error. I executed that command, and it didn't seem to do anything. Here is my /var/messages:
