Question Alsa, emu10k1 and flash


Eversince I installed the 2.4.22 kernel on my Slack 9 system the module for my Audigy 2 soundcard doesn't work anymore. I tried both the stock emu10k1 module and the one from opensource.creative.com. In both cases "modprobe emu10k1" returned no errors, but I didn't have sound either.
So I installed Alsa and the Alsa snd-emu10k1 module. Now everything works, except for one annoying thing: I don't have sound in Flash-movies. Before, I was using the stock emu10k1 module and everything worked great. Does anyone have any bright ideas on this?

Thanks in advance!

Don't have one... Could it be you just isolated the problem?

I haven't seen mention of such a file in any of the docs I've read, by the way.

You will have to re-install alsa and video drivers when upgrading a kernel.

I did that. I recompiled the Alsa driver, Alsa lib and my Nvidia driver. It all works accept for that little thingy I stated in my post...

I use the CVS version of alsa, so maybe my installation is different. My file:
Code:
# Set your card type on the next line so that loading the
# kernel module works correctly.
#
# Accepted values are 'emu' and 'audigy'
#  use 'audigy' if you have an audigy based sound card,
#  otherwise use 'emu'
#
# Note: you should only have to set this if:
#    (1) the auto-detect script fails
#        - no lspci support
#        - no /proc/pci support
#        - the kernel just plain doesn't like you
#    (2) you like to set everything
CARD_TYPE="audigy"

##
## This file is used to configure emu10k1's emu-script
##

CARD_IS_5_1=no
USE_DIGITAL_OUTPUT=no
ENABLE_TONE_CONTROL=yes

# Note, it's safe to say yes to the next option even if you're not going
# to use it. When this option is enabled, the driver can autodetects AC3
# data and behaves normally with normal audio.
# (Saying yes causes some of the soundcard's resourses to be used up)
AC3PASSTHROUGH=yes

# Change this to yes to enable the Livedrive midi port and IR remote
# control.
ENABLE_LIVEDRIVE_IR=no

# Most Lives have their analog front signals inverted. If you have
# problems with your setup (low bass), try changing this to 'yes'. (This
# option has no effect with digital setups)
INVERT_REAR=no

#Multichannel playback (for 4 - 6 channel setups)
MULTICHANNEL=yes

# On 5.1 cards in multichannel mode, should the multichannel data be fed
# to the sub as well?  You probably don't want this if you have a
# speaker set like the DTT2200 which already feeds all channels to the
# sub in hardware.
ROUTE_ALL_TO_SUB=no

# By default, the front analog channels have a +12dB boost applied to
# them by the AC'97 mixer. If you encounter clipping, or find that the
# volume of the front speakers is too high in a multichannel setup, try
# changing this to 'no'.
ANALOG_FRONT_BOOST=yes



# Surround
##################

# Some wavs, or mp3 are surround sound encoded the next two
# options can be used to decode these in hardware.
# (select on or the other, not both)

# passive matrix surround decoder
SURROUND=yes

# Active matrix surround decoder
PROLOGIC=no


# Extra Inputs
#################

## This connector is mounted on the card itself
ENABLE_CD_Spdif=yes  # Volume control is 'Digital1' in aumix/gmix/kmix

# The next four inputs are found on Livedrives, some of these may also
# be inputs on the older add-on daughter cards.

ENABLE_OPTICAL_SPDIF=no # Volume control is 'Digital2'
ENABLE_LINE2_MIC2=no    # Volume control is 'Line2'
ENABLE_RCA_SPDIF=no     # Volume control is 'Digital3'
ENABLE_RCA_AUX=no	# Volume control is 'line3'

I just did some additional testing. If I log in as root and try to watch a flash movie, I do have sound. So I guess I've got some kind of permissions issue. Now to find out where

Thanks a bunch for your time!
