maybe this is a question for alsa, but if you don't mind i rather put my
problem here as well. i'm in continious trouble with my sound card. i
spent a lot of money on this rme digi96-8/pad. when i bought the card it
immediately worked like a charm with mdk 9.2. unbelievable. the trouble
started with mdk 10.0. i managed to make it work after several days of
searching. don't ask me how, i woke up, booted and to my surprise it
worked. never change a winning configuration you would say. indeed.
today i reenabled the onboard audio chip in the bios, booted windows,
booted back linux and yes trouble happened. just like the first time of
troubles, everything seems to be working fine and configured as it
should be, but i hear *no* sound at all. it's driving me insane. i mean,
i run xmms, mplayer, aplay.. they all do seem to play sound without any
error, only i can't hear anything at all. but alsamixer displays a 100%
volume output (with this card there is only 1 mixer, DAC) and when i
boot windows i hear sound, so it's not a cable prob. am i missing here
anything obvious? is there another volume mixer that i should try? i
remember playing with a console program to set mixer volumes, but can't
remember which one.

please help.
