An ALSA nightmare....

I'm currently trying to get ALSA installed on my system ... and I must say
that it has been the most difficult to install of all the packages I have
tried. I completely gave up on v0.9.0, and changed over to v0.5.12a. I think
my current problem is that devfsd doesn't create the /dev/dsp by default,
since when I start kde it complains about not being able to find /dev/dsp,
unless I run the snddevices script first. However, the changes that the
snddevices script makes are not permantent. When I reboot, /dev/dsp is gone.
I don't want to have to run snddevices every time. I'd like to make devfsd
do the work that snddevices does by making changes to /etc/devfsd.conf, but
I'm not sure how to do it.
Looking through the snddevices script, I think need to create (mknod) these
/dev name minor (all the major #'s are 14)
Is anyone else having trouble with alsa?
I have added these lines to my devfsd.conf file
REGISTER sound/.* PERMISSIONS audio.audio rw-rw----
LOOKUP dsp EXECUTE /usr/script/load_sb.sh
and load_sh.sh is:
pres=`lsmod | grep "^$sound_mod\ " | tr -d '[:space:]'`
if [ -z $pres ]; then
As per the devfsd+dsp hint.
(I'm not certain if this script works right -- am I supposed to replace
[:space:] with some spaces -- how many?)
Does anyone know the difference between snd-ens1370 and snd-card-ens1370? I
have two different .o files for each of them.
Thanks for your time.
