Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After much clicking and setting, I could manage to get alsa to work ok. It seems to fail with default configs, but when I change it, I can hear sound ok. I discovered that by changing the 'configure' box in xmms' "Output plugin" options: with "default pcm device" it fails. With "HW:1,1" it succeeds. with HW set to 0,1 I could hear the famous (or infamous?) crackling sound, that lots of people talk about.
However, the channels are kinda messed up:
When listening to xmms mp3, kamix won't lower or raise the volume using the 'master' fader. It is completely bypassed.
Either 'headphone' and 'pcm' can control the volume of mp3 music.
My tv/radio card is ok, outputing to "aux" channel.
The cd volume is controlled by either 'headphone' fader and 'cd' fader. In KsCD there's a volume controller also, that can control volume, but it doesn't correspond to anyone of kamix.
Xmms' volume controller is also bypassed. My guess is its trying to control master.
Is there anything I can do?
Obs! - No matter what I do, whether it is alsa or oss, kmix always crashes with signal 8.
