Are you using the alsa packages that come with Debian or are
you using the stock packages? I'd like to try the stock ones
to use a card from Trident (it's Trident 4DX something) and
the only kernel releases that come with drivers for it are
those from the 2.3 series... :-(
I wouldn't like to use these 2.3 kernels but as I understand I
can't use the Debian ALSA packages/modules if I compile my own
kernel (can I)?
BTW, what are people's opinions on this card? I've tried using
it with 2.3.99-pre9 and its sound was terrible: *VERY* low and
if I raised it a little bit, the sound was totally distorted,
with the effect similar to clipping of samples. Is the sound
level of this card that low and do I need an amplifier? I
don't have the manuals of the card (only the card). :-(
Anyway, I thought that that was very strange and was hoping
that the ALSA drivers could be better.
