Changing Default Sound Card

Recommended Posts

Guest 8086

Hi everybody,

I am a new user of Linux (although I have been trying various distros for the past two years). I searched a lot in this forum and some other forums to get a solution to the default sound card problem. But none helped. The situation is like this. I have an onboard sound card on my Intel motherboard and a PCI Soundblaster Live 5.1 card. Mandriva 2006, by default , chose the onboard one. I wanted the SBLive, but didn't want to disable the onboard either. After going through various posts and trying out the suggestions, I did something which is working for me now. Earlier my modprob.conf file in /etc was like this.

alias eth0 via-rhine

 

alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0

alias sound-slot-1 snd-emu10k1

 

remove snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-emu10k1

install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-emu10k1

 

remove snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0

install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }

install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe uhci-hcd; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true

 

I changed it as follows:

 

alias eth0 via-rhine

 

alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1

alias sound-slot-1 snd-intel8x0

 

remove snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0

install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }

 

remove snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-emu10k1

install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-emu10k1

install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe uhci-hcd; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true

 

The changes are in bold. The SBLive entry is now after the Intel entry. Now SBLive is the default card.

Please don't shout at me if a solution to this has already been posted. This is my first hack in Linux, and I wanted to tell all MandrivaUsers :D

I'm not shouting, in fact I'm pleased you posted this item. I may well need it myself in the not too distant future.

 

Thanks
