/dev/dsp missing? (SOLVED)
Hi all again.
I have had gentoo set up on my lappy for about a week now with no issues relating to this, but when i tried to play music this arvo, both snackamp and mpg123 complained that /dev/dsp is missing.
well actually snackamp complained about /dev/mixer & mpg123 about /dev/dsp.
i am sure i didnt change any settings relating to /dev/dsp & /dev/mixer. a quick search in /dev dir reveals that i have no /dev/dsp, /dev/dsp1 and /dev/mixer.
i do have /dev/dsp2 and /dev/dsp3 though.
what is going on? may this have anything to do with the fact that i have been unable to get alsa to save its volume settings as "alsactl" does not exist?
