    Sound works kind of..........


    I am running KDE 3.2 on Mandrake 10.1 I ran alsaconf for an ESS 1869 sound card. The only sound I had was in the KDE 3.2 Sound System menu when I hit test. There is no sound when I hit the midi test. I have been experimenting with some games. All of the games produce sound. There are no system test or bell sounds and CD's do not play sounds either. Weird. Any ideas

    I think if its muted in ALSAmixer and in KAMix, and you unmute ALSAmixer, but KAMix is still muted, so the sound will still be muted o'r something;
