Creative Audigy 2 (emu10k1)


Hi. I`m using Debian unstable/sid. Compiled the 2.4.26 kernel and added support for emu10k1.
When I try to modprobe emu10k1 i get this error message :

deb-box:/home/evensen# modprobe emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod emu10k1 failed


Anyone know what`s wrong and how to get my Audigy 2 card to work ?

Hey evensen

I would suggest trying the ALSA sound drivers. they are reasonably easy to install and work very well with the emu10k1 sound cards.

check out www dot alsa-project dot org and check for your card there. follow the instructions and it should work.

hey

here is link to the best starting point

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...-Creative_Labs

find your card and select details. from when I did mine (for the sound blaster live!value) I just followed the instructions from top to bottom.

you will need to download the alsa-driver, alsa-libs, and alsa-utils packages.

Basically, Download the source, compile the packages, do the modprobes and edit you modules.conf file. that should work

cool!

if you had no issues when doing the modprobe, then there should be a command that updates the modules (try modules_upgrade, that's the one for fedora)

also, log in as root and type lsmod, post that output to check if the modules are right. try giving a reboot as well (although it shouldn't be required).

OK, looks perfect, a couple of things that might help...

in the console, run "alsamixer", this should open a mixing desk and you can adjust the volume there (should be on zero as the first default).

If you are going to use xmms, you will need the xmms-alsa plugin, get it here: http://freshmeat.net/projects/xmms-a...lease_id=38543

Open xmms, click in the very left top corner and select preferences, there should be an output tab, and at the bottom you can select alsa sound driver...

if not, try a reboot and see what happens.

alsamixer
-bash : alsamixer: command not found

I downloaded for cvs. then i did make build. After that i used the command in the guide and modprobe`d. Am i supposed to do something more or is make build all i have to do, if it`s not completly installed then it`s not so strange.

After doing "make build", you need to also do "make" and then "make install"

ok, try doing "make build" again before doing the "make"

I think the error may be this, do you have the kernel source code on your machine, i think it's like /usr/src/linux or something like that?

okay, i'm a bit stumped...let me think
start at the beginning, cd to ../alsa-driver-xxx, run "make build --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes", then "make" and then "make install" if all this works, type ./snddevices and it should do some stuff.

now do "chmod a+rw /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/sequencer /dev/midi"

lets see if that works for a start
