Soundblaster Live 24bit not working in - Debian 3.1


Hi,

I just bought a Soundblaster Live 24bit card and installed it. I've got it setup on Windows XP using the SB drivers etc, but cant get it to work on Debian 3.1 Sarge.

I've gone to the ALSA website and installed everything they said to, but when I get to the "alsamixer" command, I get: "No mixer elems found"

If I do an lspci I get: 0000:02:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy LS

When I run alsaconf it says no supported PnP or PCI devices found.

I tried the "getting sound to work" from the ubuntu guide thinking that would help, since Ubuntu is Debian based, but that didn't seem to work either.

What else.... I've uninstalled ESD, then found out it wouldn't conflict... I removed and re-installed alsa-utils

I'm completely lost, if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

Have you (re)compiled the kernel with support for the card?

I dont know how to recompile the kernel, but I did just yesterday install the 686 kernel from the defalult 386 installed kernel. Is there something I need to add? It's recognized if I do an LSPCI, but not sure if that means anything. I did notice that I the alsamixer comes up now, but it only shows my USB external card.

I'm thinking that I dont have the driver installed correctly, or at all. Even though I've downloaded all the packages from ALSA website and installed them, do I need to download the driver separately?

Hmm, welcome to the world of kernel compiling.

Its not as hard as it sounds, point your browser at google and look for something like:

kernel compile 2.6

its simple really, just follow the steps of any good guide and you will be fine.
