sound on Linux is really low


Okay now I know for a fact that Linux knows what kind of soundcard i have which is why this problem is really beginning to confuse me. when i boot windows i only have to turn my speakers up about a 1/4 of the way to get decent sound. but for some reason on Linux (im running RH9 if that makes a difference) i need to crank it at least 1/2 way up for decent sound and i cant listen to music nearly as loud because of this. any suggestions?

Not sure what RH or your given IDE/wm uses - you might try rexima or some kind of mixer or some kind of sound control option in one of RH's GUIs - you've probably got that set low. Crank it up and everything will get louder.

I have the same thing here. When running windows, The sound only needs to be on 3 or so, but whit linux, I have to turn it up to 15 to be heard good.

I've runned redhat 8 for a while, and now I'm running slackware 9, but the both have the same problem.

And turning the mixer volumes higher doesn't help (well, yes the sound will get louder, but not as loud as whitin windows).

Dont know how to fix this, though.(Not that I really care; I just turn the volume louder when I run linux.. )
