Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): No such device
Hello! When I try to play any sound through a program like xmms, I receive the following message:
** WARNING **: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): No such device
I BELIEVE (but not sure) it is happening since I installed Dropline Gnome (I tried to install FreeRock Gnome first, but not even my firefox was working anymore because of problems in lib files, so I reinstalled my whole system and tried this one)
I tryed to use alsaconf and reconfigure my sound, but it didn't solve the problem.
I compiled my own kernel with not much knowleadge, but I could make audio working until yesterday. The main "system change" that I've made today was to install Dropline Gnome. I tried to run xmms as root, but didn't solve the problem.
Thanks to anyone who tries to help me.
Edit: Oh, btw, there IS a file in /dev/dsp linking to another file: /dev/sound/dsp. I tried to chmod 777 both of them and it also didn't work.
