Kmix Crash on Start- Audio Lost (Signal 8 (SIGFPE))

I've had no trouble playing music on KDE 3.2 for months, however Kmixer now crashes when I try to bring it up-- taking all audio with it.

I get the crash handler right away, stating:
"The applicaton KMix (kmix) crashed and caused the signal 8 (SIGFPE)"
(It won't give me any backtract info)

I installed Alsa - - ran alsaconfig with success - - but still no sound. How can I give Kmix the boot and use something else?
Is there some syntax I need to add or modify in a .config file somewhere?

If you haven't noticed I'm a complete Newb-boob.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!! My KDE must see another day of ROCK!
KDE 3.2 Mandrake 10.0

I appologize - - I got it to work.

After installing Alsa and running alsaconfig - - AND THEN rebooting - kmix launches just fine and the alsamixer also works like a charm. I was under the impression that linux didn't rely so much on rebooting the node - - no like windoze crizzzzzap.

Sorry for the fodder. HOpe this may help someone in the future.

There is no need to reboot. Just make sure the sounddrivers get loaded (on SuSE distribution, the sound drivers will be automaticaly (re-)loaded after reconfiguration of the soundcard or on boot).
After loading drivers (implicitely or explicitely, if required by your distribution), you just nedd to quit KMix (Ctrl-Q) and start it again via K-Menu.
