Where is the driver located? Binary or sources?

I assume it is for 32bit and for VMWare.

I'm using VirtualBox. I haven't tried HD Audio.

Is the sound utility app connected to your nice volume adjust gui? I like the simplicity of it. And I like the idea of a Titlebar gadget for sound.

I can do some testing.

You'd better ask Aggressor instead. You might help him debugging/finalizing it, THEN, I can link it to my GUI.

Thanks for the tip. I'll ask Agressor if I can help testing the sound volume control. I believe it goes hand in hand nicely with the work deadwood is doing improving hdaudio.

On the subject of this thread earlier someone mentioned placing a Sound Gadget in the Titlebar?

I think it's a good time to think about User Gadgets for AROS Titlebar? More on that later. ;-)

If you think of it we already use Titlebar Gadgets even if we don't realize it. There are two defined areas: System Gadgets and Gadget Strings on the Left Side with the AROS System Graphic and User Gadgets and Gadget Strings such as Date & Time on the Right. The Depth Gadget is part of Standard Gadgets like Window Gadgets.

I envision a more modern full featured set of User Gadgets much like Mac OS X or like perhaps Linux.

If we make GadgetMenu a seperate app and copy it to WBStartup or in startup-sequence then double click on the Titlebar could activate the menu. I like that idea. No Prefs required. And I like the idea of a Sound Gadget in the Titlebar.

I'll demonstrate this in another thread. Thanks for your time.

Have a good day! :-)

Any working idea would be highly appreciated. My GUI would just pop-up somewhere on the screen like any other Zune-LUA based application, and I'd have simply added it to AmiStart on Icaros. But something AROS-wise (that would work also on any flavour of AROS) would be a far better solution, IMHO.
