Cedar or anyone can you please help me too? I'm sorry but I really want this to work.
I have the same exact problem as the person who started this thread except I have an nForce 2 on-board sound. (Same problem did happen when I disabled that and used a Sound Blaster Audigy card instead). The SB Audigy is now removed and onboard is re-enabled. Fresh install of Mandriva LE 2005... (note that sound works in Ubuntu 5.04 and worked in Windows when I *used* to run it ). I am still kind of a newbie to Linux command line etc. so please be patient. I need help though!

Apparently I have no dsp file/folder?
