First, thankyou very much for the help I'm getting;
Here's what I can report so far-
1. I tried the modinfo soundcore command which went unrecognized until
I got the bright idea of trying it as Root user with the following
[root at localhost alex]# modinfo soundcore
description: Core sound module
author: Alan Cox
vermagic: 22.214.171.124-12mdk 686 gcc-3.4
the alsaconfig command is unrecognized even if comming from root:
[root at localhost alex]# alsaconf
bash: alsaconf: command not found
[root at localhost alex]#
Another clue is that at boot I get the following message:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be oopened (no such file or directory)
The sound server will continue using the null output device.
in fact it's true: there is no dsp file on the /dev directory.
I'm a little timid about typing:
modprobe snd-sb16;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe
is this literally what I should type? I've not seen terminal commands
I'll do it with a little reassurance and encouragement!
Thanks, John (and to Davide who has been sending me some help as well.)
I'll keep at this for a while but am also in the process of following
Davide's advice and burning a Kbuntu live CD to see if I might want to
switch from Mand..linux.
