I'm having issues with my current sound setup, and my Fedora Core 2 box. (installed from DVD iso, and running kernel 2.6.6-358)
I originally had the onboard sound from my Via 82xx AC'97 switched on, and connected to my creative labs dolby digital amp via an optical cable.
I was able to get stereo output to the front 2 surround speakers, but nothing else. even when using 4.1 surround mode.
to make things worse, 5.1 sound wasn't working in either ogle or kaffeine with w32codecs, A52, xine-libs and most other sound libraries installed, so DVD was silent
In my fury, I switched of the chipset in the BIOS and installed my trusty Audigy from creative. I attached this to the same amp with the green and black 3.5mm jack double cable.
I still only get stereo output on the front speakers. nothing from center and rear
All volume levels are at full, and I believe that no levels are muted, as I can get output from the front surround.
Can anybody help with getting 4.1, dolby prologic or even
dolby digital output from my linux box.
I dont mind swapping between my via chipset or audigy If I can get a bone fide way of getting true surroud from my box.
If there are log files that you need, tell me which ones, and how to get at them, and I will oblige.
Thanks in advance
