    ALSA and KDE


    Has anyone gotten KDE to work with ALSA? I keep getting complaints that /dev/dsp is non existent.

    modules.conf

    Code:
    ### DEBCONF MAGIC
    # This file was automatically generated by alsa-base's debconf stuff
    
    alias char-major-116 snd
    alias char-major-14 soundcore
    
    options snd major=116 cards_limit=4
    
    alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
    alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
    alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
    alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
    alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
    alias /dev/dsp* snd-pcm-oss
    
    alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
    
    alias snd-slot-0 snd-card-0
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-slot-0
    
    ### update-modules: end processing alsa ###
    I copied this off my modprobe.conf list. I'm using a soundblaster live card.

    When I compiled the kernel, was I supposed to choose anything else besides ALSA and my soundcard under PCI?
