How do I get sound working in Slackware 10.0? My sound card is Sound Blaster Audigy.

Alsa is the sound manager used by linux.

As superuser


As a normal user type




alsactl store

to store your alsa settings

Later on if ever you have problems with alsa or oss, try running aumix then save your settings. It might solve your problem.

Make sure you un-mute the right channels in the alsamixer.
I think its the 'M' key.

If it's muted I believe it has an 'M' by it.

It's not muted but it is specified as my second sound card. First is C-Media PCI (motherboard) and the second is SB Audigy. I can hear sound from the C-Media PCI but it's crappy.
