Compiled kernel kills Real Player


OK, you kernel hackers. Come to my rescue. For fun I compiled the 2.6.12 kernel from kernel.org.

Sound works fine in XMMS and Kaffeine and mplayer. But it does not work in Real Player. I get a message saying it can't open the device as it is in use.

No problem with the Mepis stock 2.6.10 kernel.

Did I miss a config parm? Or did Mepis patch the 2.6.10? Anyone have any idea at all why Real Player won't work when using 'my' kernel?

Thank,

Al

That might be it. I thought that I had both OSS and ALSA in the kernel but maybe I didn't. No big deal.

I could be having a similar problem... when I recompiled my 2.6.10 kernel (just for kicks), I now get NO sound, and this error when I boot up:
Code:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
which is odd since I really didn't change any of the sound features while doing xconfig

what's wrong?

I operated from the defaults initially (at least, the ones that xconfig started with), I was unaware that alsa/oss were not built in.

thank you, I'll get to work on that
