ALSA && PPP with 2.6test9
I have trouble trying to get alsa and ppp to work with the 2.6test9 kernel.
It builds and starts fine, login to X fine.
I have no sound and can't dial in using my modem. Pretty much the error messages are that:
/dev/dsp does not exist. /dev/modem does not exist.
Even if I try to cat /dev/dsp I get an error!!!
I am logged in as root.
All permissions are fine.

did you recompile alsa after you built the kernel? also, try using modprobe to load the modules for your hardware.. that's all i can think of without knowing more about your system..Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

You don't need to compile any alsa drivers if you're using 2.6, so I'm told (b/c it's built into the kernel). Check out the ALSA guide over at gentoo: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml
It's really helpful...that's what I used to get setup with alsa."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

Oh, and I don't think ALSA uses /dev/dsp as the soundcard device, but you can make ALSA emulate OSS = use /dev/dsp.
I have never used alsa, just skimmed throug the documentation
