    Question PC Linux OS 2009 Media player


    Hi, all.

    Now, as a new to linux person I thought I would try a distro that makes the transition pretty smooth.

    But, I have already found a problem. PC linux OS 2009 looks good, feels good, but when I play any media through Amarok or video through any of its media players, there is no sound.

    I made sure that it wasn't muted, and I turned all areas of the PC up as high as they would go, but nothing.

    Does anyone know what's happend, and better yet, how to fix it.
    Thanks

    Is system sound ( e.g. Login and Logout sound ) working?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Open a terminal and type
    Code:
    alsamixer
    Make sure your channels aren't muted or low.

    Is PCLinuxOS 2009 using KDE4 yet? If so, under System Settings...um, Multimedia, if I recall, there is an option to set the sound card to be used for various things. Last time I checked in on KDE4, I had to change from 'default' to my actual card name.
