I am having trouble changing my default primary audio device. I'm using Fedora 3 and trying to use my USB FM transmitter as the primary audio device. Yet when I change the primary device in the sound card detection to the USB transmitter, it does not work. Like it cannot save it. It just defaults to my internal sound card. I know the FM transmitter works as when I use the cat command to output to /dev/dsp2 it outputs sound, also when
I do a test using the sound card detection tool it also works, ie transmitting sound.
I applied the patches outlined in the URL below as well.
If this problem cannot be fix is there a command line program I could use so I can redirect sound a program uses. For example run realplay > /dev/dsp2 (this doesn't work I tried a few things) . So all sound from the realplayer goes to the USB device instead of my internal sound card. I don't mind if it simultaneously sends sound to both either...
Thanks for your help!
