Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Whoa, okay weird, there are very few soundcards on the market that aren't supported already in the kernel, most of the rest of them are supported by alsa. You probably have the card's module onboard. If you got a link from the manufacturer to the "linux drivers" they're probably already in the kernel and ready for you. What's the card?
Well, was about to post new thread concerning drivers for Audigy 2, but there really doesn't seem to be ones. It did detect it, but it didn't have drivers for it.
If I cant find drivers for linux from manufactorers page, then is there any way I can get sound working? Should I update sndconfig?
sorry I missed you jumping onto this thread... a week ago, post back if that i810 is still bugging you, there are some issues with various versions of that chipset.
What's the /sbin/lspci listing say about the multimedia controller. Its easiest to look support up by chipset, not manufacturer, especially in the world of soudcards where sometimes they change the branding ever so slightly and the chipset entirely.
Both guys, do not fear to start a new thread. The odds of someone looking at a thread that's 5-6 posts in are rather slim because they'll think its already in process of being solved... so the only ones that are bound to look at it are the guys who have already posted and get their mail replies. I either of you would like to start a new thread entirely, I would not consider it double posting, feel free.
Unless this is a new revision of the chip, it should work with:
Then check your mixer settings to see if its un-muted, and if you're using KDE, the Arts daemon to see if it isn't flaking out. If it kicks out errors it might be a much newer version of the card, and then we'll have to track down the support on-line somewhere.
