onboard sound: via onboard chipset 82xx
soundcard: audigy 2zs
ok, this wasn't an issue up until about maybe a week ago.
i've got this weird thing now whenever i start up Totem where it says ...
ALSA device "default" does not exist.
and so i went to look a little further with alsamixer and i get this as a message when i type "alsamixer" in the terminal:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory
now i do get audio with mplayer, cedega, doom3, everything....
if i do "alsamixer -c 0" i get to configure the sound levels for my audigy2zs .
whenever i go to the sound card detection tool ihave my speakers plugged into m yaudigy 2 and when i press play test sound on the via tab, it actually plays a sound through my speakers (which means its not really testing the onboard sound but the audigy2). if i play test sound on the creative tab, i still get a sound (meaning again, its playing out of the audigy2 which is correct in this situation).
now why is it that the kernel is getting confused with the devices? it doesn't appear that the onboard sound even is recognized anymore to be honest, since in alsamixer -c 1 used to be my audigy 2 not -c 0.....
icould use some help here. anything would be great, i just would like to get alsamixer and/or totem to start working properly again. (alsamixer used to go to the onboard sound by default but since its no longer really there.. yeah)
