muhser0, thanks

Geoffrey, this MSCW is intented to work like xorgwizard-automatic but for soundcards.
Besides the GUI, most of the code is to handle sudden changes
and possible issues with sound cards to ensure working sound on startup.
But that requires integration with delayedrun, mavrothal is testing that feature.

mavrothal, the logs show a correct behavior, but it lacked some code to
actually make it work... this might fix it.. please try again..
and don't forget to ignore the MSCW window and just play something.. sound should work.
Save session, reboot, MSCW should not pop up and sound must still be working...

After that, try the gui and report if it's if it's behaving as a user would expect...

0213 works as advertised.
Picks up the correct card and sound (including retrovol) works OOTB.
Keeps quiet on restart.
GUI works as expected also.
Logs attached.

I guess in its final form will not need to popup on first boot and can have the logging only in debug mode or when users calls it because the automatic mode failed or the user prefers another card.
When I user calls the GUI and a card is picked already as default the message at the top better say "Choose another default sound card" instead of just "Chose default sound card"

Actually, even retrovol could launch MSCW

This is the new MSCW, a GUI and command line utility, all in one.

New version, I removed some files found in the original pet:
1) pinstall.sh (renames alsamixer to alsamixer.bin and alsamixer.script to alsamixer)
2) alsamixer.script
and this:
3) puninstall.sh

Thank you very much for your MSCW pet, jlst! Preliminary tests indicate that this is going to be very useful to me, not to mention the fact that including a button for a report is a big bonus!

Cheers,

I see, rcrsn51! I think I will also start looking for a MSCW that does not touch .asoundrc . Let me check those from different versions of Slacko. In this regard, if you know of any (for Lucid), please let me know.

Take care,

I finally got to see the new "defaults.ctl.card" line in action and how it eliminates that strange wrapper script around alsamixer.bin.

Nicely done.

Hello jlst,

I noticed that when I turn my volume off before or during Quicksetup, your new mscw turns it back up to 75% again after the "welcometo1stboot" screen has finished. It seems to be this line in function start_proc of /usr/bin/Multiple-Sound-Card-Wizard:

Code:
alsactl -f /etc/asound.state restore

Since the volume is already set at startup, is this line needed to be run again? Maybe something could be added that says "if the user already changed the volume levels, don't reset everything"? Little annoyance but I'd like to squash it. Smile

Guys,
Where is the PET to download?

The improvements look good. I am still using v2.2 in Quirky.

Oh, I see, the PET has been removed, pending a rewrite. jlst posted in another thread:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=890159#890159

Jlst, the ideas look good, go for it!

I updated my version of MSCW, now it's fully compatible even
with Wary Puppy.

It comes with my custom /etc/init.d/10alsa.

Basically the most important thing it has is the Report
button which provides info that can be used to fix issues...
