What packages required for sound

Hi hi,

Yesterday, I could run Xine and play movies with audio.

Today, I have video but not audio.

I was fiddling about with pkgtool yesterday, and I suspect I must have accidentally removed something important.

alsamixer: function std_ctl_open failed for default: No such device.

What packages are required for audio to work, without reinstalling Slackware 9.1 from scratch?

What packages required for sound

Go to and click on the soundcards page. Find yours and follow the instructions. It normally means inserting a few lines in /etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules.

If you've rebulit your kernel you need to remake all the alsa packages to get sound working again also for mine soundcard support needed to be enabled as a module.
