This is really somewhat odd... I finally got Slackware 9.1 installed, and
o yeah! Works beautifully too, but the only question really that I have, is
i didn't install any of the gnome settings um, like gnome, or KDE or say
XWindows or anything... Someone told me that if I didn't have those
packages installed I'd be a slight bit limited, as I wouldn't be able to
use my aumix program for adjusting levels and such... Thus and
hince: leads me to my question: i was told to try typing in rexima, which
i did... That worked perfectly! the only thing is, when I started turning
everything up to a comfortable level that wasn't too blasting, I tried to
use mpg321 as I've yet to have the time to get mplayer but nevertheless: I
was playing, for those of you, who've heard it, Shout to the Lord by Aaron
Benward... it was so stupidly distorted that It? was? horrible!
i mean, OK, if i turned the vol slider up, it didn't do any good... I
found that by turning up the pcm volume it certainly turned up the sound,
but just boosting it to 2 percent, was enough to over distort... I don't
really know why either... spkr didn't do any good either turning it up or
down from what I could tell... Now, here's the really! weird thing: When
I turned up my mic, it wasn't distorted in the least! in fact: It sounded
r'r'reaaly good actually... i was actually amazed... i even used the rec
package and did a simple wave file, and o my lans!
Talk! about quality!
Anyhow though, back to the question:
So, the IGain or whatever it's called, didn't really do anything either and
the line1 only made things worse, too...
I wish I could show yall exactly what it's doing over here... ewwww, it's
aweful! trust me!
I think that video, CD, whatever that thing is that started with an f,
don't remember, I think those were the only 3 I didn't try as they appeared
totally obvious to not fix the problem...
Anyway, again, i'm on Slackware 9.1 with the 2.4 kernel... Was this a
problem with the Alsa project under there? I'm on an SB live Value, EMU10K1.
i don't see where that should matter though? I just need to fix this.. and
ya know what's even weirder? the fact that I used the play package to play
a simple wave file, and it went through and played flawlessly!
I'm kind a starting to wonder if this may be a problem with mpg321, but not
What would yall recommend. please don't say recompile the kernel, you know
i'm a newby and can't take on that task yet... LOL!
