My soundcard has worked fine ever since I started using Sabayon, but some update about a week ago messed up the permissions (?) or something on the device so I can't get anything to work.
When I login to KDE, there is a message that reads:
- Code: Select all
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: /dev/dsp can't be opened for playback (Permission denied)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
As a result, no audio works (duh), KMix reports that there are no mixers, etc., etc. I've run alsaconf several times, and it detects my card and apparently sets it up (the module does get loaded), but I can't use it. I recompiled all aRTS and ALSA packages, made sure my user was added to the "audio" group, and even recompiled kernels 2.6.21 and 2.6.22 to make sure there were no issues, but no luck.
Any ideas how I could get this to work again? (udev, arts, alsa, ...)[/quote]
