* A notebook with working loudspeakers but failing headphones – as
soon as the headphones are plugged in, there is no sound. This
is most likely a hardware problem since it happens with Windows
* A small USB audio adapter which is properly recognized by
openSuSE (this is, by ALSA).
I now want to have this behaviour (which is independent on the
hardware failure; I believe that such a behaviour would be beneficial
* As soon as I plug in the USB audio adapter, the whole system
should use it instead of the built-in sound system. Of course,
as soon as a remove it, the built-in sound system should be used
I was told that PulseAudio might be a solution (I've never tried it
yet). How can I do this?
