hi to you all.

could anyone help me with this?

i'm trying to get my tascam us-122 running on slackware.

the lsmod says:

to my limited knowledge it says that the card is installed and up. the 
problem is that there is no sound. either does the card show in f ex 
xmms options.

alsamixer announces:

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device

have i missed something during the alsa installation. i'm on slackware 
on 2.4.25-kernel which i patched according to the instructions on the 
linux audio users guide page. i'd be really grateful if someone could 
come with an advice on how to get this working...

my modules.conf:

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 
alias snd-card-0 snd-usb-usx2y
# module options should go here

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
