Question Default sound card


Hello All,

I'm pretty new to Linux. But I have Suse 9.1 personal. I also have 2 sound cards in my system. One built into the Abit motherboard, and a old Santa Cruz card. The built in Abit card seems to be the default sound card in Linux. When I go into the Yast sound card setup, the volume is up on both cards and when I click the test button on the Santa Cruz card it works. But no other program in Linux will play sound out of the Santa Cruz card. So how do I switch the default sound card in Suse 9.1? I would just use the built in card but I also use Win XP on this system and the built in card slows my FPS in games down.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If the onboard sound chip is a problem, why don't you disable it in BIOS?

Good question! Probably because I'm not thinking straight! But anyways I found out on my own last night how to change the default sound card in Yast  But now that you mention it I donít know why I havenít disabled the thing in Bios.

Thanks for the reply,
Wake
