sound configuration in Debian - Debian

Hi, I use a Sound Blaster PCI sound card but my X-Window cannot recognise it. It displays a message saying "/dev/dsp cannot be opened. Permission denied. Sound output is null". Can someone tell me how to configure my sound card on Debian. PS. Thanx to everyone who's helped me configure my wireless mouse. I simply ran "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" and selected /dev/psaux and "ImPS/2" for my mouse device and presto! Once again, thanx. __________________________________________________ _______________ Hot chart ringtones and polyphonics.

    Default sound configuration in Debian

    Hi,
    I use a Sound Blaster PCI sound card but my X-Window cannot recognise it. It
    displays a message saying "/dev/dsp cannot be opened. Permission denied.
    Sound output is null". Can someone tell me how to configure my sound card on
    Debian.

    PS. Thanx to everyone who's helped me configure my wireless mouse. I simply
    ran "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" and selected /dev/psaux and "ImPS/2"
    for my mouse device and presto! Once again, thanx.

    I was hoping this was my problem too, but no. Mine is not a
    soundblaster, it is woody on a thinkpad570, which I believe has a
    Cirrus Logic CS 4614 Chip (but I don't know as it's second user kit
    with no doentation). I get the following error message - similar
    but different:

    Sound server informational message:
    Error while initializing the sound driver:
    device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
    The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

    Any hints where to start sctratching...?

    Check if the driver for your sound card is loaded. There seems to be a
    driver calles cs46xx in the kernel as well as an alsa driver called
    snd-card-cs461x.

    Go here for more info:

    'lspci' will give you any info on whats attched to the pci bus. If your
    sound isn't on an ISA bus this will give you the chipset info.
