ALSA Surround for EMU10K1
I'm aware this topic is on just about every linux forum out there, yet I still can't figure out my problem
I use Slackware 9.1 with 2.6.3, compiled with ALSA and EMU10K1 support.
I can hear sound with no problems, and if I want surround sound, I just use alsamixer and turn up the WAVE Surround Setting to get the back speakers working.
Having done that, if I touch my master volume, it still only controls the front two speakers, as opposed to the wave surround as well.
Is there any way to link the two together? Is there a way to put my card into "surround sound mode"?
Looking in alsamixer, it says the chip is "SigmaTel STAC9708/11", which is a load of hooey since Im using an EMU10K1. . .
xmms is using OSS drivers, and ALSA ones dont work if I try them.
I don't know how much of this is relevant, as I DO have sound. It just sucks having to manually adjust 2 channels, with alsamixer at that =(
Am I just a silly newbie asking a question thats been posted 1000 times? =b
I know I have had this working before on slackware 8, but that was quite awhile ago now.
