Fedora Core 2 - Sound Blaster Live!


Hello I'm new to the group and I would appreciate some help getting my soundcard to work. The O/S I'm running is Fedora Core 2 using Gnome. I did search through the threads but was unable to find a solution to this issue. I did post this in another thread but it was so far down the list that it may not get noticed.

Model [SB Live! Value] EMU10k1X
Module snd-emu10k1

Here's my /sbin/lspci
02:01.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs [SB Live! Value] EMU10k1X
02:01.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs [SB Live! Value] Input device controller

cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 e100
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-emu10k1 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-emu10k1 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-emu10k1
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd

I tried sliding the volume control from - to + but it drops back down to the -
When I shut down my system the sound portion is the only service that doesn't report as working.
From what I can tell the O/S is definitely detecting the sound card but I'm stumped on what else is required to make this work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards
Paul D

where did you get the card from? There are a few different chipset versions of the soundblaster live. For example, the ones that come with Dell computers use a different chipset than a "real" soundblaster. Most people have a great deal of trouble with the Dell cards.. Is this a Dell?

Hi myk

Thanks for responding. My pc is indeed a Dell. I ordered it with a SoundBlaster Live! I don't know which chipset it has though. I'll dig and see if I can find out.

i'm pretty sure the dell uses the CT0200 chipset. Do you have onboard sound as well? AC97 is fully supported. It wont sound as good as a soundblaster, but at least you'll have sound with minimal configuration.

I just pulled a nice Hercules Fortissimo 7.1 out of my computer and had to use the onboard
but at least i can hear

Thanks for lettimg me know about the chipset. I'm not sure if the system came with integrated audio. When I get home tonight I'll check it out.
This might be a stretch but one of our Unix admin guys at work suggested looking at the system bios and see if plug and play is enabled. If so he suggested disabling plug and play, then boot into Fedora.

I am having the *exact* same problem, except I'm using a HP Pavilion (Pentium II). Any ideas? Absolute Noobie here...

Never mind, I simply installed the card in another port, and it works *beautifully* :-D!

That's great. It's still not working for me. Maybe their's an IQ confilct or something. Does anybody know where I can view the irq assignments in Linux? I'd like to compare those values with the windows entries.
