consequently, even with my amd drivers installed, i cant get alsamixer to activate my hdmi sound. the volume icon is worthless.
however, once i install pavucontrol i can then select hdmi output and it works great though the volume icon on the tint2 taskbar is still worthless.
the good news is the videos in the browser run much better with pipelight than with any other system ive run. ive always loved that about openbox. everything runs better. Even with hbo now using pipelight and flash i never use more than 9% of my 6 gigs of memory. I think that's rather amazing. Also the openbox is the only system i didnt have to use the spoofer to fool hbo now into thinking i was on a windows machine. No system spoofer installed and it ran so well. No sound mismatches no studdering. Just flawless playback in the browser with picture and sound.
I have installed the openbox 4.0 rc3 with the 686 pae kernel running on my a6 laptop with an external monitor since my lcd died and i use it as my desktop. it come with the apu 6520g 512m videoram on die.
