Thread: Sound Error (device or resource busy)

  1. #1

    Sound Error (device or resource busy)

    When i boot KDE, an informational pops up and says the following-

    Error while intializing the sound driver
    device /dev/dsp can't be opened (device or resource busy)

    sound server will continue, using the null output device

    does anyone know how to fix this?

    Re:Sound Error (device or resource busy)

    Check to see if /dev/dsp exist. It should be in /dev Also what sound card are you using?

    Re:Sound Error (device or resource busy)

    This is more then likely going to be an interrupt conflict. Can you post the output of:

    cat /proc/interrupts

    Look in /var/log/messages for any errors that reference your sound card and post them.

    What version of Red Hat are you using? What sound card do you have?

    Re:Sound Error (device or resource busy)

    let it be known that i am totally a noob with linux:. the good thing is that i choose to learn about it rather than deal with XP which totally frustrates me. with that in mind, i can tell you i have an Ensoniq audioPCI (sound blaster) 1371.

    Currently, i am running redhat 7.2/Enigma (KDE is my preference as far as GUI's)
    i want to try those commands you guys offered but i am not sure as to how to properly input them into the konsole. do i have to do it in root?
    I do have a dsp file.

    thanks for all your help, god know i need.

    Re:Sound Error (device or resource busy)

    i tried a few things since i last posted. first i chmod o+rw blah blah blah. then i chown Greg:Greg /dev/dsp (i think)

    i am still working on getting those commands to input and getting you info on the situation.

    It is not necessary with Red Hat to set the /dev permissions. These are set when you login.

    Have you updated your 7.2 install with all available errata?

    Can you post a copy of your /etc/modules.conf

    and the ouput of: /sbin/lsmod

    Really? wierd. I don't think it will make a difference anyway. The output of /sbin/lsmod looks fine. So far I haven't seen anything to indicate where the problem may be. :'(

    As root try:

    cat /etc/modules.conf

    Have you tried going into the KDE Control Center are restarting aRTS? aRTS is the KDE sound server.
