Error Couldn't open mixer device....
When opening Gnome I get this error...
Couldn't open mixer device /dev/sound/mixer
This box has no sound card.

How can I stop this error?
Running Slack 9

chmod 666 /dev/sound/mixer*

There is no /dev/sound/mixer.........???

Any ideas on which config file may be responsible for loading this device? :scratch:

Try removing the Volume Control applet from your panel, if it's there.

You can always disable sound from the control center too I think (I'm not too familiar with GNOME) turn off sound events and such...

do what tcaptain said by disabling the sound server

Is there a sound card installed?
Do you have a sound card installed in this machine? If not then just point the /dev/mixer to /dev/null

BTW I don't have a /dev/sound directory at all. You may want to check your sound path under gnome. I don't know where that is I don't use gnome

I didn't have a sound card installed. The only way I found to fix this was to install one.......
