alsamixer adjustments


running alsamixer in FC3.
having alsamixer up running , I can do a right-left arrow movement, but PCM
is off, not mutted , if I do a pageup or pagedn it has no affect on changing PCM
settings. And I have no system sound,
/usr/sbin/alsactl store or restore has no affect, for system sound.
/sbin/lsmod , snd modules are loaded for VIA 823x rev60 card .

Hi.

It's the cursors you use (just the up and down arrows) to change volumes in alsamixer.

as SU, in alsamixer , using up&dn arrows on PCM has no affects to settings.
I had a different sound card in this box and it worked fine, but when i swap snd cards
this VIA card was detected but no system sound, I can play music CD's

Do you have another card (like a TV card) that ALSA might think is a sound card?

I just swapped out with a ensoniq, that uses the snd-ems1371 module and it worked with
no changes in settings. and I can change the settings for PCM in alsamixer.
I guess Linux doesn't like the VIA sound card in this model.

Thanks
Jim

Hmmm.

Maybe the wrong module is being loaded for your card. I'd imagine that would cause the problems you're seeing.

It could be an interrupt thing too. Try putting the sound card in another PCI slot and try again. (It's rare, but you never know.)

It's a onboard sound system.
I just shut it off and plugged in another sound card in a spare PCI slot.
Maybe, the module will be fixed someday down road.

Thanks

I'm using a VIA based motherboard with a Rev50 VT8233 onboard card, and it works fine in 2.6.9 (as it did in all 2.4 and 2.6 kernels).

I'm out of ideas. Maybe it's the Rev60 version.
