Multiple soundcards

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have 3 soundcards, VIA 8137 integrated, SB Live!, Terratec 88MT. I want to output all system sounds, games, mp3's videos to the SB Live card.

 

HardDrake detects all the cards fine, but using KMix I can select only the VIA and Terratec cards for mixing, not SB Live at all. The same happens when I try to select my output card in XMMS, I only see the 2 cards. Actually, I have only /dev/dsp and /dev/dsp1 files present.

 

Does anyone what should I do to get it working?? I might want to disable the VIA and Terratec cards (in linux, I need all 3 cards in Windoze) for good and just use the SB Live but I don't know how to do it...

in /etc/modules.conf comment out (#) the cards you do not want and leave the one you do want. Make sure the one you want is set up correctly to be the first used. Post your modules.conf if you need help.

i had the same problem with mdk9.2 / mdk10 ... and my 2 soundcards

At each install, mandrake selected the worst soundcard !

 

the only solution i've found ... is to run "alsaconf" (as root) ... and setup the primary soundcard ...

(for me : it has worked like a charm, for 9.2 and for 10)

Thanks for your help, the problem is partially solved now. I needed to comment out all lines referring to the two cards in both /etc/modules.conf and /etc/modprobe.conf

 

Now only the SB Live module is loaded on boot and I'm able to control the volumes with any mixer I happen to like at the time :D

 

One problem there still is but I decided to post a new topic for it...
