This has to be supported by your alsa-driver, and that is *not* a "given".
For instance, it doesn't work with my sbawe64. (The fact that alsa doesn't
work at all with my aureal is a seperate, and suckier, discussion...)

Yep :-) I've only been (mostly lurking) on this list for a year or so.

I have been. I try to do as much as I can by myself, not only to keep from
being put in the kill-file of 1/2 the list, but because if *I* figure it out,
there is a much greater chance that I understand it B-)
By the way, is there a place that you, Charles, and Stephan hang out (irc?)?
That would be much lower-latency (ha! I kill me...) than the list...
I promise to document all questions I have, and their answers, and make
patches for the docs.* One of my major job descriptions at work is to write
"newbie docs", that is, faq's and howtos for people just hired into our
group. So I have some experience there...
*this is serious, by the way, no mickydee's reference here!
