I've previously used Fedora Core 4 and Ubuntu, but I'm trying to LEARN how to use linux and a friend of mine suggested total emersion by switching to slackware so i can't use apt-get or yum. So here's my problem:
After a fresh install of Slackware 11 I was able to get my 7 button mouse working, but I have no sound.
the message I get is this:I ran alsaconf as root and it initially fixed my problem -- i had sound. But when I restarted my computer i got the same message and didn't have sound. I tried to run alsaconf again because i forgot to use alsactl store but it didn't do any good. i've tried chmod 777 /dev/dsp* and nothing seems to work.Quote:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for capture (Permission denied)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
what do i need to do to fix my sound?
