Unhappy RH9 Support for SBLive?


Oh no! just installed RH9 and it cannot find my sound card - a Creative SBLive card. It runs fine under XP without any additional drivers. I have checked the Creative site but no Linux support - anyone come across this? is there a generic driver I can use?

TIA - once again....

Paul.

The sb live should work with the emu10k1 driver, and i can't really imagine that it doesn't come with redhat 9 (i know my card worked back with redhat 8)

And creative does support open source, the following site with information about sound blaster drivers is hosted by creative:

Thumbs up

OK - thanks will try that. The play test fails when I installed RH9, I thought it odd also but knew there'd be an easy answer.

My ignorance on the second point, went to creative.com, went to support picked the region & product, picked Linux and got this "Sorry, no Creative updates are available for the selected product. " - thanks for the link.

Exclamation

Is there a simple way? I've never compiled before and this looks kinda tough and prone to error (my own)

redhat 9 really ought to come with it. I can see here that the only redhat machine i have access to, redhat 8, comes with it.

try this as root: modprobe emu10k1

If it doesn't fail, you can try if you can use sound. If you can, it is merely a question of actually setting it up correctly.

Unhappy

[root@paulhat etc]# modprobe emu10k1
bash: modprobe: command not found

Do I need to be in any specific dir?

modprobe is usually located in /sbin, but it should be in roots path. If you used su to become root, then remember to type 'su - root' or just 'su -'. the - is important. (without it, roots login files won't be run, and things like the correct path wont be set)

try this as root:

echo "/sbin/modprobe emu10k1" >> /etc/rc.modules
chmod a+x /etc/rc.modules

now it should load automatically after a boot. strange that redhat can't detect the card, it is totally standard.
