Question MDK 10: NForce1 audio: getting rear speakers to work


Finally got around to making the switch to linux, finally got most of it working, in strange ways sometimes (i.e. it detects my d-link dwl-120 wireless card as nforce AGP controller - yet it works?!), anyway here are my problems:

audio works on front speakers only but i can't get the rear speakers to output any sound (worked fine under windows). i installed the latest nforce drivers from the nvidia site which made little difference except stopping xmms working. i'm using the i810 driver. the snd-intel8x0 works too. nvmixer only loads with the i810 where as alsamixer only works with the snd=intel8x0. the volume controls work on nvmixer but when i try to change the speakers nothign happens and if i try to touch the volumes on the speakers tab it says "volume set failed".

so my questions: how do i get the rear speakers to work? why is xmms not working since i installed the nforce drivers?

on another topic: how do i get the scroll wheel on my mouse to scroll through the page on Firefox, it just operates as a back/forward controller at the moment for some reason.

some more info and corrections:

now, kmixer and nvmixer work with both drivers and alsa with neither, xmms is working with snd-intel8x0, speakers still not working at rear

i think maybe the partial improvement came from changing "threaded sound system" to "autodetect" on the sound settings and i also disabled the sound system in the same bit

actually, if i've disabled the sound system then changing to "autodetect" will have made no difference.... either way the front speakers are working, rear not, nvmixer is not being much use!
