Hi ,

I want to play and record audio file in my custom atmel 9263 board running
with linux(2.6.20).
when I tried to play aplay for a wave file, I got

$aplay /home/alarm.wav
ALSA lib pcm.c:1707:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
aplay: main:446: audio open error: No such file or directory

$aplay -l
aplay: device_list:187: no soundcards found...

$cat /proc/asound/devices
  2:        : timer
  3:        : sequencer
  4: [ 0- 0]: digital audio playback
  5: [ 0]   : control

Can you tel me where I am doing wrong..??

Thanks in advance..
