posted this question some time back... am back at it again...
well i can't seem to get sound on my slack box started... it's still a big question mark...
say i create a group called "hear"
i add my username to the end of the /etc/group file where "hear" is located.
then i change the group ownership of /dev/dsp, /dev/dsp1, /dev/audio and /dev/audio1 to "hear"...
why wouldn't this work?
xmms gives me this error:
*** WARNING ***: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): No such device
(a question that is perhaps related??? -> does the default install of slack detect my sound card or do i have to recompile the kernel to get it working?)
would appreciate help.
