:::Praises above for someone responding:::

I'm still having the problem. I can't get any sound at all out of my Compaq
Armada E500 - I seem to only get a 'blip' when I start up X 4 with Gnome,
but that's about it. XMMS, X11Amp, and mpg123 don't seem to give any sound.
I tried KDE also but to no avail.

At the end of my kernel config I put 'device pcm', and recomiled and did
'make install'.

I did do the MAKEDEV, so is that a bad thing? Should I reinstall 4.5-REL?
And what do you mean 'no need for MAKEDEV'?

I highly appreciate any help you can give.

A little late this, but I've not read the list for a while.

Just wondered if you still have the problem? I have an E500 running
4.5-STABLE, and have had no problems with sound on this. There should be
no need to "manually" run MAKEDEV.
