You need an ncurses development library. Do an apt-cache search ncurses dev to get a list of related packages and then install the right one.

Yep. That worked. I got everything installed. then I did
Code:
debian:/usr/src/alsa/alsa-utils-1.0.9a# modprobe snd-ca0106;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
Then alsamixer, but sound still does not work, should I have apt-get remove alsa, before I did this? It seems that the old settings are still in effect.

Can you post the output of cat /var/lib/alsa/asound.state? I'd like to compare it to another set I found.

Another thing, do you have a volume control called "Audigy Analogue/Digital Output Jack" in alsamixer?

Here are all of the things that I can manipulate in alsamixer:
Analog Center/LFE
Analog Front
Analog Rear
Analog Side
CAPTURE feedback into PLAYBACK
SPDIF Center/LFE
SPDIF Rear
SPDIF Out (no vol control, only mute/unmute)
SPDIF Rear
SPDIF Unknown

Here are some more things that alsamixer wont let me do anything with.
AC97 in
SPDIF in
SPDIF out
SRC out

Can you experiment with muting/unmuting SPDIF Out? In other words play sound, toggle SPDIF Out, play sound, toggle SPDIF Out.

Also, I've found some information on the drivers here. It may help you in some way.

I seem to be having similar problems with my sound card. However, I don't have modules for snd-ca0106, snd-emu10k1 or snd-emu10k2. I'm running 3.1 with 2.6.8-2-386 kernel (debian precompiled).

Also, how do you make the /dev/dsp device under 2.6 kernels?

Greg Mink, you should definetly have the modules. How did you come to the conclusion that you didn't?

Sound doesn't work when it's off or on. When I toggle it, though, I hear a faint "popping sound".

Well try this link and see if it helps.

Also, it sounds a bit like there may be some confusion between analogue and digital outputs on your card/driver. Check out this link as it has some good analysis that gets down to some nitty-gritty. It may serve only to educate you a little but that couldn't hurt, I suppose.

I give up with alsa. I'm going to try to see if Oss works, but I need to uninstall alsa first. I tried 'make uninstall' for all alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-oss, and alsa-utils (all the things i compiled from source). In addition I 'apt-get uninstall' for alsa-base, alsa-oss, and alsa-utils (none of which were installed). Debian still tries to load the driver. It gives me errors like this:
Code:
modprobe: fatal error trying to load snd-ca0106
driver ca0106 loaded successfully
This makes it impossible to install oss.
Code:
Debian:/home/jantosh/sound# ./oss-install
Checking for any previously installed sound drivers...
You appear to have the the kernel level sound driver installed as a loadable
module. Unload it by executing rmmod sound and try installing OSS/Linux again.

If this error repeats again you probably have the sound driver being loaded
automagically by the kerneld daemon. In this case you should log out from the
X Windows session, then press <ctl><alt><F1> and log in on the Linux console
as root and then install OSS again.
I also deleted the /etc/modutils/alsa file. Is there anyway to get rid of Alsa?

After you delete that file you have to run update-modules.

Did you try that?

Or that?

for nongeeks only:-
For sound working for ur new cards mostly onboard u may need to compile a new kernel with
kernel-module-alsa .deb files.to be more precise get this link and read it fully.
http://www.linuxforu.com/yabbse/inde...;threadid=1223
for kernel compiling
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=206992
IT is not that tough.u can atleast experiment it in a spare deb sarge machine or by installing a new deb sarge on another partition on same pc.best of Luck

>Greg Mink, you should definetly have the modules. How did you >come to the conclusion that you didn't?

I tried to modprobe the ca0106 and snd-ca0106 modules and it says module not found. When I look in the modules directory, I find the emu module but no ca. Also when I run modconf, I see emu is in the list ca isn't.

Here is what I have installed:
install:/dev# dpkg -l | grep alsa
ii alsa-base 1.0.8-7 ALSA driver configuration files
ii alsa-oss 1.0.8-1 ALSA wrapper for OSS applications
ii alsa-utils 1.0.8-4 ALSA utilities
ii alsamixergui 0.9.0rc2-1-7 graphical soundcard mixer for ALSA soundcard
ii alsaplayer 0.99.76-0.3 PCM player designed for ALSA
ii alsaplayer-com 0.99.76-0.3 PCM player designed for ALSA (common files)
ii alsaplayer-gtk 0.99.76-0.3 PCM player designed for ALSA (GTK version)
ii alsaplayer-oss 0.99.76-0.3 PCM player designed for ALSA (OSS output mod

What's sounds cards are high quality for music/recording, etc but is (and has been for a while) completely supported, that I could buy without ending up with some weirdo late rev model that's not compatible with the original?
