I'm now searching for over 6 houres to get my surround outputs to work I have a Gigabyte GA7N400 PRO second revision. I downloaded the nforce native drivers from the nvidia site ... ran the install as root of course. The settup set he had to rebuild a kernel module ... and then said he was finished and I had to look in some doc file (/usr/share/doc/nforce/ an html file) In that html file a lot of info on the NIC driver and nearly nothing about the sound driver ...
(driver version: 1.0-0301)
However tried a reboot and stuff off course no effect (it is a linux
) so I tried having a look at my sound system and it seems to be using alsa ... and i have no clue how to change it to oss ... I have sound but only on the front speakers ... MicSwap dus nothing...
So I started the nvmixer application ... it started without any problem (so I supose my setup has ran just fine) but when clicking the volume of the surroundspeakers I get this error:
volume set failed
when I try to mute something ...
Mute bit failed
So I started searching the web for a few houres ... well nothing found ... does someone have a clue or a direction on where I can find a solution ... it's the only thing that isn't working on my machien...
some extra info from the tech specs of my mainbord
