no sound while playing any type of audio(audio cd, mp3 etc)
I have recently installed Red Hat Linux 9.0. I have DVD/CDRW combo and I can access it to see the contents. But the problem is,
1.there is no sound when I play any audio cd. When I try to check volume control there is a popup saying something like:
How do I get the soung to work.When I tried the sound I received an
unable to open audio device '/dev/mixer'. Please check that you have
permissions to open '/dev/mixer/'and that you have sound support in your kernel.
2. Can anyone tell how to play mp3 on Linux.
I have tried to find out the solution of this problem in previously posted queries and found answers like check alsconf alsamixer , as I am quite new these terms are new and I would appreciate a stepwise answer.
(i.e. what and how to do if any checks are required or drivers are to be loaded from any package)
Any help is appreciated.
