  Controls      : 4
  Simple ctrls  : 2
Simple mixer control 'Luckit Clock Selector',0
  Capabilities: pvolume pswitch penum
  Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
  Limits: Playback 0 - 127
  Mono:
  Front Left: Playback 127 [100%] [0.00dB] [off]
  Front Right: Playback 127 [100%] [0.00dB] [off]
Simple mixer control 'Luckit Clock Selector',1

I would like to try mpdpup but I can't find how to even start getting a copy, never mind installing it. Any links please?

Hi all
At least succeeded to check my WaveIO USB board, my PC, my file share, my Slacko Puppy and get Alsamixer working with a little help from my friends. Thanks to all who contributed. I've learned a lot, but still more to come !

I'am going now to work on my mpdpup distro I could not get up on my first trials, with much more confidence, and try to compare with slacko and why not other distros in the future.
Next step : the remote (;-)

BR

It is the right place, Idolse the mpdpup developper is very helpful.
Just one tip : do not save the config file on another device than the one where your distro is installed (probably the SD or CF Card). It killed my first attempts

When I go into the console and type in a play-l, I get a list of the sound cards, including the USB device that I am using.

But when I type in

#!/bin/bash
# script to outout the audio sample rate from card1/0
# usage example: sr 0 1 (where 0 is your card of choice and 1 is the subdevice)

cat /proc/asound/card$1/pcm0p/sub$2/hw_params

I get the message 'No such file or directory'.

And I haven't even found how to change the output yet.

OK, sorry, I guess you need a little clarification.

Save the following to a file called "sr" in your /home/<username>/bin directory

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# script to outout the audio sample rate from card1/0
# usage example: sr 0 1    (where 0 is your card of choice and 1 is the subdevice)

cat /proc/asound/card$1/pcm0p/sub$2/hw_params
and then do a "chmod 755 sr" to set it executeable.

Then you can run "sr" and give it the two numbers (card # and subdevice) of the card you want to get the details on like this:

> sr 0 0 (with spaces)(for card 0 subdevice 0) (the $1 and $2 are inputs with the command)

Thanks for your advice MrSlim but I'm afraid that I've given up with Slacko as I can't even get it to load any more. I get the message

'Kernal panic - not synching'

and it hangs there.

Free is nice (and I am grateful for the efforts of those who create this type of software) but all too often it involves an unacceptable learning curve, and huge loss of time. I'll be waiting for a Linux version that works, and can be optimally set up via a user interface that doesn't involve knowing how to program.

As your first encounter with linux you chose a niche distribution aimed at very experienced users with very specific requirements. Your effort was going to fail from the very beginning.
