two sound card
I have a soundblaster 128 pci and the onboard-via 82c686 ac97 codec.
I've installed "woody" with onboard sound disabled and sb is working fine.
1) re-enabled the via codec (sb-"emulation" disabled)
2) removed es1371 modules (rmmod -r)
3) succesfully "modprobed" via82cxxx_audio module
4) tested (sox --> play) some wave files...
...and everything works.
I would like to use the SB for mp3/mpeg (xmms, mplayer, xine, etc)
and the 82cxxx for other tasks.
Before I try loading both modules (?!), can someone tell me how do I choose
between them ? (assuming I can load both)
Do I need to make links in /dev and/or create any device?
(my idea is that some apps use /dev/xxx1 and others use /dev/xxx2,
or something like this)
Thanks in advance.
