How to acquaint Linux with my sound card?


Linux does not recognize my sound card. I get this in the system log:
Jul 6 18:45:02 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
Jul 6 18:45:02 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3

Where do I start?

Regards,

Janis

$ sndconfig

or

$ redhat-config-soundcard
as I see you are running RH 8.

will try that next time ... I found the driver at

http://www.opensound.com/

but looks like they will be wanting money in not too distant future. This dual-booting could get expensive!

well i run rh8 also which picks my audigy no problem, so there definetaly shouldn't be a problem for an SBlive cosidering the audigy based cards were one of the last to get supported....
but anyways, thats weird, but you could always go get creatives opensource drivers for the sb cards and download emu10k1
and see if you get any luck with them..

Thanks, DrOzz from Sydney, Canada! Unfortunately EMU won't work because I have the Dell Live 5.1 card. At least that is what it says at the top of this page
http://opensource.creative.com/

Just goes to show you should never buy more than you need -- like a 5.1 sound card when you only have two speakers ... Anyway, sound is not the most important thing I want from Linux right now. And maybe, just maybe, someone will write a free driver sometime soon ...

Regards,

J.
