They should probably be owned by root and in a group called audio or
similar, make sure that you are in group audio in /etc/group and that group
audio has rw permissions on those /dev entries.
I'm using devfs, so I had to make sure my /etc/devfsd.conf was set up
right... if you don't know what devfs is then you probably not using it.
Oh, you'll need to log out before you are included into any groups you've
added yourself to. And if you are using devfs you'll need to send the
devfsd process a HUP signal to restart it.
I think thats it.... uh, make sure the module is loaded AND mixer settings
are turned up? Ok, so you probably checked that already but it really is
worth a look ;)
"Do you Gentoo?! (http://www.gentoo.org/)"
I'm trying to setup my Linux system (RH8.0; I'm running Gnome for X),
but was having some trouble with the sound output; I was advised to
install the ALSA drivers. However, I can't see to do this. Following
the instructions for installing ALSA for a Creative SoundBlaster Live!
Value, I managed to build the drivers without great difficulty (once I
figured out how to build things ...), but I cannot seem to load the
modules. Instead, it gives me error messages when I try to use
modprobe: Can't locate module emu10k1
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-pcm-oss
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-mixer-oss
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-seq-oss
I'm sure this is something stupid and obvious, but I'm new to Linux
and barely know what modprobe does, let alone how it operates. Any
pointers would be greatly appreciated ...
