Bea and Audigy 2 Platinum

Postby clivesay on Mon Jan 15, 2007 9:28 pm

My only issue when I first installed Bea is that my Audigy card worked on the live cd and then wasn't even listed after a hd install. I was finally able to get around that issue and had sound working. Mint wants to list my souncard that's disabled in the bios and set it as the default. Apparently, a recent update has now broken sound. I checked my device and my audigy was unselected and the onboard soundcard was defaulted> I put it back to audigy and rebooted but still no sound.

Anyone else had these experiences?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just an update that my Audigy Platinum 2 card is working. I wish I could tell you how but I honestly don't know.

I checked everywhere to ensure that the audigy was picked as the audio default. It was but when I ran alsamixer it kept showing Realtek. I went to synaptic and chose alsa tools, alsamixer gui and a couple other alsa packages. Once installed, I brought up the alsamizer gui and audigy 2 was there! I went to play a song and BOOM! there was sound!

I have no idea what happened but now my Audigy card is alive again. I've seen that Ubuntu in general has issues with Audigy cards so not sure that it's necessarily a Mint thing.
