getting ALSA working
I believe I took all the steps I needed to configure ALSA, here's what I did:
The problem is when playing xmms, there was no sound, and the beeps in the console were louder. I'm not 100% sure what needs to be muted and what doesn't in alsamixer. I basically have a laptop with 2 speakers, a head phone port, a built in microphone, and a microphone port. I tried unmuting alot of stuff, and raised the volume about 3 bars, but the only thing I seemed to make louder was the console beeps, which I would like to get rid of.
So basically I have 2 problems: I would like to know what I need to unmute to hear sound out of my speakers and headphone, and I would also like to mute my console beeps.
Last thing, am I right that the console beeps aren't actually coming from the speakers, but something else on the motherboard?
Thanks in advance.
