I starting having some kernel faults with
220.127.116.11-1.rt3.2.fc9.ccrmart, so I rebooted back to
18.104.22.168-53.fc9.i686. Running without realtime was working for me, so
But as soon as I rebooted back into 22.214.171.124-53.fc9.i686, all sound
output was defaulted back to the motherboard speaker again. This was
without having alsa-plugins-pulseaudio RPM installed.
Okay. I've noticed that sometimes when things like this happen it
helps to reinstall the RPM and then uninstall the RPM. I tried that
but it didn't help.
Then I looked into the /etc/pulse/default.pa file, and went into the
### Load Audio Drivers section and put in this:
load-module module-alsa-source device=hw:1,0
and commented out everything in the ### Automatically Load Drivers
section so hal-detect wouldn't be used.
That helped some. But now I think I understand what is causing my
trouble. The motherboard sound chip is getting recognized as hw:0
(default), and the Audigy2 ZS is getting recognized as hw:1.
I think RealPlayer 11 is using hw:0 as the output, hence it's getting
kicked out on the motherboard speaker. In prior versions of ALSA, I
remember a program called alsaconfig (or something close to that) that
let you specify the order of your sound chips/cards. I would always
set the Audigy2 to become hw:0.
I need something like this for PulseAudio. Then some of these older
sound programs which always use hw:0 would be using the Audigy2
instead of the motherboard.
