To try and configure my sound correctly, I have added the following to my modules.conf file:
alias char-major-116 snd alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci # Module options # OSS/Free Portion alias char-major-14 soundcore alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0 # Card #1 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-
...as well as
REGISTER ^snd/.* PERMISSIONS root.users 0660 LOOKUP snd MODLOAD LOOKUP dsp MODLOAD LOOKUP mixer MODLOAD LOOKUP sequencer MODLOAD
...to my devfsd.conf file and
snd-cmipci snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss snd-seq-oss
...to the MODULES() in my rc.conf file.
The trouble is, when starting KDE, I get the following error message:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (Permission denied)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
I have done a complete system upgrade with pacman, and I definitely have the newest Alsa driver, lib and tools packages installed. Is there anything I have missed?
