Hello, i am running kernel 2.6.6 with an nforce2 motherboard, and i have ALSA and OSS compatibility built into the kernel. I am having trouble getting sound to come out of the SPDIF connector. XMMS works, but applications such as xine and system sounds dont work.

The xine FAQ says to change the speaker configuration to pass through but that does not help. Does anyone know how to get all sounds to go through the SPDIF connector? or atleast Xine. Thanks.
