Two sound cards: Which one is default?


I used to have only a SoundBlaster in my Mandrake 10.1 box. But recently I enabled the onboard sound as well. I wanted to hook up my headset to the onboard sound for TeamSpeak and Skype and use the SoundBlaster for everything else. But now the onboard sound is used as the default device everywhere (especially KDE). How can I change that?

Include index in the options line of /etc/modprobe.conf. Index 0 is the first card and index 1 is the second card. Look at ALSA documentation for an example.

if you are not using modprobe.conf the you can just alter alsa.conf
here it's in /usr/share/alsa
or you can just override default in your ~/.asoundrc
