sound troubles with mandriva 2005LE


I've some troubles with the sound with mandriva 2005LE.
My soud card is an AC' 97 (ALC650) and the alsa driver "snd-intel8x0".

I can read all my Mp3, and i have the KDE sound, etc... But some times the sound is verry "poor" and when I run cedega, I'don't have sond.
So I tried the test (on cedega) and it prints "no acces to /dev/dsp"
Some times, I have the sound but not always.
I cheked the permissions of /dev/dsp but, i think that all is ok.

So, what can i do? :confused:

Yeah, but you're not sure? Set the permission:

chmod 777 /dev/dsp

I set the permissions with "chmod 777" and when I restart the pc, the permissions have been reseted like this: "rw-rw----" and no sound.

But, how can i find the prosses witch have acces to /dev/dsp?

I've found that:

"kill ARTSD"

It's not the best but it's works.

thanks to securehack.

Heh. No problem man. Just glad to see the suggestion worked. Does this happen at every boot? If it does, post, and we can create a boot up script to the do kill procedure everytime without interaction.
