OESF Portables Forum > Model Specific Forums > Sharp Zaurus > Zaurus - Arch Linux ARM support
Install alsa-utils if its not already installed:

pacman -S alsa-utils

Then run alsamixer and use the arrow keys to find the channels called 'Left Mixer' and 'Left Mixer Right'. Highlight both one at a time and push the 'm' key to unmute each channel. You'll notice the two M's in each channel turn to green zeros to indicate they're unmuted. You can now push ESC (or Cancel on the Z) to quit alsamixer and run:

alsactl store 0

To save your alsamixer (audio) settings so they will be restored on the next boot.
Anyone who watched my Z vid and managed to understand what I was rambling on about may have noticed my comment on the headphone jack on my C3000. I only have one pair of earphones that have a connector that gives me stereo sound. All my other headphones and audio cables only get one channel.

I'm not sure if I used to get stereo output with the majority of cables and connectors before I took my Z to bits to swap the flash drive or if thats what caused it?

My Z activities have took a backseat recently because I've been engrossed in testing the latest git version of the MusE sequencer/DAW and generally giving its devs a tough time! They love it! smile.gif
