It was supposed to be a hierarchy, Sound was the main option, then those 4 under it were drop down

Looking through these posts, it seems you guys have been working hard on this one and Tsukasa7 is so close to finishing this.

I took a look at the ALSA page:-
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...?module=ca0106

and the only thing you might have missed here is loading the modules after compiling them to quote from the above page:-
"
Now insert the modules into the kernel.



#modprobe snd-ca0106;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

"
So Tsukasa7 if you type in the above from the# as root in a console it might just do it... no promises though!

No, I already tried that, and it said it couldn't load it, or no directory existed or it couldn't modprobe it or something, i just remember it was an error, I have seen so many errors in that damn console I don't even know what it was lol.

OK. I guess we need to find out where you're at, so if you could type

#lsmod

and post the output using those neat screenshots we can see what modules you've got loaded already

Seems you already have the driver for your card snd-ca0106 from

http://www.linuxhq.com/kernel/v2.6/11/sound/pci/Kconfig


config SND_CA0106
+ tristate "SB Audigy LS / Live 24bit"
+ depends on SND
+ select SND_AC97_CODEC
+ help
+ Say Y here to include support for the Sound Blaster Audigy LS
+ and Live 24bit.
+
+ To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
+ will be called snd-ca0106

and it's a loaded module already, it should work ???

Try right clicking on Kmix, (the little blue speaker down in the righthand bottom corner of your screen) and choosing 'Show Mixer Window' , Then click on the 'advanced' button and play with all the settings a bit.

If that doesn't work could you post the output of

#lspci

That'll need to be done as root and will just list the pci devices your comp has recognized


Oh, and I forgot, where you changed to ALSA in the 'Configure Sound System' will need to be changed back to "Autodetect

Da Nada my friend.

The only thing that keep going through my mind is "look at that location! The lucky b******d is in Hawaii! Theres me, stuck in this bit of bloody miserable south coast UK".

Well Mandriva 2005 LE was actually just a rebadged version of mandrake 10.2, after "they" brought out connectiva. They stuck some limited re-branding on it too show the name change, but if you'd seen it, you'd have noticed that lots of the apps still had mandrake 10.2 on them.

Just looked at LQ's ISO's listing, and they don't show 2005 LE anymore, now it's being shown as 2006 Beta 3. I suspect that it may be worth a try. The hardware detection has probably improved, plus lots of other stuff.

Oh, and don't forget, you can always try the "tried and tested n00b/former windows user" easy method of getting yourself back to "square 1" (as opposed to ending up in "Room 101" ). Just reinstall over the top. That's what I used to do. Back to the start and try again.

One of the good things about mandrake is that it will detect any linux partitions and ask you if you want to use the same setup/location - then when it comes to installing stuff, you can either let it do it's own thing, make general selections or tell it which packages you specifically want.

then, when it's completed the actual install, and you get the installation summary screen, you can click configure for just about everything individually and play some. That's where you might find the easiest way of analysing whats going on with the sound card. Which, in theory, it should have detected and ask you if thats the device that you want to use, then which driver (if it offers you more than one) and I think theres an opportunity to test the sound there as well.

'Cos if it works then it's usually a case of unmuting and so on. None of the reasonably in-depth config stuff you're trying at the moment.

When I type in config SND_CA0106, it says command not found, am I supposed to be in a certain directory or have done anything previously, I also couldn't configure it during installation, it didn't have the driver it said.

Tsukasa7, linux is case sensitive.
I have no idea if the config command exists.
You may want to try as root if needed
config snd-ca0106

What is the result of using Kmix and nightoil other suggestions

Can you also please post the result of (as root)
ls -l /dev/dsp /dev/dsp0
lsof -V /dev/dsp

We never know, this might give us some clues
