Change default sound card with 2 cards
Hi, I recently installed Mandrake 9.2 and everything went well except for sound. The problem is that I have 2 sound cards (onboard which i don't use, and SB audigy which i want to use).
I have set the system output to dsp1 which is my audigy and the 'Test Sound' button works as well as other system sounds, but no apps use the right sound card. I can get output from my onbaord card with the apps.
What I want to do is make the audigy my default card. I noticed the onboard sound modules load first, so maybe if I can switch the order in which they load I can fix this?? How to I switch the load order? I am familiar with scripting and such, so changing a script won't be a problem if I know where to go.
If anyone has other suggestions on how to get my audigy to work for all apps, that would be great. Oh, and when i mouse over an audio file, it goes through the audigy too! Just not normally in apps (like Totem etc.). Thanks for any help, this is the only thing keeping me from using Linux on a more regular basis, I need my music.
... one thing I did try was to rename dsp to dsp5 or something, and change dsp1 to the default dsp, but it won't let me do that, even as root.
(sorry, I can't post any output about my setup now, I'm at work, it's the 2.4 kernel with alsa)
