    you need to allso add alsasound to the default runlevel with rc-update add alsasound default then make sure that SAVE_ON_STOP="yes" is set in /etc/conf.d/alsasound and, finaly, do /etc/init.d/alsasound restart and it should store current settings if its all set up properly.
    good call about the segfault...here's the output when i run "xfce4-panel" from xterm:
    Code:
    josh@computer ~ $ xfce4-panel
    /home/josh/.themes/Milke 2.3/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:17: Unable to find include file: "icons/iconrc"
    Segmentation fault
    josh@computer ~ $
    I never thought about running it from an xterm. do you think changing my theme would fix it?
    I've also just added alsasound to the default runlevel.
    I just checked and SAVE_ON_STOP does equal "yes".

    thanks a lot!

    /home/josh/.themes/Milke 2.3/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:17: Unable to find include file: "icons/iconrc"
    Yes, changing the theme probably would fix that but it looks like a simple error.

    take a look at that file with nano and go to line 17 it should say something about icons/iconrc which is probably the wrong uri.. if you can find that file (icons/iconrc) then you can probably fix the link in gtkrc and hopfully stop the segfault.

    I searched and couldn't find "iconrc" and it said "include "/icons/iconrc" in the file so I commented it out but that didn't work either.

    oh well, I'll change to another theme

    thanks a lot for all of you help!

    EDIT: changing the theme worked

    ** (xfce4-panel: 20562): WARNGING **: alsa_cb

    bah, oh well.

    please show me your make.conf. Also you could try ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -av xfce4-panel and same for alsa and your cards driver (if its a kernel module, not built in) (it was the panel right?) please also show me the output of emerge -pv xfce4-panel.

    make.conf:
    Code:
    # These settings were set by the catalyst build scrpit that automatically built this stage
    # Please consult /etc/make.conf.example for a more detailed example
    CFLAGS="-O2 -march=athlon-xp -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
    CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
    CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
    MAKEOPTS="-j3"
    USE="-kde -fortran -gnome x86 3dnow X -accessibility acpi alsa apm arts cdr cups esd truetype glut gtk gtk2 java jikes nocd opengl python qt samba usb videos zlib"
    CCACHE_SIZE="26"
    FEATURES="distlocks"
    the kernel module "emu10k1", which is my card's drivers, i built into it. should i recompile the kernel with the drivers as a module instead of built in? also, i'm sure you understand this but just in case, the panel only closes when i have the volume control applet open in it and i play a sound (or change a song, etc,...).

    Output of "emerge -pv xfce4-panel":
    Code:
    computer  josh # emerge -pv xfce4-panel
    
    There are the packages that I would merge, in order:
    
    Calculating dependencies ....done!
    [ebuild    #    ]  xfce4-base/xfce4-panel-4.2.0  -debug  -doc  0 kB
    
    Total size of downloads: 0 kB
    I'm now emerging xfce4-panel and some other dependencies now with this command (the one you suggested): "ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -av xfce4-panel"

    I've installed the card's driver (emu10k1) using emerge earlier also. This shouldn't give the build in driver on the kernel a problem should it?

    I will also emerge alsa again using the same command as I did with xfce4-panel.

    Thanks for the help!


    EDIT: also, i'm pretty sure this will fix some things...I'm still using the kernel from gentoo sources that came with the 2005.0 iso. it's version is 2.6.11-gentoo-r3. when i try installing alsa it wants to install 2.6.11-gentoo-r11. can i use genkernel on the newer kernel?? Last few times I've tried compiling a kernel myself, the system wouldn't boot....but when I use genkernel I let it select all that I need, then I take away things I know I don't need...so I feel much more comfortable using genkernel, if that's an option here. Thanks in advance

    ok, i got that to work...now using the vanilla kernel 2.6.12. alsa seems to load correclty at startup, but it still exits the panel (and alsamixer) if i play a sound

    i also can't change the tone (increase/decrease bass/treble)

    do you have any idea what's wrong? i made sure to compile emu10k1 into the kernel as a module...

    thanks for helping
