Fun with soundcards under Debian squeeze
I have been installing Debian squeeze i386 and had some fun with my two sound cards.
What is cool in squeeze is that it now handles multiple sound cards. What is not is that some applications don't care !
I have one AC97 compliant sound card and one SB Audigy. I switched off the AC97 in pulseaudio and got sound with totem and rythmbox, but not with vlc and flash plugin ?!
Solved the problem by disabling the AC97 circuit in the BIOS. Which means that flash plugin and vlc use the first sound card as default ouput without looking at system setup. This sucks you Adobe and vlc guys : Have you heared about clean code ?
Any way, vlc doesn't use system font settings either...
