Alright, heres my rundown:
I installed Arch0.7 base. Installed xorg and xfce4 along with various others (thunderbird, firefox, gaim etc).
My problem is I have no sound. I have followed the wiki and done the following:
Pacman -Sy alsa-utils alsa-lib
alsaconf (found sound card so i selected it)
amixer set Matser 100 unmute
amixer set PCM 100 unmute
gpasswd -a travis audio optical
yet my sound still doesent work
Heres the output of my lsmod:
How about a little more info...
as your regular user:
$ id $ ls -l /dev/snd /dev/sound
Alright, I managed to get sound working but every time i have to run alsaconf ??? anyway I can make it do it automatically so I dont have to do it every time i reboot?
Also not sure If I should post this in a new topic or what, but every time I try to save a file to /home/travis say with gphpedit or gedit it gives me this error (NOTE: I run XFCE4)
"Unable to save 'test'.
This may be due to incorrect permissions or being out of space on the drive.
(test being the filename). The user name is "travis". I have tried:
chown -R travis:users /home/travis
chmod -R 777 /home/travis
Also, if I try to open a file to read (IE in gphpedit it says file now found when it IS there, or in redit says filename is invalid yet ive i open it in xterm or nano it works). I cannto read nor save files to my /home/travis dir. I can use mkdir from the terminal and it works and the like, just not through apps like gedit, ideas? Thanks[/b]
In the installation docs you were told to add this lines to /etc/devfsd.conf:
# Permissions for sound devices
REGISTER sound/.* PERMISSIONS root.audio 660
REGISTER snd/.* PERMISSIONS root.audio 660
Did it solve the problem, or do I have to look further?
