amixer error


I get this error on amixer, what does it mean?

Code:
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such File or directory
I am using gentoo 2004.3, I have emerged alsa utils and alsa driver is built in to my kernel (module).

Is there something I am doing wrong? (stupid question)

Talking

So, we both know the conclusion to this one?!

No ALSA installed. and if it is then simple remove and install again would not hurt.
You do not get any response anyway

here is another way of thinking:

Configure ALSA.

alsaconf

and, BLAM, everything just worked. Sure, it doesn't work for anyone but root, but that is easy enough to fix. Type:

chmod 666 /dev/dsp*
chmod 666 /dev/mixer*
