speakers and configurations


just installed 3 linux operating systems, red hat 7.3-suse 8.2 and libranet 2.81. like em all, though red hat 7.3 is sort of outdated when it comes to latest browsers, dektops , etc. my question is that can i somehow make my systems able to play out of 4 speakers. seems like i can only use two with the 3 installed systems. i like the sound that comes out of my linux rigs, sometimes think it sounds better than on my window xp rig.. is there a cofiguraton tool that i can use to get all 4 speakers or mine running?????

Have you checked out the alsa site for howtos. If I recall, there seemed to be a fair amount of help there.

Yeah, with the alsamixer, look at your surround settings, specifically 'wav surround' seems to have the best luck.

Cool
