i've installed mandrake 9.1 recently. my audio chip is SiS 7012. it recognizes it. but at the start boot time a meesage comes "error in initialiazing or opening port /dev/dsp". what does it mean. i don't know.
after then i play an mp3 file on XMMS it shows all the graphics and behaves normal. it seems it is playing the song normally, but no sound is there. please help me. thanks.
i use $mknod /dev/dsp c 14 3 and the file created.
but when i change the permissions to 777 from root but still the sound doesn't come. after logout and log into other user it shows the file attrib as old rw-------.
it seems the permissions 777 don't work after logout.
thanks of all, i got the sound working. but with a little problem still there that when i login in any user it works for 1st time but after i logoff and switch to other user it says on login that the /dev/dsp is busy and it doesn't play the song. so i've to restart it to get the sound works. is there any clue ?
