My radeon sound card has given me problems with my previous debian install. From this, I've learned some changes I need to make which rectify the problem.
I've done the following:
Ensure etc/apt/sources.list includes 'contrib' and 'non-free'
debian stable main contrib non-free
Install relevant firmware:
apt-get install firmware-linux
apt-cache search firmware
apt-get install alsa-firmware-loaders
Ensure /etc/default/grub has 'radeon.audio=1' added:
When I open alsamixer from the terminal it defaults to the analog sound card which isn't being used. I need to set the sound card to the radeon hdmi one but don't know how.
There is no sound icon on this xfce DE under system settings!
