Using alsa with headphones
I have just set up my video card using alsa and the snd-atiixp driver. Everything works great except for one quirk. If I plug in a set of headphones, sound is still played through the other speakers on top of the headphones. I found that opening alsamixer and physically muting the master seems to do the job and I only get sound from the headphones. This is extremely tedious and I am wondering if there is a better way? Can you do something to help fedora realize that the headphones are being used and to mute/unmute the master accordingly? Thanks in advance.
