Re: Muting / Audio Levels
You know, that's one thing I didn't think to check (because I never touched the volume settings), but I went in and checked it. Everything is set to about 75% or so, and unmuted. I was listening to music as I downloaded the driver files, then I followed the instructions about changing my inittab to boot to runlevel 3, installled the self-install, modified my XF86Config to nvidia, removing the "dri" lines and adding the "glx" line. Remodified my inittab to boot to runlevel 5 and rebooted. The nVIDIA logo appears, and the graphics run very well now, but as soon as I loaded xmms to listen to music, the sound is missing. I tried rebooting several times, and even modified the XF86Config file back to the original non accelerated 'nv' driver with "dri", and the sound is still missing. I have changed it back to the new accelerated 'nvidia' driver, because if the sound isn't going to work, i'm still going to use the better video drivers. So, the sound disappeared during the installation of the drivers, by my best judgement... But I never modified anything regarding sound that I know of. I read some whitepapers on the driver, and found that some video cards have sound output for some reason, or something similar, but I have no clue about that, though the docs spoke of how to make sure the video card would output sound or something similar. I'm thinking that maybe the driver is directing the sound to my video card, which I know makes little sense, but could be a possiblity? I miss my music!
