getting there...

I bought a new soundcard last night. My old one came with my computer in 1997, so it was getting up a bit in years and I couldn't find any up-to-date support for it. Since they're cheap and pretty standard, I picked up a SB Live!. Installation was a breeze. I stuck it in, compiled the right kernel module, modprobed it, and there it was. The mixer shows 32 elements with volume sliders. I have no idea what most of them are.

It'll be good to have sound out of my computer again. I was getting kind of lonely without it.
