Where did you go to for the driver? RH by default auto configured my card. It's a SBLive, but uses the same module, so I would think it would be the same for the Audigy. This is the homepage for Creative Opensource. At the top is a link to the emu10k1 Project Page. Any luck yet?

The easiest way is to reinstall 7.3 which should include emu10k1.

Me too. SBLive cheap-o. Same driver. No prob. I find it not as loud as my Windows driver, however.

go to http://opensource.creative.com
download the source and unpack it into /usr/src
as root:
cd into the directory you just unpacked
type less README
follow intructions there build the driver and all the tools
after that is all done type modprobe emu10k1
if you are using X, it is a good idea to restart it (mostly for kde).
you should have sound.
you can use the audigy-script to fine tune your card settings, it is included with the driver.
good luck, have fun.

Sick of seeing stupid link to emu10k1

I've searched far and wide for help getting my audigy card to work and everyone just seems to post links to the emu10k1 drivers and think they're the win. I have installed those drivers (by the way SBLive and SBAudigy are quite different as the Live is supported and the Audigy is NOT) as best I can. THat's just it though. One must change a config file in the emu10k1 directory after unpacking and enter the path to the source code...I didn't seem to have the source code sitting around so I downloaded the kernel again and entered the path to it. Make might work depending but make install still doesn't work. I've added the alias that is mentioned in the README file and still nothing. Running sndconfig after all this simply informs me of what I already know. The audigy card is not supported. Has anyone actually gotten their audigy card to work? I say again their AUDIGY card not a LIVE card. If so please email me or leave a post as I can't for the life of me figure out what could be wrong.

I'm really new to linux having just installed it the other day, I am using the SUSE 8.0 distribution, I think this has the emu10ksys driver installed during setup. My Audigy is working fine, except I can't get it to play through my digital speakers, though this is probably a configuration issue.

I don't know how different Suse and Red hat are, but maybe this helps.

Mmhmm

THey're different enough actually. I've also heard that mandrake 8.2 supports it from start up too. Redhat 7.3 wasn't made with support for the audigy card though. Unfortuneately you have to add it yourself. There in lies the problem.

modprobe emu10k1

or

modprobe emu10ksys

If you can't get sound at all on analog speakers, do

chmod 777 /dev/dsp

What?

I don't know where you were going with that JB. The device doesn't exist. Doing a modprobe just informs you of this fact. I don't know what that last thing was but after entering it no error message was returned. Of course there still is no sound coming out of my computer and the Audigy sound car is still unsupported in sndconfig. Does anyone actually have one of these cards and redhat 7.3 AND has it working?

Post about the analog digitial issue.....

Features not (yet) supported
--------------------------

-Some OEM cards share a common jack for analog and digital output only work
in analog mode (these are common in Gateway machines).

maybe your machine has this ?

I'm using analog speakers

Definitely a software issue with Redhat. I thought I was getting somewhere yesterday but even after installing the kernel source off disk two, make config in the kernel directory, pointing the config file in the emu10k1 folder to the kernel source, and then getting through make and make successfully when I go to make install it gives up an invalid symbol error.

Success

Used grub to startup using the same kernel as the one on the install disk

installed the kernel off the disk and 'make config' in that directory

changed the emu10k1 config file to point to the kernel

'make clean' in emu10k1 folder

'make' 'make' 'make install' 'make tools' 'make install-tools'

'sndconfig' should now recognize the card

unplug microphone because it was acting as a pick up and was feeding back

re login and should be able to play stuff now
