Alsa sound problem
I configured my alsa driver with ./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 before making and installing. after make install, alsaconf found my card and reported ok, then i checked alsamixer and everything seemed all right.
here comes the problem: I am using KDE 3.3 and the sound server is conflicting with other programs like xine or vlc. if i wanna use all sound events, i need to enable sound server in control center, but this make it impossible for xine to play movie with audio, and vice versa.
However, this was not a problem while i was using gnome several weeks ago, I installed the package for multiple channel mixing, which is also the package i have now in kde, but it doesn't seem to work as it did before.
Another problem is that I can't get my mic to work, it turns itself off all the time but i can bring the volumn right up to the maximum. i used FC2 before but it wasn't a problem back then.
