Error on sound device


#1

Hello, anybody knows how to fix this error on asterisk console? Here’s the error.
[app_talkdetect.so]May 2 19:27:40 WARNING[6541]: chan_oss.c:239 sound_thread: Read error on sound device: Resource temporarily unavailable

If you’re running X (KDE/Gnome) on the box, then it may be that various mixers and whatnot have “captured” your sound device; making it unavailable to Asterisk…

What I normally do (running Slackware) is:
run “alsaconf” from a commandline
Accept the defaults offered by alsaconf

Modify the /etc/asterisk/modules.conf so the appropriate lines look like:

load => chan_alsa.so
noload => chan_oss.so

Then you should be happy camper.

Take care,
Leo
