Cannot turn sound volume up....

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i have recently installed RedHat 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20-8) on my PC. So far, everything works great only i could not say that much when it comes to playing cd's.

I have a Sound Blaster Live card, which the system could still not detect. Still i am able to play cd's

Only i cannot seem to find where i may turn the sound volume up. I mean turning the volume up in KSCD is fine, however i have to turn up the volume of my speakers to almost the maximum in order to hear cd's.

Thus i have been searching every possible sound configuration program within KDE and failed to succeed in restoring volume to a proper level.

Isn't there some type of equivalent to the Windows>Control Panel>Sound Configuration in KDE?

or else a command that could possibly interact with the system's sound controls?

 

thank you,

JSK

i'd strongly suggest you download fedora core release 4 instead

 

redhat 9 is EOL (end of life) so not supported at all (in other words, using it on the internet means you are vulnerable)

 

get fedora 4 (which basically is redhat 13) from http://fedora.redhat.com

 

notice the 'redhat' in the url :)

 

have fun, we'll help you with your issues with fedora don't worry

 

PLEASE UPGRADE

 

cheers

hi anyweb,

 

thanks for replying. Well, i'd be lying if i said that none ever advised me to switch to Fedora core. Well so far i have been shy doing this move because i have made redhat my developping platform( i work as a professionnal web programmer). Only now, it comes very clear that the word EOL really does take its meaning :).

Well, i am even planning to install Fedora Core on a laptop which i haven't bought yet, and i suppose this is a wiser choice than installing RedHat 9 even, especially on a laptop where the hardware does not come as well supported as on a PC.

Nevertheless i have heard of Fedora Core already obviously and i am not really sure that i can use it in a professional environement without having to pay anything, could you confirm?

 

thanks a lot,

JSK

its likely that rh9 would support less hardware than fc4.

indeed fc4 is free to download, free to install, free to be modified, free to be destroyed, free to do whatever it is you wish to do with it.
