sound itself works fine. using alsa and using pulseaudio both play sounds.
but when for example i play a sound in amarok and then at the same time from a different source, steam for example - then the sounds are being played but very loud and distorted.
i thought maybe thats a steam problem, but its not, the same thing happens, when i play a sound in amarok and use the gnome sound settings to play a test sound.
my audio cards are :
00:01.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Trinity HDMI Audio Controller
00:14.2 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] FCH Azalia Controller (rev 01)
same thing happens when i play analog over headphone and also with digital optical output
i use kernel 3.18.1 with gnome 3 :
system is uptodate.
any help on this is very much appreciated, thats the only thing thats spoiling my gentoo linux experience atm
edit : switching from in kernel compiled drivers to separate modules made no difference
