sound card stop working (emu10k1 driver)
I have been having trouble with my sound card. It worked initially then stopped working after I installed a new kernel(2.6.9-1.667.stk16) to get my wireless network card to work. The sound came back briefly after I tried to install a newer version of the driver(emu10k1-v0.20a). I do not think this worked as many errors showed up. But once I change over from the GNOME desktop to KDE it stopped again and has never worked since. It seems to detect it and when you run any sound programme it looks like it is working, but no sound. I am afraid I have royally screwed it up. It may be best to unistall it and then reinstall it , but I am new to the Linux game and do not know how to do this. Any suggestions.
