Alsa libasound2-dev AV710 Envy24HT ICE1724! SOLVED
Hi: Fellow 64 bit users!
This is some what of a post for posterity, or those who are having
problems with alsa sound on amd64. I filed this bug report
Bug#383054 on libasound2 which solves my problem.
For all those AV710 Users out their who are having problems getting
sound to work with Debian/Etch you might want to upgrade to
libasound2-dev, this solved my mixer not found problem, and allowed
me to listen to sound.
I would also like to mention that I would advise you to make a
~.asoundrc file and follow some of the suggestions on this page.
After a little copy and paste I was able to get sound working with
the wolfson dac, it sounds great. I only have a 2.1 sound system.
So I have not tested every channel, but I must say this works well.
My speakers are a cheap creative set, this sounds great with music a
little fine tuning might be in order.
