Re: [linrad] Re: AC97 Sound card issues.
Tnx. Are you telling me that I SHOULD use Alsa?
Where can I get the alsamixer or gamix? The alsa.org page has been
down for a couple of days at least.
Also, is the dsp output from Linrad or supposed to be on the PCM
Should it be possible to run Linrad with 1 (one) AC97 onboard system
without the OSS software?
I got the impression from inputs on the Archive that it is possible
but perhaps that is not true.(??)
There is no problem in mounting another sound card in the system.
Looking forward for more inputs.
