Question How to make a sound card a Default Sound Card


Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd-ca0106
alias sound-slot-0 snd-ca0106
This is the contents of my sound file in modprobe.d
If there is an unclean shutdown it rolls back to onboard sound card HDA Intel ,how to make sure that this is the default card always ???


And one more weird thing is that whenever i am in windows and shut it down from windows only , I get noise in slackware and if i boot into windows and then restart and boot back again to slackware it works fine and no noise is there , i had this problem in my previous distro also(CentOS), i thought it was a bug in it

As root on a terminal type:
Code:
alsaconf
Select your card and let the script do it's thing.

Run alsamixer to set up your volumes. When you do that, make sure that it selects the correct soundcard. Most of the time it does, but just in case, you can do the following:

For card number 1:
Code:
alsamixer -c0
Second soundcard:
Code:
alsamixer -c1
Once that completes, type the following as root:
Code:
alsactl store
About the hissing sound, when you run alsamixer to set the volume control, look to see if any of the IEC* channels are enabled. If they are, just mute it.

Hope this helps.

you need to edit your /etc/modprobe.d/sound file. See this post, it worked for me

Thanks for pointing that out. I need to make a mental note of that since my box has two sound cards also (one on-board and an extra pci).
