ok i'm trying to get XMMS to use ALSA to be able to send sound through both DACs. It works bothways for root but as a nonroot, it will only use DAC 1, and if i used DAC 2 it would just freeze.
from this thread
i found out that i can use [aplay -D hw:0,0 test1.wav] and [aplay -D hw:0,1 test2.wav] to output through either of the DACs, but i can only use [aplay -D hw:0,1 test2.wav]. if i used hw:0,1 it would just not do anything. without any parameters, it would do nothing, also. which is kinda weird because according to the thread (linked), DAC1 is hw:0,0 (which works with XMMS but not aplay) and DAC2 is hw:0,1 (which works with aplay but not XMMS).
alsa came with slack 9.1 but it wouldn't even work until i edited the sys line of /etc/group and added myself (choey). so is there more permission issues since for root it works fine but for a nonroot it partially works?
thanks for reading.
