This is somewhat OT and maybe too product specific for this list perhaps but
this problem is driving me insane -maybe someone has had these problems with
I don't have a sound card on my Powerbook yet but I need to hear sound both
in KDE and in sound processing apps. I have a PB G3 (1999-2000) 500Mhz 'new
Every time I bootup Yellow Dog Linux 2.2 I get two error messages
concerning the sound server:
1) sound server informational message: Error while initializing the sound
driver: device /dev/dsp can't be opened (no such device) The sound server
will continue,using the null output device.
2)sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver: SNDCTL_DSP_SETFMT failed - invalid
argument. The sound server will continue,using the null output device.
Needless to say I have no sound in KDE although /dev/dsp exists. Xmms only
works if I choose the output plugin 'esound Output plugin 1.2.5'
[libesdout.so] with Wave Player 1.2.5 [libwav.so] to play .wav sound files.
How do I get KDE to open the dsp and make system sounds?
Any help will be most appreciated,
