suse 9.1 setting default soundcard


hi,

I have 2 soundcards in my box, 1 is onboard and 1 is a SBLive! card. I use both soundcards in Windows XP and for the moment I don't want to disable the onboard one via the BIOS until absolutely necessary.

How do I tell Suse to use my SBlive! over the Via onboard card as the default?

thanks.

great, we're back to having to know DMA and IRQ I was hoping for a KDE type answer but ah well. Looks like another 3 hours of learning for one simple thing

..reminds me of using a computer in 1994.

Well, if you prefer GUI.. No Problem at all!!! At least with SuSE. Try following

Log in as root (in KDE)
Start the YAST Control Center.

(e.g. open a console window and type: yast2
then press enter)

Select "Hardware" from the left List and then the "Sound" Icon from the right frame of the YAST Window.

The SuSE YAST Sound Configuration will be started.

You will see the configured Sound Cards.
The Cards are numbered 0, 1 etc.

You shall see both cards. Remember what values and names are displayed for the cards.

If the cards are in the wrong order, delete both of them and then add them in the order you want to have them.
Card #0 is the default card.

If you see only one card then configure first the other. After this is OK then you are sure that
both cards can be accessed. Then procede like above described, so you have both cards in
the right order.
