I'm trying to recompile my kernel (2.2.6) to allow sound on my
laptop. However, the various config mechanisms (menuconfig; xconfig)
don't seem to allow the option "/dev/dsp and /dev/audio support" in
the Sound part of the configuration.
This means that when I try (as root) something like
cat soundfile.au > /dev/dsp
I get an error message telling me that the device is not recognized.
How do I overcome this? I don't particularly want to upgrade my
kernel as everything else is working beautifully.
