what card is it, and, are you using alsa? the reason i ask is that many of the cards used w/alsa have some tips and tricks to get the most out of the card on the alsa page for the cards configuration, however, it's very card specific.

alas not actually I have been trying to figure out exactly which sound card I have from Via. I know its integrated. The funny thing is that when I booted into KDE I found the hardware browser and it said that it had no iformation about my sound card. Plus like I said I am a noobie and I have been having some issues with compiling the files from alas. I think I am just going to buy a new sound card.....any ideas on something that will be easy to install?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

to find out what card you have from a terminal type

/sbin/lspci -v

post the output here. i'm responding in this thread after your warning from the mods, only because the mod didn't close it. possibly one of them will merge your threads. hope this helps.
good luck.

To kind of recap. I have VT82c686 integrated audio card. When I finished my install I noticed that my sound was very fuzzy and low with XMMS and also after I installed Flash the flash websites came across really bad. I couldn't evne understand what they were saying. So I did some research and I found that you can add the dxs_support=3 to one of the lines in /etc/modprobe.conf
"include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist
alias eth0 natsemi
options snd-via82xx dxs_support=3"
Now sound sounds better with XMMS its not so fuzzy and trebbel-fied. BUT the sound is faster....A song is sped up at least 2 times from its normal rate, and Flash sites still do not work. I was going to reinstall the sound card and update the kernel from the information I got from the ALSA website http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrm...#configurealsa
I am waiting till I have a good long day to sit and work with it through cause it looks pretty intensive. Hopefully this information will help you out.

this is your sound card

Quote:
00:0a.0 Multimedia audio controller: Avance Logic Inc. ALS4000 Audio Chipset
Subsystem: Avance Logic Inc. ALS4000 Audio Chipset
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 10
I/O ports at dc00 [size=128]

this page from alsa should help

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...module=als4000

to explain a bit, the name of the card or motherboard chipset doesn't always identify the actual chipset of onboard cards. the list pci command, i.e. /sbin/lspci -v, lists the actual chipsets, so your card is actually an avance logic chipset. hope that helps, and makes sense.
good luck.
