HDA Intel vs. Realtek ALC888 audio on one machine?
Looks like I'm a regular newbie around here.
There's one bit I don't understand since I built this new computer. It's almost as if the motherboard has *two* audio systems on it. The volume control applet in GNOME let's me change between two audio devices:
- HDA Intel (alsa mixer)
- Realtek ALC888 (OSS mixer)
So is this actually the same system only differently interpreted and called by OSS and ALSA or is it maybe that this system has two modes of operation or do I actually have two optional audio systems (which really seems unlikely). I'm just a bit confused about it.
I'm interested in this also because I still didn't resolve the problem of fuzzy sound in certain programs (including games) which makes sound less than pleasant.
