I'd kinds assumed that the onboard sound of this particular box was the culprit, have to turn sound right up to get anything half-decent, but a recent install of Linux Mint 10 on the same machine gave a much greater, clearer sound, at lower "volume" level, than the PCLOS install at full volume. This is annoying, and more than a tad puzzling.
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
Audio works in both, but is much better in Mint. Tested with Live-cds, then with full installs. Sound is def much "Weaker" in PCLOS, at least for this box. And no, can't add sound card to it, only PCI slot on box has the wireless card.
Anyone have any ideas/suggestions? Surely there is a way to improve this. Help?
Remember this, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

Let's share our knowledge. Otherwise, what's the point?
