AMSN and Sound Blaster Audigy Driver help...


I just d/led amsn, and the linux sound blaster audigy driver (emu...something or other), I have no idea how to install them. The readme wasnt helpful at all. I talk to many people on msn, and would like to be able to play music- unfortunatly im a dumbass and cant figure out how to install either of these.

I did attempt to install amsn, i extracted it to /etc and typed "make " into the console, i think it partially worked, cause now theres an amsn icon in the menu, except when i click it, it starts to load, and then closes. please help me...

the sound card driver should already be on your system, afaik there is no need to download it.

right, as for your attempt to install amsn, why did you extract it to /etc? i preume you are unaware that /etc basically holds 90% of all configuration files on the system, and is not for extracting programs to, ever ever ever, you should extract them to a directory inside your home dir, or under /usr/src/, but NEVER to /etc. anyway, i suggest you search this site for all the basic information, or look at somethign like http://sunsite.dk/linux-newbie/

also, i'd recommend using http://gaim.sf.net instead of amsn, and i'd also assume you're on mandrake, redhat or somethign very similar, in which case, for now use rpm files, not source files, it's much easier for newbies. if you've not got them on your distro cd's, try http://rpmfind.net

Yeah, i thought the sound card driver would be on here, but the sound blaster audigy is "not supported," so i d/led a driver (emu10k1) and need to know how to install it.

(driver site)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/emu10k1

the emu10k1 is definitely part of the kernel
