Diabling onboard sound card and enabling pci slot sound card
I have tried looking for a solution to this problem, but my very limited knowledge on linux has prevented me from going much further.
I am using RH 9.0.
I am using an MSI mother board. When I open the audio devices from System Settings, two cards are being shown:
Vendor: VIA Technologies
Model: VT82C686 AC 97 Audio controller
Vendor: Cirrus logic
Model: CS 4614/22/24 Crystal Clear SoundFusion audio acclerator
both these have been automatically detected while installation.
Now when I test the sound the one that is on PCI slot(Cirrus one) produces a sound and the other one doesn't. (Doesn't matter to me)
but there is no sound in xmms, or any other media/cd player for that matter. the files play, all the volumes are turned to full, but still no sound.
I feel this is a deeply discussed topic but I have been able to follow very little of it.
I will be glad if anyone could help me with this.
