Yes, that did it ! Thanks, Taybin, I now have user-controllable sound on
my laptop. Another question: is laptop sound typically weak ?? I have
the mixer channel max'd for Volume and PCM, the sound still seems rather
low. Btw, I'm currently running the kernel sound modules. Among other
information 'cat /dev/sndstat' says this about my chipset:
0: MS Sound System (CS4231) (DUPLEX)
0: OPL3-SAx and AD1848 (through MSS)
1: MS Sound System (CS4231)
Am I correct to assume that I should be able to use ALSA instead, using
the appropriate modules (AD1848, OPL3-SAx, and CS4231) ? Anything else
to compile ALSA for on this machine ?
