Have you looked at SkaleLinux.cfg ?
At the "mode" line, anything but '0' seems to produce that error. And if you've chosen the wrong "NUM_DEVICE" that error would occur as well if I rememer correctly.

do you have SDL installed? And with support for the sound daemon you use?

For example... if you use Arts, do you have the SDL pack with Arts support installed?

I had that, but Skale still started. I just didn't get any sound.... Not sure what would happen the other way around though (SDL with aRts support, but no aRts)..... Still you could try if it works when you kill aRts:
Code:
killall artsd
That's how I found out my SDL didn't have support for it .
