I've a problem with integrated audio hardware

beside all excuse me for my poor english.


i've an integrated audio hardware on motherboard Asus,
well known as Ac97 Via8233.

I've Linux mandrake 9.1, and use KDE.
Mandrake has found and installed it;
but, although I have regulated all the channel audio to the top (using Kmix and Aumix, and under the shell using 'amixer set ...'), I obtain a volume that is less than 1/2 of the volume I obtain with Windows (on the same machine, with the same audio speakers).

Is this a driver problem?
or are there other particulary commands to obtain a better volume ?

Thank you.

If you're using the OSS(Lite) drivers, try the ALSA drivers. If you're using the ALSA drivers, try the OSS(Lite) drivers. I believe both sets have drivers for VIA 82xxx chipsets. I've had good luck with the ALSA drivers on my laptop, which has a VIA 82c chipset. I have had similar problems with both sets of drivers on other hardware.
