SB live 5.1 only rear speakers+sub working
I recently installed kubuntu 6.10 to dual boot next to windows xp, on a seperate hard drive though, it detected two sound cards and the wrong was set to default so after a struggle I made a change in bios to disable the integrated card. But then I noticed that I can only hear audio from my rear speakers. I have a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Player.
I got to wonder why it was like that and tested all of the available volume levels in alsamixer, still didn't work. The rear speakers still worked when I muted the "Master" channel.
Nevertheless I decided that ubuntu is no good distro and got to windows to find another distro, I was going to try opensuse when I noticed that the front speakers are out of order in windows too...
I uninstalled the drivers and let windows install my card on its own, still I can hear audio only from rear speakers and subwoofer. I tried to search every mute knob and volume setting I could find but they were all in the right position.
This seems to be not just a linux problem anymore, but since kubuntu started it, maybe it can also solve it... Or some other way, I just want my speakers back.
