How to change sound driver


I'm changing my main computer from mandrake 9.0 to slackware 9.1, both systems automatically use emu10k for my soundblaster live sound card, how in slackware do I change it to snd-emu10k?

in your /etc/modules.conf file should have....alias sound emu10k1
in your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules you need to un comment the line for SB driver........also you need to install the emu10k1 driver and emu-tools........you can get these from sourceforge........

Hey thanks 320MB, I'll try that as soon as I get Slackware reloaded, just blew O.S. up trying to get wheel mouse to work, so as soon as I get back from the drawing board, I'll do this, thanks again...

The drivers at source forge, are they updated versions, or are they the same, I ask because I don't see any difference in them, but I do know that it does support my audigy card?

I got the soundblaster working !!!

I temporarily gave up on this one, while trying to get my dialup modem working, I ran across something on internet that said OSS
open sound system supports many sound cards, even soundblaster, so I went to controll panel and at top selected open sound system, I opened Xine and unmuted "again", and then checked /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and soundblaster is still commented but everything still works, because of the open sound system support, enabling it in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules is un neccesary...
