Alsa / kde4 sound system messing with me!
Slackware 13.1_64, everything works like a charm,
every time my slackware boots up,
the sound system changes from one device to another.
So if I boot now, sound address is hw:1.0.
then if I reboot, the sound address becomes hw:0.0
It's really annoying, because every time I have to re-run xmms and mplayer setup to get any sound!
Also, if any program is playing audio (like xmms), other programs cannot play audio at the same time.
ie: if I'm listening music with xmms then I try opening some video with mplayer or firefox/flash, I get no audio on this video....
What's the deal with kde phonon? I thought it was supposed to be the new global sound system for kde4, like arts was for kde3. If so, why I can't choose phonon as my sound backend on xmms or mplayer setup?
It may be that your soundcard is swapping device numbers in alsa.
You could try putting something like
The above ensures that my intel onboard audio is always hw:0.
