Talking Ai Caramba!

IT WORKS!!

wow is all I can say. Finally! Alsa is the cure! I installed all the alsa packages I could find on the mandrake cooker CD's and then told KDE and XMMS to use them when playing back. Nforce2 comes up as 2 different devices under the alsa control in xmms. I had to use the second one and then *poof!* I could hear my Eisbrecher oggs playing! Guess I won't have to wait on NVIDIA's generosity after all

Thank you everyone for the ideas!

Well, from what I get, those guys are refering to the ALSA software people used to download. Now that the kernel supports it... wouldn't it be different?

Of course I will try messing around with my mplayer, xmms and KDE configuration... let's see where it will lead me

Thanks for now

The only differrence is that now alsa is distributed in kernel 2.6.
So basically its the same deal.

So... I should follow those guide lines and create those config files they describe there?

Sorry if I am sounding stupid, but this is the first time I "play" with ALSA stuff. I was used to compile the OSS support on my kernels.

thanks for the patience.

Oh well... I tried creating that '.asoundrc' file (put into it those lines I got from that site)... but I still can't get my 5.1 system to work

On xmms and mplayer it only uses the front speakers. I tried that "starting" line command to tell mplayer to use AC3 with 6 channels, but then the sound don't work at all

Again, I have an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe, which has NForce2.

Thanks

To get sound working with your nforce2 board, I suggest this page: http://www.wlug.org.nz/NForce2Notes

Thanks for the tip, even my having put my sound card to work as I wanted before reading your post, and of course, checking that site.

All I needed to have my 6 speakers "speaking", since I had already put my sound card to work, was to use something like this:

gmplayer -ao alsa9:surround51



Really thanks for your help, guys!
