hahaha masterc you were right , didn't have make installed
i got the drivers installed now
yet i have a problem
i have 2 sound cards , one onboard and my audigy ls
i disabled the onboard card in bios
and when linux had started up i did "modprobe snd-audigyls"
the module gets loaded, no errors ... i plugged my rear speakers and center speaker (5.1) into my audigyls and my front speakers into the onboard card
so after the "modprobe snd-audigyls" i hear crackling sounds come out of my rear and center speakers ... so i guess that's a sign my audigyls is recognised
(before install of alsa, the sounds came from the onboard card)
yet, when trying to play a sound, i hear nothing
because i don't know the command line to open a mixer from terminal, i changed from fluxbox to kde and went to volume control
now, when i used to use the onboard card, i could simply change volume by sliding some buttons
yet , now the window and its tabs were there, but they were empty .........
(mixer is KAmix)
does anyone know another mixer (that comes with asla eg.) which i can open from terminal ?
is anyone familiar with this problem ???
i guess my card isn't configured correctly yet
