/dev/dsp gone?


Hello all. A bit of a sound problem. I updated dropline-gnome last night and when I rebooted I had no sound. Apparently now I have now /dev/dsp either. I am using a 24 bit external Soundblaster and Kernel 2.6.12.1 with Slackware Current. Any ideas on this. Oh, also I did a swaret upgrade as well.

I lost sound and printing when upgrading. Thinking it was devs or udev, I re-upgraded (downgraded I suppose) the following

udev-062-i486-1 --> udev-050-i486-1

devs-2.3.1-noarch-22 --> devs-2.3.1-noarch-21

Sound is back, the printer is not.

Before upgrading I had udev-054-i486-3 and devs-2.3.1-noarch-21, so I stepped back a bit with udev. I just found a mirror that still had the udev-054-i486-3 version of udev (I run "current" and got the files from 10.1), so I will be trying that. I'ld suspect it is either a bug or some new configuration I did not feel like figuring out yet.

From Slackware-current ChangeLog at: ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar.../ChangeLog.txt
Quote:
a/udev-062-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to udev-062.
This seems to be broken with regard to ALSA devices... I'd suggest
anyone using a 2.6 kernel "chmod 644 /etc/rc.d/rc.udev" unless you want
to help locate and report bugs. It's also possible that this has
something to do with the ever-changing syntax used in the udev.rules
config file. If you find any problems that can be attributed to that,
fixes would be appreciated. For now, rc.udev will be off by default.

If you are using udev-054 you shouldn't have to "chmod 644 /etc/rc.d/rc.udev". When you do that you loose all that udev "brings to the table" and revert back to devfs. I know that devfs works, but the future (as they say) is udev. Matter of fact devfs is obsoleted in the newer kernels.

Now, for starters, Dropline Gnome is supported on Slackware 10.1 ONLY. It will run on current, but it is neither recommended nor encouraged by the DLG devs. They will help if you run into problems but if it is due to current, well you're on your own.

Next for the /dev/dsp thing. Have you run alsaconf, as root, from either a command log on or from a terminal? Alsaconf added the following to my /etc/modules.conf and now I /dev/dsp so that Gnome will function.

/etc/modules.conf
Code:
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
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
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
After a reboot I had a /dev/dsp, /dev/mixer and /dev/midi.

HTH,
MMYoung

As well, when you update your kernel, you need to recompile the alsa-drivers package so your kernel modules are compiled using the new kernel headers. Video and sound drivers need to match symbols with the kernel in order to work properly. I had this issue with a redhat kernel upgrade. I just downloaded the alsa-drivers package, did the ./configure;make;make install routine and sound started working. Didn't need to touch alsa, mixer or configs.

cheers,

Not true. There is also Dropline GNOME 2.8.3 for Slackware 10.0 as you can clearly see here.
