Two Questions: Audigy Soundcard / Install Lilo after redhat on?


Hey all,

I have 2 questions.

*system stats*
*Redhat 8 *
*AMD Xp1800*

1st one. I use an audigy sound card and with redhat 8, it sees it, but cant seem to play using it.. No sound.. Using the right drivers and all! Anyone know what i can do?

Also, ive already installed linux, on a new hd, and i chose grub to be installed on its hd (hdb2 or whatever it is). Ho wcna i get dualboot without the diskette? *and having to reinstall..*

Tnx

What happens when you try to play a sound? How are you testing that?

Well, i goto terminal
Type: sndconfig

Then i get a popup: Model Creative Labs|SB Audigy
I press ok.

Then it says: The Creative Labs|SB Audigy is not currently supported
and it ends.


Then if i exit kde, and type startx i get an error during loading
"Cant start sound i/o"
"the sound server will continue using the null output device."

Thats a good way to know

***THINGS GET WORSE***

Ok, so i learned that i have to use these drivers caleld the emu10k1 or something.. So i have to recompile my kernel.. well this could be bad..

I use the nvidia kernel, (So i can have my dual monitors and so i dont know how to recompile the kernel, even when using the creaative how-to i was given..

ACK!

I did a locate on the driver, and it seems its already been compiled... Just not running i guess?

/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o failed

It seems like your soundcard has a conflicting irq with something else. Try moving it to another slot. Additionally, instead of using "insmod emu10k1" try modprobe emu10k1.

However, I'm almost 100% positive your card needs to be moved to another slot. You'll need to add

alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1

to your /etc/modules.conf file as well. I would also remove the # sign from the beginning of the line in your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file that says:

# /sbin/modprobe emu10k1

If you can't find the rc.modules file in /etc/rc.d (it might different for you as you're not running Slackware), try typing

whereis rc.modules
or
locate rc.modules

I hope this helps.
