Soundblaster live 5.1 not working


Hello,

I've just installed my soundblaster live card. But somehow my 5.1 setup doesn't work.
I have sound from the left and right speakers, but none from the subwoofer.
How do i set up the drivers so that the third output to my subwoofer is used?

Thanks

Third output? THe SBLive! has two independant mixers - you can enable them in KDE via Control Center -> Sound -> Mixer -> Maximum number of probed mixers (try "2").

Unhappy Didn't work

Thanks, but this didn't work. Still no output to the subwoofer.
I've tried all mixer settings.

Any other ideas? This card is supported by Linux?

Thumbs up it work under linux

your sound blaster 5.1 it works very well under linux. i have the same sound card and on my SuSE 7.3 it works very well. if you have suse try configuring the sound card again by using Yast 2, its under the hardware section.

hope it works...

...otherwise do the following..........
:smash: (i am only jocking)

the best way is as said to reconfigure it

With my speakers I have to set ROUTE_ALL_TO_SUB=yes in my /usr/local/etc/emu10k1.conf.
