How do I get pulseaudio to change the default sound card?


Hi, I am trying pulseaudio and alsa to work on chroot linux. But there's one problem, whenevr I install PulseAudio, it makes a non working virtual device by default instead of the YMU-823. So how do I get pa to change my default sound card.

What sinks are listed when you issue

Code:
pacmd list-sinks
?

Usually, you want to

Code:
pacmd set-default-sink [sink_number_listed_you_want_output_to]
which will forward further audio requests to it. To move the current ones to it, you'll have to see what's currently playing with

Code:
pacmd list-sink-inputs
to see the list of applications/ports that are using the old sink and then

Code:
pacmd move-sink-input (listed_sink_input) [sink_you_want_to_output_to]
to move those to the other sink.

Install pavucontrol and run it from a terminal.

Do you mean it worked before installing pulseaudio?
"non working virtual device"? do you mean the mother board sound device?
perhaps start blacklisting the sound devices (except the YMU-823 card).
