That reminds me of something. A long time ago, I put the following in a file/etc/udev/rules.d/30-local.rules after a udev upgrade broke my sound: # alsa devices KERNEL="controlC0", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" KERNEL="pcmC0D0c", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" KERNEL="pcmC0D0p", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" KERNEL="pcmC0D1c", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" KERNEL="pcmC0D1p", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" KERNEL="seq", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" KERNEL="timer", NAME="snd/%k", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="audio" The person having trouble could try that. Another thing to try is 'killall artsd' and then see what happens. -- Barry.SCHWARTZ@×××××××××××××.org http://www.chemoelectric.org Esperantistoj rajtas skribi al Barijo.SXVARCO@×××××××××××××.org 'And now we're going to go try to comfort people in that part of the world.' -- Bush, referring to the southeastern U.S.
