Sound configuration RH 7.1

Sound configuration RH 7.1

Post by Luke Vanderflui » Sun, 02 Dec 2001 08:26:46


using linux 2.4
I have the sound module working
However when I try to configure it with sndconfig, it complains that it
can't open /dev/audio
when I do 'cat /dev/sndstat', I get a permission denied message.

I've read that with 2.4 kernel, /dev/sndstat is no longer used.
If so, what do I use to check the status of the sound module?

'dmesg' gives the following, which might be useful in tracking the fault.

1. RH 7.1 Printer configuration problem

Hi :
I just migrated to RH 7.1 from RH 7.0. I m having problem with my
I used the new tool printconf to do the job. I defined a new queue.
But when I try to test a page ( or invoke lpq from teh command line ),

not be located. I searched the web and LPRng howto seemed to be
suggesting that I get this because I dont have an /etc/printcap. In my
case I have one except that it only have comment lines ( cautioning me
not to edit it directly ).
1. So how am I supposed to get printcap configured. Or did I miss
something else.
2. Also in the earlier print configuration tool ( which I used to
launch from the control-panel ), there was an option to define a queue
that will print 2 ( or 4 or 8 ) pages on one side of the sheet. I
couldn t find any ways in the new printconf. Is that a dead end.
