I’ve added a pci-e sound card to my system as a secondary audio source (the primary one is onboard) in order to specify what audio output from games in OBS should be streamed, and what audio should not be streamed but still go to my headphones. The idea is that I want to be able to stream games but still listen to YouTube.
On Windows, you can add virtual audio devices, and that works well for ignoring the YouTube audio feeds, but since its a virtual sound device I can’t hear it either.
So after adding the second sound card, Linux boots up fine. Sound works fine coming from the onboard audio. As soon as I try to play a sound through the second card, my computer reboots.
How can I tell what is causing the crashes in Linux when I’m utilizing the second sound card?
