Do you still have 10.1 installed where the same card and kmix are

Errr.. nope. The only fully functioning Linux install I have right
now is Kubuntu 6.10. :-P But... I can check /proc/asound/cards there
and see what it produces (since it's all working perfectly there) and
compare it with 10.2. Can't do that until tonight though... they
don't let me ssh tunnel to my home computer from work. Sigh.

Also, I do not have the same channels showing in 10.2 as I do in 10.1 --

Interesting. In my SUSE10.2 install - YAST shows all the same
channels as 10.1 did, and as is shown in Kubuntu 6.10... so in my case
I never really keyed on this as a possible start into the problem.

showing. (So, the whole thing may be Yast related rather than KDE -
which one sets the kmix display?)

OK, but... if it's YAST related, then why does the sound card work
fine outside of a Window Manager? ie in YAST tests it's fine? In
your case, KMix is at least picking up the card :-) In my install
there's nothing there at all - although, that could be the same
symptom since we have slightly different cards.

The frustrating thing is, this error/bug has been around since Beta1. :-(

And if the results *are* different then we need to find out who to
badger about getting this bug fixed.

The bug owners? It is assigned... but not a lot of activity recently
on the bugs.

OK, forget about kmix - stick it up the jumper, it's bloody hopeless in 10.2 :-( . Someone stuffed up pretty badly in 10.2 with kmix.

Install alsamixer.

When installed, lick on LINE (the bottom part will go grey) and then use the up arrow on keyboard to raise the volume setting from zero to wherever you want it. But make sure that your external volume control, if you have one, is turned down before you do this :-) .


ADDENDUM to above.

Once you have set the line volume at close to its max. then start kmix because it will now work correctly and you will have the kmix icon in the (?)system tray.


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
