Sound Blaster Live 24 bit 7.1 drivers


Where do you get the Sound Blaster Live 24 Bit 7.1 drivers for ALSA? I have seen instructions for installing (which i don't understand, so if I could please have help with that also), but I haven' t seen the driver anywhere.

Ok got that, don't neefd to recompile kernel, but the part with ./configure or whatever, what do I do there (i already had alsa drivers, utils, etc (no alsa mixer though)? but the important module ca0106 i think, isn't there.

when you say it wasn't there, do you mean it wasn't in the alsa listing of cards, or when you type lsmod you don't get that module to show up? try typing lsmod and see what modules you have loaded. if ca0106 isn't there try modprobing it
Code:
modprobe ca0106
if that gives you an error about no such module, then you probably have to monkey around with the kernel a bit.

the ./configure step is the actual configuration/compiling of the alsa packages.
Code:
./configure --with-cards=ca0106 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
just installs the packages and tells it what card to compile for.

im using fedora, it has Up2date, automatically updated everything, including alsa packages (all of them). Where would they be? And it was RPM install, not TAR.

hummm... well I'm not overly familiar with fedora, so I would guess maybe in /usr/src.

i am just following their install to a tee. I get to the part where i have to use bunzip to extract the alsa driver, and I am wondering if I have to do that through the console, because it isn't working.
