I have a working sound system on my new "testing" system, by which I mean
that when I start xawtv I can hear the sound. I'm using emu10k1 with
Creative Live 5.1 Platinum.
However, I find that I am unable to play wav files, and I can't hear the
sndconfig test sound.
Is this is to do with xawtv having grabbed the necessary resources? If
so, how might I resolve the problem?
Or is it because the sound card needs to be re-configured, and/or the
driver updated? I tried using the emu-tools, but when I run emu-config -a
SOUND_MIXER_PRIVATE3: Invalid argument
and running emu-script says:
SOUND_MIXER_PRIVATE3: You're probably using an older incompatible driver:
If updating the driver is the answer, is there a way to do this with
apt-get, or do I need to compile it and install it by hand?
