alsaconf ran fine. I stopped 'alsa' (and noted that all snd modules were
unloaded), ran alsaconf, and noted that modules were now loaded.
Still can't get sound via /dev/dsp. It's my understanding that snd_pcm_oss
should be the one that handles /dev/dsp.
The following 'snd' related modules are loaded:
# lsmod |grep snd
snd_pcm_oss 41824 0
snd_mixer_oss 16640 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_intel8x0 34024 0
snd_ac97_codec 117784 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_pcm 87256 3 snd_pcm_oss,snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec
snd_page_alloc 9424 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
ac97_bus 2240 1 snd_ac97_codec
My kernel is 2.6.26-gentoo-r1. But I tried another couple from 2.6.24 and
didn't have success there either. I wonder whether it's a user-land lib
