I have recently installed RedHat 7.0.
Now I have problem that my sound card does not work!
I have tried to configure it but with no success. I was reported by program
that it detected soundcardwith Ensoniq | 5880 AUDIO PCI , but next screen
said that this card is not supported.
Now I am cofused, because I buyed this card named
SounBlaster Audio PCI only because I was told that SOundBlaster card are well
supported by linux and I am havig this problem.
Please help me to make it noisy (that computer)!
As root, you could go to /etc/rc.d and edit your rc.modules file. Scroll down to the sound support section and see if you can't get find an appropriate Ensoniq module. Just take out the # sign for it to load on reboot. If you don't want to wait to see if one works, at the prompt type /sbin/modprobe emu10k1 or whatever module you are trying. The emu10k1 is just an example as that's the one that loads for my Soundblaster Live! If your card is one of the new Audigy's, I am almost positive it is too new to be supported. Go to creative labs and look for a linux driver if all else fails.
Originally posted by webtoe btw taz.devil, slackware has different start up scripts from most distros. i don't think red hat uses /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
i don't know why since i think its a damn site easier than arsing about with modules.conf (or conf.modules).
Actually, yeah it is easier. I always forget that Slackware isn't the "norm" though I think it should be! It's too bad there can't be a little bit more universality (is that a word? LOL) in the startup arena...
I was lately very bussy so I was unable to work
with computer configuration. Any way I do thank
webtoe and taz.devil for their affort to help.
But I must say I am not very familiar with computers
and have "little" trouble with sounding my computer.
I have read somewhere (No longer remmember where)
that alsa- driver has lot of drivers for sound cards
under linux. So I have found it on net and downloaded
file alsa-driver-0.5.12.tar.bz2. But taht is source and as
I have understand it must be choosen right driver and
that to compile. Now here is the problem. Which
driver of all that list is right one for my sound card?
And to say I belive my card is REALY SoundBlaster.
When I have put it in slot inside computer case I saw
big squared chip labeled as CREATIVE. Acctualy it is named
SoundBlaster AUDIO PCI 128. And at boot time
BIOS report this code for it:
VENDOR ID: 1274
DEVICE ID: 5880
IF anybody is familiar with this code or have this
particular card please tell me which driver to choose,
and how to compile it ( if that alsa driver are right
ones - or tell me where to find ones that will be good
And I really did not find rc.modules in my instalation
but to be honnest I so not understan file modules.conf
which IS in the /etc directory.
When I log as root and type
the sound in KDE do apear. Thank You.
One more question- if I am not anymore annoying:
I must type that command everytime I reboot computer. Is there a way to make it automatically load this moudle?
Yeah, you can have it load every time you boot as a module, but I am not familiar with which file Red Hat uses to load the correct driver. Perhaps in /etc modules.conf? A RH user would be able to tell you...
I have found solution for loading module at booting time for my RedHat distribution.
All what is need to be done is add one line at the end of the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local
And this solved all my problems with sound card!
Again I would like to say THANK YOU for the help namel to taz.devil and webtoe, and of course to this web site for enableing me to get all that help (it is all about that, isn't it)!!!
I've just installed redhat 7.2 (enigma) and had the same problem..
The easiest way to solve the problem is to switch off the 'PLUG&PLAY OS' parameter in BIOS and then loading linux and running the sndconfig again... This is the way I solved my problem with the Creative Sound Blaster PCI.
