alien Added comment about minimal alsa version to have dmix enabled by default
Line 5: Line 5:
 ALSA comes with a method to mix multiple sound streams which is called //dmix//. ALSA-enabled applications should be able to all access the device at the same time when it is set up. To do this you'll need to set up either a system-wide ''/etc/asound.conf'' or a ''~/.asoundrc'' file in your home directory. ALSA comes with a method to mix multiple sound streams which is called //dmix//.

 +<note>For ALSA 1.0.9rc2 and higher you don't need to setup dmix. Dmix is enabled as default for soundcards which don't support hardware mixing. Slackware 10.2 has a mix of alsa-driver **''1.0.9b''**, alsa-lib **''1.0.9''** and alsa-utils **''1.0.9a''** so I can't guarantee it will work out of the box. Slackware 11.0 howeverwill definitely not need the setup as described below!
