NO sound on kerne-l2.6 with KDE-3.4.1
I was really excited and happy when after several months of no sound on slack10.1 I upgraded to the new linux kernel-2.6.which ( i was told) would have resolved all my problems with sound - In fact it did!!! it was marvellous, I even had all sysem sound on!!! after a few days that 'miracolous event' I decided to also upgrade KDE-3.3 to KDE-3.4.1 and guess what? NO MORE SOUND again! now I found this funny and that's why I'm dedicating a few more lines to let you know what happened -
anyway, the real reason of my post is to know whether anyone has encountered the same or a similar problem and resolved it somehow - i read that KDE-3.4.1 uses the AGPART sound system and the new kernel-2.6 uses ALSA as defualt buit-in modules - what's happening? I thought that ALSA could emulate all the other linux soiund systems - how can i get my sound back? I even upgraded to the latest ALSA package (ALSA 1.0.9)
by the way, I did not load any OOS (open sound system) drivers/modules as per default, eventhough I also tried to re-build the kernel with OSS modules ON and nothing changed - did I miss something building the kernel originally? any other module/s that I should have selected?
thank you for any suggestions
