Have you checked the permissions on /dev/dsp*, dev/sequencer*, dev/mixer*, /dev/midi* and /dev/audio*?

If yours is like mine, the sound card, then you may be better off getting the Alsa sound drivers. Because I went months trying to get sound using the regular drivers and never got sound to work.

Alsa did it for me!

What would the permissions have to do with the sound not playing? I did check the volume and the mute, someone directed me to that section though.

If a user dosn't have permission to the device then the user can't use the device.

a dumb question on checking permissions?

Well, I can get to xterm, and i can navigate to the directory, but how do i check the permissions on a file? the ls command will list it, but not the properties of it.....


I know, another dumb question.

"ls -l" is the command your looking for, the '-l' is for 'long'
Code:
bern@grendel bern$ ls -l /dev/dsp*
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 Oct  3 02:17 /dev/dsp -> /dev/dsp0
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root      14,   3 Oct  3 02:17 /dev/dsp0
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root      14,  19 Oct  3 02:17 /dev/dsp1
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root      14,  35 Oct  3 02:17 /dev/dsp2
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root      14,  51 Oct  3 02:17 /dev/dsp3

Your welcome. Do "man ls" for all the options available for ls.
