    sound - 5 channel mode problem


    Hello,
    I have FC4 with a 5-channel sound card (Genius). I am also using ALSA.
    The problem is that in Volume Control Properties there is no 5-channel mode. Only 4-channel mode, so I can't hear the central speaker. How can I solve this problem? What can I do to hear all 5 speakers?

    Then, I want to have the possibility to control the volume of every speaker not only globally (It was possible in Windows). Any idea?


    Thanks

    open alsamixer and enable the channels you want. i don't think there is a way to control the volume of every speaker.
