installed sabayon, but sound real real low

Post by [email protected] » Tue Aug 21, 2007 4:42

hi, i have installed sabayon on my toshiba A105 and i don't get why the sound would be real low, i can barly hear it. I wish it was as loud as it is in windows xp, but i don't know how to amplify it ... someone help, i really like this linux over xp, but i also love my music.

don't mean to sound like a noob or anoying, but where do i put the code into?
can you list some steps as in what i do to get to the code inputing window, '
i am totally new to sabayon, and i don't even know how to play dvd's in it, watch flash movies, or do anything with java
douse it have any options for the dual core CPU?, like if i wanna sync the two cores to run at the same time, becouse in windows xp i got a problem where one core runs at 100 % and the other idles and i can't seem to adjust for them both to run at 100 % or both run the application intead of one stalling the computer.

If you open up the terminal (its called konsole in kde) it should give you a prompt similar to this [email protected] ~ $ But with your username and computername, in there type

Code: Select all

su -     
((Then enter your password for root, it asked you when doing the setup, itll look like it wont show you any characters you type, but it is taking them))

Code: Select all

lspci | grep udio
then you can copy and paste it into here :)

that command will on its own print off all pci devices to the terminal, the | symbol asks your computer to send the out put of the previous command to the next one, in this case grep, which is a powerful search tool. with most linux commands you can type

Code: Select all

man lspci
for example, and it shows the manual page

As for handling the dual cores, it will automatically use both, and spread the load :)

[email protected] not sure if you want spam but might want to remove the @gmail.com part to your username using the control panel top left under board index as you might end up with lots of spam from anywhere keeping it this way.
