Emu10k1 drivers...where can I get them?


I keep reading about these Emu10k1 drivers which I've used before when installing Gentoo, yet I have no idea where to find them for Suse. My Audigy 2 Platinum won't work with Suse 8.2, so I'm assuming just an up to date driver is worth a shot, but I have no clue where to go looking for the driver.

Also ~ When I was working with Gentoo I found an Emu10k2 driver...is this experimental or is it designed for new Creative cards?

Thanks!

Suprising that SuSE 8.2 did not put that card to use. The drivers you are talking about are built into every kernel (well they are there) you may have to recompile your kernel to get them to work. Search the forums first. Seems like I've come across others having trouble with the audigy. Are you getting any kind of errors when you try to use it or did SuSE just fail to see it?

I just got my new audigy 2 platinum zs to work. I used the ALSA drivers. Follow this link. Follow the instructions precisely, except where he says configure the alsa-driver package with ./configure --with-cards=, use --with-cards=emu10k1, and follow the rest of the instructions, until you get to where he says to "modprobe snd-;..." use "modprobe snd-emu10k1;..." and where he says to edit the modules.conf, replace snd- with snd-emu10k1.
Follow the rest of his instructions. BE SURE TO: run alsamixer, and adjust all of the sound up, or you will only get sound from the front headphone jack!. When you finish, all should work great!

I got up to the last step and this happened:

linux:/usr/src/alsa/alsa-utils-0.9.7 # modprobe snd-emu10k1;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
/lib/modules/2.4.20-64GB-SMP/kernel/sound/acore/snd-hwdep.o: unresolved symbol snd_compat_strlcpy
/lib/modules/2.4.20-64GB-SMP/kernel/sound/acore/snd-hwdep.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-64GB-SMP/kernel/sound/acore/snd-hwdep.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-64GB-SMP/kernel/sound/acore/snd-hwdep.o: insmod snd-emu10k1 failed

I get an error on bootup that it can't load that kernel module (this message appeared before I installed the alsa drivers). Any ideas?

Well, that is kinda out of the scope of my knowledge(for now anyways.) Perhaps someone else can help with this?

Twiggy, did you fix this? I'm having problems with my RH9, SB Live! w/ emu10k1 install. When I
Code:
insmod emu10k1
I get

I had no issues installing those drivers on Redhat 9, and actually, they installed perfectly straight out of the install program. Nothing extra was needed. Try the drivers mentioned previously in this forum.

Found out that my SB Live! is not really a SB Live! It's a Dell-OEM SB-Live! with a different chip (emu10k1X). So, I'm returning my card and getting a real SB Live!

Thanks anyway
