I ordered a LINUX system from Dell and can not get sound out of it. I have Redhat 9 and an audigy 2 sound card.
Didn't work out of the box
Using the hardware browser I can see it (lists a SB Audigy manufactured by Creative Labs and "Driver: audigy".
For whatever reason my computer did not ship with (or my path doesn't see) pnpdump. I looked in /sbin/ and it's not there. I tried fishing through www.redhat.com
for a download, and failed.
I tried installing ALSA, but hit some walls with modprobe not wanting to insert things:
# modprobe snd-emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8smp/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8smp/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8smp/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o failed
