I have a Dell Inspiron 3500 laptop. I was able to install Redhat 8.0
on it. Everything seemed to work except the sound. I could not get
my laptop to make any sound. The linux recognized the sound device to
Neomagic 256 AV. When I click on the VOLUME control, it responded
with following error:
I was not able to open your audio device. Please check if you have the
permission to open /dev/mixer and make sure you have sound support
compiled into your kernel.
I logged in as root and I am not sure how to check if the sound
support is compiled into the kernel.
Thanks and best regards,
