Default Installing /dev/mixer.

I have installed alsa

$ dpkg -l * | grep -i 'ii.*alsa' | awk '{ print $2 }'
alsa-base
alsa-oss
alsa-tools
alsa-tools-gui
alsa-utils
alsamixergui
libasound2:i386
linux-sound-base

$ lsmod | grep snd | cut -d ' ' -f 1
snd_intel8x0
snd_intel8x0m
snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm
snd_page_alloc
snd_timer
snd
soundcore
ac97_bus

$

on

$ cat /proc/version | fmt
Linux version 3.2.0-2-486 (Debian 3.2.20-1)
(debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-7) )

and it's working for the things I want. However, I installed xmix, and it
fails when run because it can't find /dev/mixer, which doesn't exist. How do I
find the smallest set of packages to load that will define /dev/mixer?
apt-file doesn't return anything on a search for /dev/mixer, nor can I find
anything using www.debian.org/distrib/packages .

Did you run alsaconf? Btw. I don't know for what sound cards /dev/mixer
is. Is snd-mixer-oss loaded?

Sorry,

"$ lsmod | grep snd | cut -d ' ' -f 1
snd_intel8x0
snd_intel8x0m
snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm
snd_page_alloc
snd_timer
snd
soundcore
ac97_bus"

Isn't it needed to get /dev/mixer?

"This interface to the sound driver mixer allows easy adjustment of the
sound card's input and output levels, and selection of sound source for
recording." - http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/xmix

It doesn't mention for what sound cards. Did you ensured that it's for
your audio device?

It wasn't, and loading it solved the problem. Thanks for your reply to my
message.
