Hi Debian!

I spoke to soon, saying that the migration to alsa was a piece of cake.

I have all sound, but no cd audio. I did have that with oss.

The cd slider does not show up in aumix nor alsamixer.

I googled for a clue.

libcdaudio is installed of course.

Anybody give me a hint?

To install alsa:
1. I enabled alsa and the card in the kernel but without modules.
2. I installed alsa-base.

That gave me sound. I forgot to test the cd, until today.

Maybe this helps maybe not, but I had a similar problem. Though I have
a "cd audio" slider apparently alsa has mistaken this for something
else since this does not change cd audio volume. I tried all of the
available ones though (and with my card it's a couple) and one of them
(I think it was 'center') actually changed cd volume. So maybe you
have the same problem too, in which case there is a bug.


Ng. I put them all at max and there is no sound.
I found a hit on a Spanish group of a guy who had the same problem and ended up going back to OSS.
