Hey folks,

I'm trying to configure my ICH5 soundcard to get my surround(ish) sound speaker layout working. I'd like to have my sound on 4 speakers. The following command doesn't do anything though:

/usr/bin/ossmix mixext.rear2linejack ON
/usr/bin/ossmix mixext.spkmode SPREAD

(the values are set properly, but still no output on the line jack)

Is this a known bug, am I missing something or does my sound software need special treatment?

Thanks for your support.
