I am having a problem with sound in gnome. I have a Soundblaster Live Value that I have used for 2 years or so. I've never had a problem with it until I installed Slackware 10.1 and here is the problem I am having...
alsconf, alsamixer run fine, although alsamixer is not showing all the possible options that I generally have with this card. I am mainly looking for capture setting which is not an option. The next issue I seem to have is gnome does not recognize any soundcards are available. KDE (which throughly disgusts me) recognizes the sound cards and sound works.. but still no capture option.
I remember in previous installs, the gnome volume control always listed TWO mixers one labeled as OSS mixer one labeled as Soundblaster, or similar, the OSS mixer had the limited options, like I am seeing with alsamixer, the soundblaster listed all of the options that i currently no longer have.
Does anyone have any ideas what I might need to do?
