have you tried

/sbin/modprobe/emu10k1

that should load the module for a SoundBlaster Live.

is incorrect

but here's what I do

Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and look for the sound card section for this...


Code:
# Sound Blaster Live support:
/sbin/modprobe emu10k1
You'll need to uncomment it if it isn't already, then either reboot, or run the command

Code:
/sbin/modprobe emu10k1
after that you'll need to su to root, and
Code:
chmod 666 /dev/dsp*; chmod 666 /dev/mixer*
and you should be good to go.
