Re: a sound question

Hi everyone. I have a usb-audio-device (aka a skype phone), and a
couple of speakers plugged into my regular soundcard. I can get
sound out of either device separately, but not both. I feel that I
should be able to use both the soundcard, and the usb-audio-device at
the same time
I sort of remember seeing in the list a way by which more than one
"soundcard" can be loaded in the kernel at the same time. If your usb
device is "like" a soundcard, maybe this is possible for you.
If I recall correctly, the module lines were something like:
alias snd-card-0 snd-fm801
options snd-fm801 index=0
alias snd-card-1 XXXX
options XXXX index=1
XXXX represents the second module for a second "soundcard" to be
loaded in the kernel at the same time.
Do you think this would work for you? HTH.
Thanks Jose. When I first tried this, it did not work properly. But,
after a recent upgrade, I'm please to say that both the soundcard, and
the usb-device-audio (skype phone) now work.
