Question Sound Blaster Live and SuSE 9.0


I recently installed SuSE 9.0 on my system and am getting no sound out of my Sound Blaster Live. SuSE detected the card during installation and installed the driver, however the sound just won't work. I checked the mixer and noticed that it was muted, however I'm still getting nothing out of the speakers. Everything works fine under Windoze. Can anyone tell me what could be wrong?

you've infected it with the windows rays of death, testing it you see.

what happens when you type:

echo /dev/random > /dev/dsp

do you get white noise?

Nope, I get nothing. I've googled for this for quite a while and still haven't found anything that helps.

its a driver issue. what have you enabled in the kernel in the sound section? modules or what? if they are modules, have you added them to /etc/modules?

I downloaded and installed emu10k1-v0.20a but didn't add it to /etc/modules (didn't know I had to... or really how to) ... if that's even what you're talking about. When I pull up the sound card in YaST it lists SB Live! EMU10k1 as the card and status as Running.

I just downloaded and installed emu-tools and when I try to run it from konsole it returns SOUND_MIXER_PRIVATE3: Input/output error.

Not sure if this will help or not, but thought I'd mention it.

Yep, I feel like a complete idiot now. When I checked the volume in KAMix it was unmuted and at full, however when I opened the KMix window I noticed that some of the lines weren't turned up. Turned them up and I now have sound!
