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

when I run "alsaconf" as root it says this:

No Supported PnP or PCI card found
Would you like to probe legacy ISA Sound Card/Chips

Then it says No Legacy drivers are available

smokey@darkstar:~% alsamixer

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device

I reinstalled Slackware 9.1 earlier and before hand, I was running -current and sound was working just fine, but now I reinstalled 9.1 and kept all the existing packages intact and if there were any updates for 9.1 I downloaded and used upgradepkg but sound doesnt work still?
