Poor code? Nonsense.

The first thing many users do is blame the programmers. Chances are that it is your own fault you are getting so many errors. Did you check system requirements? Dependancies? Platform? Did you thoroughly read the readme?

If you want a specific answer, you have to ask a specific question. People here may be able to help if you have searched google, read the docs, and posted specs about gcc, driver version, etc.

Hm. I'm fairly sure the SBLive! does not need a driver; it's supported by the kernel. If you are trying to get sound out of it, you shouldn't need to compile anything.

What exactly did you download, and where did you get it? Did it come with compilation instructions? What are the compilation errors it gave you?

I'm not sure if it's the same thing, but emu10k1 is the name of a kernel module. To use it, all you have to do is (as root):

modprobe emu10k1

I don't know if that'll use all four speakers, though. I haven't tried that
