I was running Mandrake 9.0 and recently upgraded to 9.1 on my laptop but haven't managed to get sound working on either yet.
Running sndconfig, my sound card (NeoMagic) is automatically detected but then I am given the error:
sox: Can't open output file '/dev/dsp' no such device
when it tries to play a test sound.
Looking at the sound HOWTO, as far as I can work out I need to run 'make xconfig' and change sound support in the kernel but on typing that command I get:
make: *** No rule to make target 'xconfig'. Stop.
a) A way to get xconfig to work? or
A way to configure my soundcard without having to mess around with the kernel?
NB. I *have*:
-Tried chmod 666 /dev/dsp
-Installed the kernel-source rpm
