audio mixing problem
i have been having the following problem with both debian and ubuntu.
for some reason, as far as i am aware, only one program can play audio at any one time. for example if i am on a website which is playing sound, and then i open up zinf to play some other music, it wont work. and so on...
i found this link:
however it has not helped :(
my mobo is a nvidia a7n8x deluxe with onboard sounds, nforce2 chipset
this is my ~/.asoundrc file:
add this to what you have and see if it works better
if all else fails possibly try nvidia driver and mixer
thanks for your reply
i have tried what u've suggested but haven't had much luck (been testing it with zinf playing an mp3 file, and firefox playing audio on a webpage which is a flash plugin)
i downloaded the nforce unified drivers from the nvidia site, however i cant seem to install them - i get the following error messages....
No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running
kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct
kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source
path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
sorry i'm a bit of a linux newbie, not sure what extactly i need to do to get this installed.
(btw, i am currently just using the ubuntu live cd until i get this sorted)
that seems rather self explanatory -- you can't build a kernel module without the kernel build directory
need to install kernel source package
let see -- if ubuntu is debian try something like
apt-cache search kernel
until you find it
ok, i have managed to get the driver compiled, but i am unsure about installing the module and getting it running. i have found the release notes here:
but they don't really describe what to do for ubuntu, which i am using.
