i need your help with my sound. i read the documentation on www.alsa-project.org & everything seems fine when i set up my sound. i load my modules :
modprobe snd-intel8x0;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
but when i want to play a song in XMMS, i get an error that there is no such a device /dev/mixer.
i found out that i have /dev/sound/mixer . is there a way to move it to /dev/mixer or how can i set up XMMS & maybe the rest of my programs to use /dev/sound/mixer?
maybe i am close to setting up my sound, but i need your help.
thanks for any suggestions.
Here's a good guide on setting up alsa in arch...
Plus, loads in different threads in this forum - if you do a search on alsa you should be able to get all the info you need.
Hi , thanks for the help, fixed!
of no help to your problem what so ever but so you know, modprobe can take multiple arguments, so instead of:
modprobe module; modprobe module; modprobe module etc etc
you can easily do:
modprobe module0 module1 module3 etc etc
every little counts
