I recently had to re-install slackware 8.1 and now I have the task of getting sound to work once again. I did this before but I cannot remember how, I posted this on the Linux boards also so hopefully someone either here or there will know. I use a SoundBlaster Live PCI 128 and I have done the following.
I edited my /etc/modules.conf file and added a line that reads alias sound es1371. No idea what this does I just did some searching and read that this was what to do heh.
Then I looked in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncommented the line for the es1371. According to the info in rc.modules es1370 is the correct module for my soundcard but it does not work, and 1371 does only under "certain circumstances".
Ok then I typed modprobe es1371 and then typed lsmod and the es1371 shows up, under the column "Used" it says 0. Ok now the sound works, if I type xmms it works and I can listen to music, but...if I choose to logoff and then startx again it freezes when i type xmms. Now when I lsmod it says 1 under the column "Used". Thats the first problem, and the second one is when I reboot the machine completely, and start Linux, and then startx I get an error "Cannot open /dev/mixer". The sound does not work now, and when I type lsmod es1371 isn't listed. But if I modprobe es1371 and then lsmod it is listed, and the sound does work. Anyone know why I have to modprobe everytime I reboot? Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post I just wanted to be as specific as possible.
Also this may be a longshot but has anyone gotten anjuta to work with slackware 9 rc1, and if so what files did you have to download.
