ALSA Mixer & Mandrake9.1 problem.

Alright so I just did a clean install of Mandrake 9.1 and used ALSA for audio. The first time I compiled it , the Mixer worked but XMMS still wouldnt recognize my audio. So I tried to recompile it , now XMMS plays the audio , but I cant access the Mixer to change volume settings so it's muted. I get this when trying to execute the Alsa Mixer :
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
Any ideas how to fix this? I tried to reinstall it a few times , but it keeps giving this error. Also , card is SB Live! Value. So using emu10k1.

I believe your problem comes from not having the oss modules installed, you can get these from: Compile and install those and then edit your modules.conf file to say:

alias char-major-116 snd
options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1
alias snd-card-0 <soundcard>
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
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
post-install <soundcard> /usr/sbin/alsactl restore

That i believe should work.
