Are you getting any permissions errors? You may need to run
Code:
chmod 666 /dev/dsp
chmod 666 /dev/mixer
That may be a red herring but might also be worth checking -- J.W.

You downloaded and installed all of the files? Strange, I have literally just now done that and it works perfectly - what errors are you now getting?

Can you post your modules.conf file?

Mine, for example, reads:
Code:
# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF verion 1.0.5 ---
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0

        # ALSA portion
        alias char-major-116 snd
        alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
	# modul
        # OSS/Free portion
        alias char-e options should go here

        # OSS/Free portion
        alias char-major-14 soundcore
        alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
	
	# card #1
	alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
	alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
	alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
	alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
	alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss



# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---

alias char-major-10-181 toshiba

Here is a suggestion: backup your existing modules.conf file to say modules.conf.backup (so you don't lose it). Then overwrite the Alsaconf section with my Alsaconf section. See if that works. If not, restore your backed up version and you won't have lost anything.

To be honest, I have not really delved too deeply - either a) it works as soon as it's installed, or b) it works after a reboot.

It's on my (very long) to do list .....

Since the sound install affects the kernel (going out on a limb here), I believe we are patching the kernel, a reboot makes sense - normally, we would only need to reboot after either installing new hadware or making amendments to the kernel (update, patch, remove something, etc). Does that sound as though it makes sense?
