Description Andrea Santilli 2005-06-20 14:36:04 EDT
Description of problem:
I thought it would be cool to have system-config-soundcard automatically
configure non-serial soundcards as shared, so they can't be kept busy by
processes. ALSA already allows this but there are still no configurators that
use this feature.
Comment 1 Andrea Santilli 2005-06-20 14:37:52 EDT
ooops I meant serial
Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2005-12-23 04:27:26 EST
Could you be more concrete? I don't know what you exactly mean with shared
configuration...and is there any serial sound cards?
Comment 3 Andrea Santilli 2005-12-23 06:13:52 EST
I mean there are some soundcards that don't allow to be used by more than one
processes at a time (for example when artsd is running, other non-kde processes
cant use the soundcard) but alsa still can do that at software level as shown in
this url:

It would be nice to have a configuration wizard that, among other options,
allows to do such a thing very easily
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2005-12-23 08:12:28 EST
If you mean dmix it's enabled as a default in FC4... (if you use the "default"
ALSA device, not hw or plughw device)
