what mixer for sound without alsa?


i'm lucky hearing some sound with the cx5530, configured it with "modprobe sb mpu_io=0" because alsaconf didn't find it.
but there is still some noise left, so i wanna set up the mixer-settings.
starting alsamixer results the following:

ALSA lib control.c:612snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

is there another way getting alsamixer started or possibly another mixer?

thx, tom

Try rexima.

Another thing to try --
move /etc/asound.state to a different name, and try alsamixer again.
