Fedora Core 1 post install - sound card test freezes the machine
First and foremost, the dirty details:
Athlon XP 1700+ processor at 1.1Ghz
256 MB PC2100 DDR-SDRAM
Soyo K6VB (I think) Dragon motherboard
Creative SoundBlaster Live! sound card
OnBoard C-Media 6 channel sound
Alrighty. I just finished installing Fedora Core 1 but not after some heavy velvet handling of my machine, particularly in the sound department. I had had the onboard sound disabled before the first time I installed and in the post installation the SoundBlaster Live! card was detected with the emu101k driver designated as the proper driver. But when I went to test the sound card, (pressed the Play Sound/Test button) not only was no sound played but the system froze and I had to reinstall. I have googled for this topic and am turning up little in terms of similarity of my problem to those of other users. I have posted and am awaiting a response to a thread on the Fedora list with this same information. I am most frustrated because one of the only things holding me back from making a FULL transition to Linux is my ability to listen to music on my desktop. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance. I greatly appreciate it (and the Linux support community, in general).
