This is my /etc/asound.conf taken exactly as below:
### /etc/asound.conf for nforce2 apu (analog out, from http://www.wlug.org.nz/NForce2Notes
and XINE DVD Player is able to direct sound to my Optical SPDIF to external amp, but NOT to my 2 Front Stereo Speakers. Weird enough, the GNOME-CD Player is able to produce sound on my 2 Front speakers but NOT to the Optical SPDIF to the external amp.
All things in /etc/modules.conf look just fine as mentioned in many threads in here.
I ran xine-check and every thing is noted as [good].
I have Win2K dual boot and it works justf fine.
This is my system:
FC2, ALSA 1.05
Gigabyte Nforce2 Pro2 Rev2
Thanks a lot.
Vive la Linux (!)
