during autoconfiguration of sndconfig this error appears:
error occurred when opening /dev/audio
This is after it tries to play a sound. My sound card, an
SB AWE64 Gold, is correctly identified.
This used to work in 5.2 and in earlier versions of 5.8
Edit your /etc/conf.modules so that the line
'alias sound sb'
actually starts on it's own line. There was a bug
in the 5.9 installer where it didn't write a newline
at the end of /etc/conf.modules.
Does that solve the problem?
yes, this addresses it
