#18 pcm volume control doesn't work  Edit

mixer (4)

PCM volume control on my card doesn't work. Whether pcm
is set to 0% or 100% doesn't make any difference. It
used to work with earlier versions of the driver, but I
cannot remember since when it broke.

I've got a Platinum 5.1 card with Livedrive IR. I'm
using the driver from CVS from today (29.3.).

Additionally the emu-dspmgr program does not work:
17:47 kiza@kiza /usr/src/emu10k1/utils/mixer> ./emu-dspmgr
SNDCTL_COPR_LOAD: Invalid argument

The program is from the same tarball as the driver I'm

I haven't looked into this for a while, but I have no
idea what else to try.

    Have you tried the latest drivers in may? Does it still do
    it? I haven't had this issue.

    I can't remember what the last driver version was I used. But since I
    couldn't get it to work, found no other info on this problem and didn't get
    any replies I've switched to the emu10k1 alsa driver.
