How to switch beetween sound cards ?
 
Hi,


I have two sound cards. One sound card came with my motherboard. I bought the other in order to connect 5.1 speakers.

Long time ago, I was using alsaconf to choose witch sound card I wanted to use. And I was able to switch between the 2. And it was working pretty well.

I didn't really touched it for years.

Unfortunately I had to reboot (with a new kernel etc.), and now the sound is displayed on the internal chip (on the mobo). How can I tell alsa to use the other sound card ?


Is there a way to do this without a reboot (someone suggested to change settings in BIOS, but well...).


Thanks for your answers.

After posting the previous post, I saw this tread in the related threads : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-lenny-743016/

Long story short, I'm not sure what I did (:/) but it works now.


Maybe it was the modprobe run once again.



I hope this won't fail again...


Sorry for the noise.
