sound in wheezy
running wheezy, 7.1
does anyone know the basic in & outs of sound in wheezy? Particularly the ionterplay between alsa & pulseaudio. is pulseaudio supposed to be the replacement for alsa?
ive been going round with 2 seemingly simple problems. 1-getting a login sound. 2-stopping volume level from being reset
to 0 every time i reboot.
i solved the vol level not staying where i put it by installing alsa utils & a couple other reccomended oss pkgs.
i got a login sound by copying /usr/share/sound/moblin/stereo to /usr/share sounds, which, i suspect, is not the proper
way to do it but found that solution by googling, & it works, sort of.
however, now when i login im blasted at max volume everytime.
ive got the usual /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play line in startup with a -V 1 appended.
canberra-gtk-play seems to have a lot to do with this & im not sure how pulseaudio fits in.
anyway, anyone know what else has taken over my volume control & maxed it out?
