No sound w/ Creative Audigy Sound Blaster Live


I have a 5.1 creative audigy sound blaster live speaker system set up in my room. I've been a windows user for a long time and just within the last todays have been on linux. When i tried fedora it automatically was able to give me sound. But since i made the switch to slackware im not able to. does anyone have any idea how i can get sound??

i tried the alsamixer to see if it was muted, i unmuted, but nothing came up.
please help!

thanks in advance!

ok, do not switch, problem is slackware does not load soundcards automatically (not a problem in my opinion) try this first:

modrpobe emu10k1

that shoudl work or give error (type dmesg and read last few lines after module load)

if that does not work u need to eather compile u'r own kernel (easy if u know ur hardware top many people blow it way out of preportion, first time ever in linux kernel compile was first thing I did)

or you can install alsa (alsa.sourceforge.net) I use it and it works great

well, there are many docs about it, google it, or go to www.tldp.org they have a large howto database and it is a good place to go for any kinda howto or walk through. also as a slacker you might go to www.slackware.com and click book and go to chapter on kernel compile, but it is slightly outdated and not even close for 2.6 kernels.

hey , about modprobe emu10k1 ( not modrpobe emu10k1)

did it work???

if it did, edit your rc.modules file
find and uncomment the option

#modprobe emu10k1

->remove the #

it will load the module everytime you reboot

Smile Fix for Audigy 2 ZS Platinum "no sound" found

Hi,
If it's any help I found that emu10k was loaded etc but play test sound produced nothing. Problem turned out to be resolved by running Kmix --> Switches and selecting the Audigy column.

cheers... Ian.
