Right, here we go .. my sound doesn't work. Well ogg123 will play via oss device but arts isn't working. I've recompiled kernel to check correct options were followed and I've tried with things as modiles and integrated ... nada! I've reinstalled kde ... nada! I've run alsaconf about a thousand times ... nada! I've upgraded to latest glibc (compilation and all works, but still) ... nada!
Have attached my system details as a comment below. It seems to be related to libesd.so.0 but I can't find the Slackware package that installs this. I've reinstalled all the arts- packages too, without success.
Any thoughts ...
Everything else works fine. Have NVIDIA drivers installed ... check! Have modem working after using setserial ... check! Compilation works ... check! Sound .... <boo hoo>.
