Driving me nuts!!


Installed linux (Suse 9.2) the other night. Found that my internal sound card wouldn't work and my printer wouldn't work. Found out that my Epson EPL5700L isn't supported (fair enough).

I have today bought a new sound card (Soundblaster Live 7.1 24-bit PCI) physically installed it but can't get it to work or configure it. When I try to configure it, I get an error message

"The kernel module snd-audigyls for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.

Please help - want some sound :-)

Also, plugged in a different printer (HP LaserJet 6L), but don't know how to install this either???

Cheers

Steve

For the sound card the module is is the new kernel 2.6.11
<perex@suse.cz>
[ALSA] Add snd-ca0106 driver

Documentation,PCI drivers,CA0106 driver
Added snd-ca0106 driver for SB Audigy LS / Live 24bit boards
by James Courtier-Dutton <James@superbug.demon.co.uk>.

Signed-off-by: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>

I would e-mail Takashi,looks like he works for suse and ask him about it or you can see if suse has a rpm for it.
I will check on the printer,here it is

Im not that familiar with SuSE, but I think your supposed to install/configure hardware devices in SuSE through YaST.

Sorry, don't understand any of that first message. The card has automatically installed by YAst, but can't configure it

Really anxious to get it working please

really struggling with Linux at mo

I have a folder in my home/shughes/downloads folder containing loadsa codec files that need to be copied to usr/local/lib/codecs

The codecs folder didn't exist and i didn't have permissions to create it - after a lot of messing about I realised that I need to open a terminal, login as su and enter my password then do a md command. But when I try to paste all the codec files from my home/shughes/downloads folder to this new codecs folder - I get a not got permissions message. What am i doing wrong??

Try this;
Code:
su
<password>
cd  /usr/local/lib
mkdir codex
then copy whatever you want
cp /this/is/fun /usr/local/lib/codex
