every since I've saddled onto SL5.5 I am having one problem with my microphones, so I have a few questions, some of them may not belong here, forgive me if I don't put it into the newbie area.
I read the older threads about alsamix and pulseaudio:
I managed to find out why my mic would stop working after a reboot.
I have to save my alsamix with the command "alsactl store". I was trying to use the following blog:
http://linux.dsplabs.com.au/alsamixer-a ... tings-p29/
My questions is about using ROOT to store my alsamixer settings, I don't quite understand the sequence, can someone help me?
When I am logged in as a regular user (that was my first thought) I launch alsamixer and change my Input Source from MIC to FRONT MIC.
So next I press EXIT, correct?
Then I have to sudo :
Code: Select all
[email protected] ~ $ sudo alsactl store
We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.
Password: ..................=> here I try my ROOT password
Sorry, try again.
No protocol specified
xcb_connection_has_error() returned true
Did I do something wrong starting alsamixer as myself?
Next question, when I login as ROOT and run alsamixer as suggested in the first thread:

Firstly, I made sure that the ALSA side of things was configured correctly by using the alsaconf command followed by the alsamixer command, both done as the root user in a Konsole/Terminal window.
then why don't those settings override my private session settings? Which take precedence?
Also when I use "su -" and "alsactl store", which settings are saved, ROOT and All Users settings, or just ROOT?
In the end, how to properly save the alsamixer settings?
Thanks in advance.
