    When I download these files (I only tried the first one, admittedly), I get no sound at all in fact, except the click when I start playback and when it ends. Is that the symptom that you were referring to?

    ok here is what I did.

    when you start playing files yes you only get a click. But there are severall different thingies(I had no idea on what to call them) in the mixer pannel. when i turn up pcm I get the buzzing sound. Im thinking that its the via built in sound card which is a piece of crap. but anyway just mess with your mixer panell while playing the file and you should get the buzzing sound. If you downloaded all the file try out sample or sample3.

    Well, it does indeed seem that it's reading from the wrong channel. You might have to set your recording options in the mixer, so that it is recording from the sound input.

    I know that recording is tricky. Sometimes (like now) I can't get it to work either, seemingly whatever I set my mixer levels to. I just can't seem to remember what is necessary to make it work.

    I'm not sure just what you mean. XFree86 doesn't use a sound card at all, whatsoever.

    Ok I fixed the problem It was alsa. I went to the site and downloaded the new alsa 1.1 instead 1.1rc2. Now it works great. What I said above was exactly what I meant to say. What I meant is how do I get gnome to use alsa instead of oss. But i fixed that. Now ill see if i can record sound with everything else.

    GNOME simply doesn't use ALSA, and there's really nothing you can do about it, except rewrite esd yourself to add ALSA support. However, if you compile the OSS compatibility modules for ALSA, that shouldn't be a problem.

    Gnome plays music fine now. My question is this I now have a mixer for 3 different cards.

    snd-via82xx
    snd-bt87x
    snd-ens1371

    what I need to know is what device is connected to the bt87x. Thats the audio for the tv tuner card.

    It was a while ago since I tried ALSA, so I don't quite remember the exact paths. However, I believe that you should be able to find what sound card is connected to which device name if you look in some file in /proc/alsa.
