MSCW not run at first bootup

January 27, 2024 — BarryK

In a pristine new install of EasyOS, at first bootup the MSCW (Multiple Sound Card Wizard) runs.

MSCW is supposed to enable you to select between different audio interfaces, unmute and set the level; however, some people have reported that it messes up the sound, that is, sound does not work until after a lot of messing around.

Those people have found it best to not run MSCW at all; instead, just middle-click on the speaker icon, then left-click to bring up the volume.

I need to study the MSCW code and try and figure out why it isn't working properly for some people. In the meantime, a quick fix is to not run MSCW automatically at first bootup; instead, run this:


Note, EasyOS Kirkstone-series version 5.6.6 is expected to be uploaded very soon.
