no sound with RH8.0 and Creative SB16 PNP:Audio
I have recently installed RH8.0 on my machine, which also has win2000 installed. My sound works fine in Windows, however, when I start Linux, I have no sound. I have no Sound Events, and no Audio from my CD. I went to sound and video-> volume control and got the following message:
"I was not able to open your audio device. Please check that you have permission to open /dev/mixer and make sure you have sound support compiled into your kernel."
If this wasn't part of the installation, then I haven't done it. Under Hardware Browser it shows:Creative sb16 PNP:Audio, but under Device it says N/A, but when clicking System Tools->Soundcard Detection, it says "No soundcards were detected." Can anyone help me configure my sound card? As I am a newbie, can you please explain in depth? Thank you.
