I have just recently upgraded to the 2.6 Kernel and the sound Is REALLY quiet even though every mixer bar on the Alsa mixer is set to full.
Intel Pentim 4 2.4 ghz
1 Gig of DDR ram
80 gig HDD
Gigabyte motherboard with onboard sound and LAN
NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti 4200
<---( yes i wish i had bought an ATI card)
Mandrake 10 RC1
Kernel 2.6the alsa mixer is set to full
the sound card is an intel AC97 one and i am using the Default alsa driver (snd_intel or something) i have used this card before with Mandrake 9.2 and it worked great (good sound) however now it is acting up. I can hear the sound very faintly and very crackly
even though all the mixer bars on the "alsamixer" program are 100% up.
like i said the sound works it's just so quiet i can't hear it unless my ear is touching the speaker
please help if you can,
