Alsa


How would I go about installing an onboard sound card with alsa. I am using gentoo and have installed alsa-utils, where do I go from here?

run alsaconf (you may need to su to root to do this. Detect your soundcard. Then run alsamixer to raise your volumes, then run alsactl store to store the volumes.

In your gui, open your volume controls and raise the volumes there and enjoy.

How did you install all the files? Was it via apt-get? The best bet is to go to www.alsa-project.org and find your card. Get the sources and compile them in.
