View Full Version : Linux question on sound

I am using a onboard Via chipset sound and I am having a problem with low volume. I'm wondering if I am missing something in Mandrake. Any ideas

With Debian, the sound defaults to mute on the first startup; it also does this with Kanotix and most LiveCD distros.

Click open the little speaker near the clock and make sure the volume is up, then look for a mixer app; it might be turned down low there, as well.

Other than that, check to see which driver is doing the work...wether it is ALSA or one of the other types.

Good luck,

try running aumix from command line.
