I'm having a few issues with my sound card that i just added to my linux computer.
a Compaq deskpro ep series
pentium 3 prossessor
AGp Graphics card
no onboard sound
updated kernal to 6.2.13
updated alsa drivers,utils,and libs when I updated the kernal
The Creative labs card:
Creative labs sound blaster Audigy SE
I used alsaconf and alsamixer under root and setup the sound card before i started x, I started x then went to KDE's sound control panel and tested the sound. the first part of the test plays but after 2secconds in it changes to a loud white noise (scared the crap out of me
) then it plays the very end of the last part of the sound test. I doubble checked the levels in alsamixer and used different KDE programs to check that the levels were ok, they were. My question is where is all the white noise coming from??
I checked some other posts and the ones i found either applyed to a different os or were unanswered, or the user switched distros (not gona happen, i like slack to much)
here's the output of /sbin/lspci
