Hi list. I am still having problems getting my sound to work properly =
(or as I would like it). Currently I can play speech or something else =
but I can't have speech and any other kind of sound together. I have =
upgraded my distro to 9.04 and switched from the EEE kernel to a generic =
Kernel. I am now also running version 1.0.21 of the Alsa driver, library =
and Utils. Would this now have Dmix by default and if so I'm guessing I =
need to do some configuration in order to get multi channel sound.
I don't really know much about sound or working with Alsa so if any-one =
knows some links to some fairly simple documentation that can give me =
the building blocks I may need to try and fix this problem that would be =
great.

Thanks
Jen!

You need to buy a proper sound card with hardware mixing (e.g.
SB Audigy) or configure Alsa to do software mixing. Why modern
distributions don't configure this properly on their own puzzles
me, but they probably just throw in the horrible PulseAudio
without thinking a lot about it.

Oh wait, I just saw an nice bit of news: ALSA 1.0.9rc2 or later
supports software mixing by default, but you probably don't have
that version yet.

The bottom line is that you need to write the proper incantation
into some text file. I don't need that so I'll leave that to
the others to explain who have such a setup...

Cheers,

Leslie
