ALSA stopped working after kernel panic
I am using Gentoo 2005.0 and when compiling Ghostscript the system had a Kernel panic (known AMD_64 problem) and then upon rebooting ALSA Does not work. Typing alsaconfig does nothing and OSS Drivers do work but for some reason I have to chmod /dev/dsp in order to get them to work. I get an error in XMMS is
Is it possible that during the kernel panic the module got corrupt?
It seems that the problem is with permissions. If I issue a chmod -R 666 /dev/snd then ALSA works fine. Although after every reboot I have to issue this again. Also, the gnome mixer applet still is not working. Any ideas?
after you boot up the alsa modules are loaded ??
and what does
ls -l /dev/snd
say after you boot up and before you do the chmod ?
that's a weird one but there has to be an answer
i can't imagine the modules got corrupted
just no proper shutdown is all
Yes, upon booting up the ALSA Modules do load. I can log in as root and without doing a thing I can get sound output using ALSA drivers.
