Thanks for the reply tricky.
I did what you said and I also found a post over at linux journal that said to try
cat endofworld > /dev/dsp
I definately got some audio out of my speakers. I could hear the music a little but there was quite a bit of distortion.
I also did the same thing with a few .au files redirected to /dev/audio but the sound was ALL distortion.
The rexima mixer program doesn't seem to have any connection with these devices. I'm wondering if I need a better mixer or the drivers just suck.
Oh, there's also this from the dmesg output that for some reason didn't get in my first post:
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: 0x4144:0x5360 (Analog Devices AD1885)
i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 Unable to map surround DAC's (or DAC's not present), total channels = 2
i810_audio: setting clocking to 41349
Here's the linux journal link for anyone else following the thread:
