I have real difficulties to set up my system so that I can hot-swap my USB audio card (Griffin iMic).
Though my device manager immediately recognises when I plug the iMic in, I couldn't get any sound on it. The USB card shows up in the alsa mixer, but no sound.
I followed this thread: http://seehuhn.de/pages/alsa and managed to get the iMic working as default device - but now I can't switch back to the internal soundcard. When I unplug the USB soundcard, I get playback errors.
The strange thing that happened when I rebooted without the iMic plugged in, the welcome sound splash played half the way on my internal speakers (!!!) and then stopped. From that moment on I can only get sound through the iMic.
I tried the
and then choose my default card with
sudo asoundconf list
, but no success.
sudo asoundconf set-default-card
I looked at http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php/Ho...evices_(Howto), but am simply not sure what to do with that information.
Please can someone help me to create a setup that allows me to switch between internal and external soundcard.
